2tb SATA drive compatibility
Posted on 2011-02-28
I have a PC with a Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-DS2H motherboard
currently installed is a 1tb SATA hard drive.
I have purchased a 2nd HD for additional storage it is a
Western Digital WD20EARS 2TB Hard Drive SATAII 64MB Cache
now, I have a problem..... the drive does not appear in BIOS, or windows...
I remove the existing 1tb drive and have just the 2tb drive connected, and still nothing....
I contacted WD, and was told to contact gigabyte about drive compatibility... unfortunately gigabyte are not as easy to contact as WD, and I had to use their email form on the website.... 1 week later and still no reply....
I can't imagine that the motherboard is not compatible with the HD, any ideas where I go from here?
