Ok guys... I had a WD 80gb Caviar HDD in my old Dell, it has alot of important files on it that I am trying to get, so I pulled out the IDE cable that came with my P6T Deluxe, plugged it in to the MB, too the Hard drive, and plugged in the power cable.

I also swapped the jumper on the HDD to "Slave" it was on "CS" not sure what that means, but I assumed it made the drive the Master drive.


Anyway, PC boots up fine, but HDD is not detected on bootup, but I can see it in device manager in Vista, but the drive is not showing up in explorer for me to explore through....


Any help is appreciated guys!!!!!

One other issue you are up against in case you aren't aware. Vista is much much slower at copying or moving files around then XP, I mean really Slow!
