Please provide hardware details. It's likely that those two drives won't work on the same controller. I've heard rumors of older drives not playing nice with newer drives on the same controller. Are you sure the first drive works at all? > Any Bios settings that would help? Don't know of any. But you might want to scan the ATA/IDE section of your BIOS to see if there's anything that might be useful. Perhaps if you can force it to a slower speed (ATA33 for example) it would work ... but I'm just guessing. -- Bill Moran Potential Technologies http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
