Hitachi IDE 250Gb HDD Problem


Active Member
I have a Sony RS404 that I have just bought another HDD, Hitachi 250GB from

I am having some issues with the correct configuration of both drives, so that windows xp will see both drives for storage.

This is the first internal HDD that I have purchased. Will I have to enter system bios at all?

Any help is appreciated

You shouldn't have to go into the Bios at all, when I put an extra drive into my RS202 it picked it up straight away.

What you have to do is set the new drive to be a Slave Drive, this is set by jumpers on the back of the drive near the connectors usually.
