    I am adding another HD to my computer.
    I set it for slave and my old one to master.


    I had to intall an IDE sdapter to make it work.

    Everything seemed to go okay.

    But it does not detect my new HD.

    WHY?

    What kind of adapter? A separate card? or a cable with dual connectors?

    Are you booting from the card with your old drive ok? I'm not familiar with adapter card configurations... does it have a bios feature that you can enter and see if it's set up correctly?

    i tried doing the same when I just added one. I had to run them on seperate IDE's.
