    Just going to go out on a limb: Do you have your hdd's connected to the SATAIII ports (the dark blue/white ports)?

    Have you updated your BIOS? How about checking for new HDD firmware(s)? ^^

    I thought SATA didn't have master/slave configs.. only mentioned this as he said it was a SATA III drive... Also.. Only time the cable should matter is when you are using cable select.. which I NEVER use if i'm working on a IDE drive.. .. NEVER let the machine decide what is best for it LOL
