Cause i was gaming a while ago, and windows gave errors that there were errors when writing.

I have 2 drives, a SATA 74gb raptor as boot drive with my OS, and a 500GB IDE for games and personal files, the game was located on the 500GB drive.

When rebooting the bios post wouldnt list the IDE drive anymore after probably a minute of "waiting", in windows it wouldnt list the drives anymore either.

My brother who has the exact same setup as me besides a 500gb stata drive instead, detects the 500GB IDE drive, can read it, write on it etc.... using the same cable.

So im sorta happy my drive didnt crash, cause it years of personal files collected, but its odd only the IDE drive wont work anymore, everything else including sata still works flawlessly.

Is there anymore troubleshooting i can do to see what the actual issue is? or should i take back the mobo to the shop since i still got warrenty luckely.

yes had it happen, best idea is to get either another 500gb SATA drive and ask your brother to transfer the files, that or get an IDE Raid card

IDE can fail. Return it if still in warranty. Usually this problem is due to the cable though. It can also be problem of CD-ROM/DVD conflicting with HDD if on same cable. If you put the drive BACK in your PC does it work? Do you have IDE1 and IDE2? Swap socket and/or unique cable for each IDE device.

If still fail then get a new MB.

Check the cable, Check master slave configuration if you are using Optics on the same cable set HDD jumpers to "Master with slave present " and the DVD-RW to slave If the hdd is alone on the cable set jumpers single or remove jumpers for cable select and single on some HDDs then go to bios > standard setting and auto detect all channels and see if it will come up.
