        ummmm....casecutter is asking for your system specifications: What motherboard, cpu, ram, etc is you computer made with? What operating system are you using (If Windows is it 95, 98, 98se, ME, 2000, XP {service pack 1 or 2?}, Vista ... a version of Linux or a Mac operating system? )? Anything you can tell us about your sytem may give us the reason for the problem.
        Antec 900 case (4 120mm and 1 200mm lighted fans + UFO flashing light set + 2 12" and 1 6" Mutant Mods meteor lights) - Aerogate ll thermal controller - Asus M2N-e SLI - AMD 64 X2 AM2 6400+ - Corsair TX650 PSU - MSI 450GTS Cyclone OC - 2 X 2GB Patriot Extreme Performance PC2 6400 RAM - SATA 320 GB Seagate HD, SATA 300GB Maxtor HD and IDE 80 GB Samsung HD - Floppy Drive/Card Reader Combo - LG SuperMulti Lightscribe 18x DVD RW - Plextor PX-716A DVD r/rw - Windows 7 Home Premium 64

        Crude but Effective ... it is a way of life.

            my first guess is that your going to need to do a bios update for your motherboard, so we need to work out the model & make of the motherboard

              Some times the simplest projects turn into a big pain in the axx.

              Are you adding another drive or replacing one? Did the drive come pre-formatted? What about the dip switch? Are they set correctly? Is the drive you are replacing a 30 GB? Do you or did you have a 30gb drive installed? If your dip switch on the new drive isn’t set correctly the system may not be looking at the correct drive. That would also cause an error because the machine wouldn’t know C from D and so-on. Could it be that the drive is a 30 GB drive? Check the label on the drive. I know it sounds stupid but shxx happens.
              When you put it into your other PC did you add it in as a new drive or replace a drive that was installed?
