I just installed a Quantum ata 100 HD. My MB supports ata66 and when I boot up it shows the HD as secondary master. When I go into my computer it doesn't show up. I have an ata cable and the jumper on the HD is set correctly. Any idea what is wrong? Thanks.

What Mobo do you have and what ata66 driver are you using?

Did you do fdisk and format?

My secondary ide socket is bad on my MB. I just switched it to the primary and now it shows up. I do have another question though. I am getting this for my new drive-Drive D is using MS-DOS compatibility mode file system. What do I have to do to get rid of this message? Thanks for the help.

Now this message- Drive D is using MS-DOS compatibility mode file system is gone, and my drive is working properly. I went into device manager and clicked on disk drives and my new drive doesn't show up. Do I need to worry about it not showing up?
