windows Xp slave drive

By tonye ·
I have installed a new WD master drive on windows xp and a samsung slave drive i cannot get windows to recognise the slave. CMOS sees the slave windows device mgr can see the slave, but i cannot access it. All straps are correct and i have tried different IDE buses. HELP :)

Try connecting the drive as a single or master on the other secondary IDE channel. If you have CDrom drives slave those to a hard drive.

Make sure the 1st drive's jumpers are set to master with a slave and the other is set to be a slave.

I have found my problem, I had to assign the drive in Computer Management.
