    I have an abit mobo with the High Point Raid controller. I want to use this as just an extra ide port so I can hook up a third harddrive. I installed the highpoint software, and it shows up as a scsi raid controller. In device manager, the harddrive show up, but it has no volume information.

    The problem is that the drive doesn't show up in windows with a drive letter. I can't see it to even format it.

    Any help?

    The drive is a maxtor 200gb 7200 rpm 8mb cache

    Does it show up under Disk Management? You need to partition a drive before you can format it.
