Help please:

I have a ASUS M2A-VM and I am trying to install a third SATA drive of 1 TB and have been having big problems only one HD shows up and the DVD, I have a 160GB ATA drive connected as well as 1 DVD on slot one of SATA on number 2 sot has a SATA 1 TB drive connected, now these SATA plugs are 2 red and 2 blue, when I tried to connect the third drive this is when I got into all the problems.

I have the manual but I don't under stand it at all.

Thanks a million in advance for all any help I can receive on this problem. :)

So you have your primary hard drive connected to Sata Slot 1 (Red) and your DVD drive connected to Sata Slot 2 (Red)?

Is the 1TB drive spinning up when it's connected to the PSU? (I feel I should remind us that you should be careful with an open case that's powered on...)

If all three drives have power, try using the Sata cable from the DVD drive for the 1TB drive. If both drives show up, you may have a defective cable.

Please report back so we can continue to troubleshoot if you continue to encounter issues.
