    Not recognising SATAII drive on Asus A8V

    Just bought a Seagate SATAII 200Gb. I'm trying to get it to recognise on an Asus A8V motherboard. I'm sure the power cable and sata cable are securely fitted and plugged correctly. This is no jumper pin on the back of the drive but the case mentions no jumper settings - do I need to manually set a jumper to SATAI (one) mode since I doubt the A8V supports SATAII speeds? That's my only thought.

    When I try and boot start up informs me no hard drive can be found...I can get windows install to start up but the point at which you have to specify the install drive it just can't continue due to lack of a hard drive (I have installed the SATA driver pressing F6 previously....so that's not the problem...and I used the same driver for the A8V before so I know it's the correct driver).

    Bit stuck really, any suggestions?
