    The old SATA drive is connected through a SATA cable. No USB. When we slave a SATA, there is no configuration like old IDE. Isn't it? I just connected this like a normal drive into one SATA port like the first OS main drive.

    It is going through the Check file process when I reboot the PC, but in the end it doesn't show up under My computer.

    If the drive is connected properly check disk management. I have a drive that is never given a drive letter on new windows installs, just need to go into disk management and assign it a letter.

    Under the disk management it is not shown.

    Only this active new drive and the DVD drive is shown under the Disk Management.

    Is there any hidden option in Disk management?

    I connected this drive with a SATA cable and it shows in BIOS.

    Any other utility that I can use?

    Is it connected to the save controller as your new drive, or a different one that may be set for raid or soemthing?

    Yes, It connected to the Slave controller of the MB. It is marked as black color port and others are in Red. Just for the heck of it I connected to the Red ones too, no luck.

    When I reboot it goes through the CHKDSK process. It takes more than 1 hour and go through lots of deleting and processing files. At the end it says, unexpected error occurs and then go to the normal boot to Windows.

    At this point I'd just get yourself a USB/Sata slave cable, pull the data off you wanna save and format the sucker!

    What is the difference in connecting between a SATA and a USB interface?

    The USB drivers may pick it up as a external drive
