Heres the problem

I have connected a Maxtor hard drive to my pc to operate as a slave, the purpose of this is so I can transfer files from this to my existing quantum hard drive.

I have changed the jumper settings on the Maxtor (as per manual) to slave mode and have connected to the same ide cable as my existing master drive (in the correct sequence)

The problem I have is that when I boot up, the pc only recognises the master original drive, my computer does not see the Maxtor slave

Ive looked at the hardware settings in control panel and under hard drive controllers it has a second hard drive ide device listed but with a yellow exclamation mark next to and says that it is connected but not recognised.

Any suggestions.

Do I need any drivers installed for it too be recongised or am I missing some thing

You need to go into the BIOS a set the HDD active.
You enter the BIOS at boot-up...usually the DEL your screen as it boots,sometines it tells you what to press to enter SETUP or BIOS.
If you need more help,just post back.
