intalling a WD SATA drive

16 years 8 months ago #23398 by MadFLy
i have installed it and now it only picks up in the taskbar, but not in the computer management or windows explorer, so how am i suppose to partition the damn drive?

i have heard that i was suppose to get a driver diskette with the drive, but i didnt.

does any1 know where i can download the drivers to install, so that i can partition the drive?

What operating system are you using?

It is very uncommon not being able to see a new drive under 'Disk Management' in the Computer Management panel.

Have you checked with WD to ensure you really need drivers installed to see the drive?

On another note, double check you haven't plug the SATA drive onto a RAID supported port, hence producing the problems you are experiencing;

uhm... :oops:

sorry for that question... i havent properly checked the bios... i saw that all sata options were enabled, but then i accidentally disabled on option and all the master and primary sata options under SATA 1, SATA 2 or whatever were greyed out. when i rebooted to see if that would work, the bios finally picked up the drive and i got it in disk management.

my bad!...

The author introduces a near-real-time method of image processing in a PC-based environment. A segmentation technique based on unsupervised classification is implemented. A prototype for the detection of ice formation on the external tank (ET) of the Space Shuttle is being developed. The objective is to be able to do an online classification of the ET images into distinct regions denoting ice, frost, wet or dry areas. The images are acquired with an infrared camera and digitized before being processed by a computer to yield a false color-coded pattern, with each color representing a region. A two-monitor PC based setup is used for image processing. Various techniques for classification both supervised and unsupervised, are being investigated for developing a methodology. The implementation of two adaptive algorithms for image segmentation is discussed. The K -means algorithm is compared to another algorithm based on adaptive estimation of region boundaries
