    I connected one drive each at ide3 and ide4 and set the bios to "RAID", when I go the the array set up utility and hit opt 1, it does'nt find any drives, the latest RAID drv. is installed, I also tried to load WinXP in this raid config and it also saids it can't find any drives, thanks for any help.

    What type of RAID array are you trying to set up? RAID 0 or 1?
    If those drives are to be on the same array, set them up so that they are on the same cable on the same IDE port. Verify that the jumpers are both set to Master if thats what the manual suggests. Then go back into your BIOS and enable RAID support. When you're booting up, you'll see the RAID program (usually HighPoint Technologies) detect your settings and give you the option to enter the RAID BIOS (commonly control+h). Do so, set up the RAID relationship (array) between the two drives, and let it do it's thing.

    I'm trying to set set up array 1, I tried what you said and my computer hung up, my manual saids to put one drive on each raid connector and both set to master, it doesn't say to place both on the same connector, thanks anyway
