Got a weird (and somewhat frustrating) problem; I installed a 4 port Sabrent SATA PCI card (it has RAID function also), and I have been in and out of my bios trying to see it there. It will not populate my drive no matter the work put into driver updates, uninstall/reinstall or what I play around with in Disk Management and Device Management. Now in device management, I see the SATA card with nothing wrong. Upon restart, skipping past the bios option and pressing F4 takes me into the Sabrent utility...I'm guessing that would be the utility to turn my internal drive on? Anyway, it kicks back an error message, "No device found, press any key to continue..." This is truly a "hair-pulling-out" kind of experience because where you can see it in Windows, you can not see it on reboot/bios and NO presence of the drive in either state.

I'm running Vista SP2 and I am a video editor so I really could use those close to 3.0 USB speeds, not the 2.0 USB speeds offered through my desktop dock. P.S. There is nothing wrong with the drive, I've tried multiple combinations of cords, motherboard PCI changes and port swapping.
