Cant find my WD Caviar SATAs
I'm having trouble with my two SATA disks in my computer. It has two Western Digital Caviar SATA HDDs (WD2500JD) 250GB. I've partitioned the drives so that one of them contains a 40GB ext3 -partition.
My problem is that I'm unable to both mount and partition the drives. I can't figure out why. When I do 'fdisk /dev/sda' i get:
So in my frustration I tried to fdisk /dev/sda - /dev/sdd and /dev/hda - /dev/hdd on DSL, Gentoo 2004.3 LiveCD, Slackware 10.0 installation-CD and Fedora Core 3 Installation DVD. But I still can't find my HDDs.
Unable to open /dev/sda
