Shocking new bug on Vista x64 - cannot detect a SATA drive
So I spent weeks finding out how to fix the annoying 'Found new hardware'
problem everytime I connected a simple USB flash drive, and I thought
'Great'. Good old Microsoft!

Then I get a brand new Samsung SATA 500GB HDD and plug it in...and guess
what? Windows asks me for drivers (this is a HARD DRIVE for goodness sake)
and then searches Windows update...can't find anything, so I eventually
manually point it to C:\Windows. 10 minutes later it's still searching for
the drive.

How can this simple, basic thing be still happening almost a year into
launch, and where are the fixes?

Do you have other SATA devices that are working OK? If not then you
might need the SATA driver for your motherboard. Vista doesn't have
SATA drivers for all configurations so sometimes the drivers must be loaded
from diskette
or off the motherboard (or add-in card) maker's Website.
