    Just bought this off of a fellow OCAU'er and windows won't detect in in my computer but it shows up in device manager.

    I went to download firmware and it said that installing new firmware on any drive that has CCH firmware on it will make it unusable..

    What's happening? and where can i get drivers?

    Have you given it a drive letter in disk management?

    Problem solved, had to boot into Ubuntu and format it through there, seems windows wouldn't recognize whatever it was in the first place (EFI or something)
