Are you running in RAID ?? Maybe it's complaining that youre not. What version of windows is it? And what does it say / the error? Or is that it. It just says it cant be done?

Why would you need RAID

You may not need it but it may need it. So it'll work. We wont know why its not working until we find out what the error is saying. We cant do much, if all it says is it cant be done

Don't ask that.

Perhaps they've both been pre-assigned the same drive letters... depending on the OS.
