Need Help adding second drive!!

I have a TCD540040 series 2 ver. 7.2.1 I have a 200gb hd installed and want to add another one, but no matter what I do it will not recognize the new drive. I have doing the dd copy to the new drive and then the mfsadd like hinsdale said and it did not work. I tried deleting the partition and just doing hte mfsadd like weaknees says, but nothing.

Any ideas on why it will not see the new second drive?

I think that you need search posts from Weaknees. I have seen other posts that Weaknees requires you to send in your machine if you want to do something similiar (and have bought upgrade drives from them and are adding a second drive). The key is adding the second drive. There is some quirk in the new software in which you have to do something special to marry the drives... I hope this gets you started in the right direction.
