A couple of years ago I had the same problem with a 3ware 8506-4LP SATA
RAID card.  I was attaching 4 300GB Maxtor drives.  I ended up having
to update the BIOS on the drives before they were recognized by the
card.  Check with the drive manufacturer to see if they have an updated
BIOS (Maxtor even sent me a SATA card to do the BIOS updates with).
