Have you added it to your hardware RAID?
If you have not, you can't just plug in the drive. You need to declare it.

yes, i pluged it raid sata interface, and configured it via Raid menau.

What does dmesg show? You created a new RAID with one disk? Or you added it to the original RAID and then I understand why you can't see a new disk. ;)

Anyone else to help?
