Hi,
I had 2 Western Digital 500 GB HD installed and set in RAID.

Yesterday I bought another one and installed it... but I can't initialise it, in Disc Utility it won't do anything...

Now I've taken the first two out of RAID What should I do?

How do I go about putting all 3 WD HD into RAID?

I appreciate any suggestions.

Shane

What RAID level are you using? If not RAID 5, you will need to rebuild the array in order to add drives. If it's hardware-based RAID, you'll need to access the RAID controller's configuration firmware to rebuild the set.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Aparently, I just waited long enough and Mac did it on it's own.
