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.
