Question about Maxtor (L01P080) 80 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Mixing ide with sata

I built a PC w/ intel board, both ide and sata capable for hard drives. initially was able to use old hard drive as a slave/ storage. everything was fine for a # of months. then something changed, an update to MS windows, or a new program, some sort of conflict appeared. now hard drive is not appearing at all. have spent weeks tweaking my bios, tweaking jumpers, reaaranging ports, re-installing maxtor drives/ software. nothing , zilch. for the life of me can't find conflict, can't bring back to life. it was working before on this system. and it has happened on other systems, based on configs, sometimes you see , sometimes you don't. not sure if it is raid conflict, though it does not appear so.raid program on power up recognizes hdd, but windows and bios don't see it. help??
thanx

Maxtor now owned by Seagate are having a number of issues with current tech, most of the time you can down load a flash for the firm ware, but there are those times that it will not work. If you had information on the drive you will not be able to retreive it unless you go through i365 a seagate company. depending on how much info you have on the drive they will charge anywhere from 400.00 - 1300.00. To this day they simply just do not provide the programme required to access the drive, I know I am going through it now..

I have connected my 300 gb sata hdd to my pc which already has a 160gb sata hdd set to master when i start up my pc they r both set to master but i am told sata hdds dont have master / slave settings


They don't have master/slave settings as only one SATA drive can connect to a controller, however some BIOS have a setting designed to facilitate older OS's like XP that don't always have drivers available for the newer SATA RAID controllers built into most mid to high end PC's. If this setting is enabled on your PC then they would look to windows like a pair of master IDE drives on a Primary and Secondary IDE Channel even though each has it's own dedicated controller.

Intel 865GSA


Looking at the vendors I buy parts from, all the cards I saw offer both SATA and IDE ports. Here's one as an example. You definitely want SATA capability as most newer drives are only being offered as SATA, so you'll have a wider selection to choose from.

Another possibility: start fresh with a new system board. If the onboard IDE controller isn't working properly, this may be a warning sign that other problems follow. You might be better off spending your money on a new mobo that already supports IDE and SATA.

Hope this helps you make up your mind. Thanks for using Fixya!

Seagate SATA 80GB Master Drive and Seagate IDE 80GB Salve Drive


Dear,

You have to make IDE drive as slave. For this put the jumper to slave in IDE drive. Possibility of CMOS battery is rare, but you can confirm it by checking your system time in BIOS. If system time is ok then there is no problem in CMOS battery and you need not to replace it.

Thanks,

945GCT-M/1333 recognize Primary IDE Master as IDE 3 Master


Start by simplifying the configuration. Disconnect the second IDE cable from the motherboard and disconnect the power to the DVD drive. Disconnect the SATA device. On the #1 IDE cable, connect the master drive to the connection on the end of the cable. Connect the Slave drive to the middle connection on the cable. Start the computer and press the key indicated to enter setup. Verify that drives are properly indentified as master and slave. If they are, shutdown the computer. Now add the IDE DVD drive to the end connection on IDE cable #2. It should be set as a Master drive. Start the PC again and go into setupand verify that the DVD is IDE #2 Master. Shut down the PC. Add the SATA device and start eh PC again. Go into Setup to verify that all of the drives are properly identifed. Restart the computer and let it boot into Windows. Open Windows Explorer to view the drive settings. If the drives are all present, but the letters are not what you want, click on START and then right click on MY COMPUTER and then left click on MANAGE. Under Storage click on DISK MANAGEMEN. The drives will all be displayed with their assisgned letters. If you need to change a drive letter, right click on the drive you want to change and select 'Change drive letter . . .'. Change it to a hight letter in the alphabet, then change the dive you want in the original postion to the now vacant letter. Finally change the original drive to the first available letter. Example: C:=IDE M1 D: E:=IDE S1 Change D: to H: then E: to D: and finally H: to E: they drives would then be: C:=IDE M1 D:=IDE S1 E:=IDE M2(DVD). Restart the PC and the drive should come up as you want them to be labled.

Good luck and please let me know how it works ouot for you.

Connecting new hard drive


If the old one is still conected you can connect it the same way if not here is how to::

Well firstly they are 2 types IDE (large connector) and SATA (small connector)

IDE

of an ide cable has 3 jacks 1 for the main board and 2 for IDE drives
2 drive must be set to master and the other to slave
Set the drives by using the jumper on the back the instructions are written on the drives
Connect the Ide Cable and then the power and turn you system on

IF ITS SATA
connect the sata cable to both hard drive and main board
connect the power cable and your done!!

NB:: sata ports are labeled SATA 1 SATA 2 etc

IDE are LABELED IDE 1 IDE 2

Ide is a large grey cable black connector SATA is usually orange or red and small

Motherboard blew up


I would recommend buying a replacement computer, and install the Dell IDE drive in an external 3.5" IDE hard drive enclosure. This way you can pull your information off the the Dell hard drive, and then blow it away.

Keep in mind that new computers use a SATA drive, your old Dell '8200 has an IDE drive. Also keep in mind that your Dimension 8200 drivers won't work on the new computer.

You might be able to install your Dell drive as a slave if you have an open IDE channel available.

Good news is, your old Dell uses RAMBUS memory, which is worth a lot. It's a good parts computer, and most people who look for computer parts know of the bad capacitor issue on Intel made Dell motherboards from that era.
