If your motherboard has both connections you can have both (IDE and SATA) working together
Depends of your motherboard features.

Windows Xp especially six years ago never had good native sata support. You need to load sata drivers for it to recognize the sata drive.
You need to got to Asus's website and download XP sata drivers for your motherboard. You can try to install them with the sata drive only connected in safe mode and if not with a floppy(if you still use them). Also make sure that you are connecting the sata drive to the correct sata port on the motherboard usually sata 0 or 1.

I don't know how to plug in the wires for the ASUS a8n sli deluxe motherboard


Here is the manual for your motherboard (since describing a diagram probably isn't very useful...)
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket939/A8N-SLI/e2024_a8n-sli.pdf

You want to look at pages 27-35, they describe what you need to plug into the motherboard. Basically make sure you have connected:

1) 24-pin power cable (from power supply)
2) 4-pin power cable (for CPU from power supply)
3) Any case fans with 3/4 pin connectors.
3) hard drives (SATA or IDE)
4) USB front panel ports
5) Audio front panel ports
6) Case plugs (power LED, hdd LED, power switch, and reset switch).

If I bought a SATA dvd drive, where would I connect it to? Does it take SATA dvd, or does it still need to use IDE only?


This MoBo has 4 SATA connectors. Assuming you have one or two hard drives just plug it into one of the spare ports. If you are unsure, carefully follow the data cable from a hard drive to the MoBo to find the ports.

Need diagram of how to hook up my western digitial sata harddrive to mother board a asus a7n8x-e deluxe


this motherboard does not support your new Hard Drive. SATA is a connection type required for your hard drive. Your motherboard supports IDE connector. You probably can get a pci card that allows you to attach the hard drive.

Where to start


Disconnect the Maxtor drive completely. Play a game or what every & see if the system runs ok. Personnally you should be running a SATA as C:\ since it will transfer much faster than an IDE. Give it a try & post you're findings.

NI8 SATA DVD Drive compatability


You must have added the SATA drive after setting up the IDE. If both drives are using the same os this will not function. Ony one drive can have the os on it. All SATA's are seen as a master.
To correct this problem, disconnect the IDE drive. Hook up the SATA drive. Again if the SATA has the os on it everything will run. Change the jumper on the IDE and set it as a slave. Hook the IDE up. Enter the bios & do not list the IDE in the boot to section. Problem solved. While in windows, format the IDE drive.
You do not want windows thinking you want a dual boot system.
So you understand, in the bios -boot settings this is how things should be listed.
Boot device 1 Sony Optiarc DVD drive
Boot device 2 WD raptor SATA, In-stall your os to this drive
