SOURCE: Windows did not detect SATA during installation

You need the manual to your motherboard to set it up in the BIOS. http://www.biostar-usa.com/docsmain.asp In the drop down menu select M7NCD ULTRA. I hope this helps. Let me know.

SOURCE: SATA problem during windows install

You would need to make a floppy disk with the sata drivers on them for windows to use during the installation so it can recognise the drive... assuming you don't have memory problems that is...

SOURCE: Biostar P4M900-M7 SE BIOS ROM Checksum Error

The bios upgrade procedure stopped at half , leaving the bios corrupted. The computer now cannot do a regular boot procedure, this is the reason why it cannot recognise some device. If you are still able to boot from floppy, you can restart bios upgrade procedure from floppy. Just download floppy version upgrade and re do setup. Even if you do not find latest bios version, just download a floppy upgrade that is working, so that you can restart your machine regularly , and then do the update to latest version.
If you are not able to complete the bios setup, the only way to fix your motherboard will be flashing the CMOS chipset with a chip programmer device that will reinstall bios straight into cmos chipset.
You can have this done at the service point, in this case consider also replacing your motherboard.

SOURCE: sata hdd not detected

Yes, go into the bios and make sure that SATA is turned on. Sometimes with motherboards that have two ide controllers the SATA is turned off by default. Also another thing to check is whether the motherboard is SATA I or SATA II. If it is SATA I then change the jumper on the hard drive to peg back to SATA I. Your new hard drive is SATA II and the motherboard may not support it.

Recommend me branded USB drives ?


Honestly, any USB brand will cut it for you. What you want to ensure is that you are purchasing the proper version (1.0, 2.0, or 3.0) for whatever device the key will be associated with. Also make sure you don't buy too little or too much memory. But if you know all this and you just want a reliable brand, I would go with SanDisk.

My computer does not recognize my WD external drive


You've tried different USB cables; so, that cannot be the problem.

You've tried connecting to different computers; so, the problem is _not_ your computer.

What's left is "inside" the case:
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter,
* the disk-drive.

Open the case, and remove the disk-drive, and connect it as a "slave" drive to some computer.
If it is detected, then the USB-to-disk-drive adapter that has failed.
If it not detected, then the disk-drive itself has failed.

FInd the serial-number on the Western Digital disk-drive, and enter it onto Western Digital's web-site, on the "check-warranty" page. If it's older than 3 years, the warranty probably has expired, unless you were "lucky" and got a 5-year warranty.

Western Digital has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- just buy a new Passport through their web-site, and cite the serial-number, and you'll get a significant discount on _their_ price (could be higher than your local retail computer-store) for a new (probably larger) Passport.
