    Thanks Annaymous,

    This looks close to the problem solver. Little more complicated than what I had in mind.



    I just purchased a adapter that (looks) plugs into the IDE connection on Motherboard and comes with data and power cables to connect to Drive for $10 shipped. I'm wondering if the power cable connecting to the adapter that plugs into the MB is approiate.

Sata power supply with ide only mother board?


Unlike IDE drive cables, which allow you to connect at least 2 drives to the same cable, SATA cables only allow one connection from motherboard to drive per cable. You can connect as many SATA drives to your motherboard as you have SATA connections.

An external USB drive consists of tow parts:

a hard drive (usually a standard IDE or SATA drive), and

an enclosure

The enclosure is the box containing the drive. It also includes an interface to convert the data from the IDE or SATA interface on the drive to a USB (2) signal. Some enclosures include and internal power supply. The Freeagent has the power supply externally.

Hope that's what you mean.

Boot difficulties Seagat Baracuda 7200, 300 GB


Could have something to do with the IDE being set to master.. It has been known that sometimes the SATA drive will take over as the master.. Try changing the IDE drive to cable select, and see if that helps.. If not, change the SATA to slave.

If that doesn't work, post your motherboard model# along with your bios name/version.. and we'll go from there.

As a side note: When they are connected the way they are now, does the bios show both drives?
