Question about Alesis ADAT HD24 Fireport (ALADHDFIR)

HD24 won't mount drive in Bay 2

Drive mounts, immediately unmounts, and read-oud says to check jumper setting. All ribbon and power connectors are tight. Switching power connectors changes nothing. This occurs in bay 2 only. Bay 1 operates properly

    I have the exact same problem in Bay 2 only. I have a Western Digital drive

    HELP!

    I have the same problem except it is on both drives. One time it will boot up fine - next time nothing but the "Check jumper settings" message. It is a WD 320 gig.

    I have the same problem with both bays. Mine has done it every since I owned it. I have just made pulling the drive out and putting it back in until works part of my normal operating procedure. Mostly I have WDC drives. After it does mount, it seems to work well thereafter.

Alesis published a patch for the HD24 which involves adding a 2200uF capacitor to the HD24, which solves this problem for some drives that never mounted before. As electrolytic capacitors age, their capacity reduce- which may cause this problem. It may well be you can fix this problem by replacing the existing 2200uF capacitor with a fresh one, keeping the polarity of the capacitor in mind of course.

How to slave the hard drive


You must go to BIOS setup and follow the steps.God bless youHowever follow this steps:

Instructions
1
Remove the screws on your computer case and slide the cover off of the machine. Notice the hard drive bays in the front of the machine. The existing hard drive is installed in one of these bays.


2
Use the tweezers to set the jumper pins to "Slave" mode. The jumper pins are white connectors located on the back of the hard drive. Above the jumper pin section on the hard drive is the schema to set the drive to "Slave."




3
Insert the hard drive into the computer case bay underneath the existing drive. Screw in the drive and mount it to the case using the screws included with the hard drive packaging.


4
Connect the hard drive cable from the main hard drive to the secondary slave drive. There are two connectors on the hard drive cable. The very end of it is inserted into the main hard drive. The middle connection is used for the slave drive. Insert this secondary, middle connector into your newly installed drive.


5
Insert one of the power supply cables into the back of the hard drive. This supplies electrical power to the device.


6
Replace the case cover back onto the machine. Ensure you replace the screws to properly fasten it to the computer case.

How do i install this drive?


Unplug the power cable from your power supply and open up your computer Don't forget to wear your antistatic wrist band. Determine which drive bay you are going to install a CD-ROM into. You should pick on of the uppermost drive bays. Before you install a CD-ROM, make sure you have the proper jumper settings. Since we are only installing a single CD-ROM, set the jumpers as MASTER. The jumper settings are different for each CD-ROM drive, so consult your owner's manual so you know which pins to cover up. Once you have the jumpers set, install your CD-ROM in the computer's case. How you secure the CD-ROM in one of the uppermost drive bays depends on your case. Some CD-ROM drives have to be screwed into the drive bay, while other cases come with brackets (like mine) to attach to the CD-ROM drive so that it slides into the drive bay and locks in place.


Connect the power to the back of the CD-ROM drive, then connect the ribbon cable to the back of the CD-ROM drive. Your ribbon cable has three connectors, one in the middle and one on each end. The middle connector is a "SLAVE" connector that is used if you would install an additional CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
Connect one of the end connectors to the CD-ROM drive, and connect the other end connector to the appropriate spot on your motherboard. Note, hard drives and CD-ROM drives have the same style of connector on the motherboard. You want to connect your CD-ROM drive to the motherboard slot that isn't red or is the highest numbered of all the IDE slots.





Power on your computer after you plug it in. Your computer should recognize the new CD-ROM. If it doesn't, Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
Hope this helps

Cant get burner to reconised on pc


Since this is an IDE drive, please check the Master/Slave/Cable Select jumpers, if you've connected the drive in the same cable of your hard drive, you should check its jumper settings, if hard drive is set as Master, the DVD writer it should be as Slave, if the hard disk jumper is set to Cable Select (CS), the DVD should be in the same way too. After this check if DVD drive is identified correctly in BIOS, it's a good idea to set drive detection as Auto, if this all is OK, check its driver in Windows, it must be appear as a DVD-RW drive.

MY COMPUTER KEEP SHOW NEW HARDWARE NOT FOUND


you may have not properly set the jumpers on your new installed hard drive.

usually a computer will have 2 eide drive controllers where you would connect a ribbon cable. a ribbon cable has a middle connector and end connector and obviously another end connector that connects to the motherboard)
now you can connect upto to devices to that ribbon cable. most computers will have one device connected to the end connector (the hard drive) and no devices connected to the middle connector or sometimes they may have 2 device on the same cable: the hard drive on the end and a cd/dvd drive on the middle. others computers may have one ribbon cable for each device as computers usually come with 2 drive controllers (so you can connect 2 cables which means a total of upto 4 eide devices)

now, when you connect devices on 1 ribbon cable, the end device is the master device, the one the middle is the slave. to make a device a master or a slave you need to set a jumper. the jumper is usually located in between the ribbon cable connector and the power connector, the legend to know where the jumper goes to make it a slave or a master is usually on the label of the hard drive. you may need to check that label and with some pliers make the proper setting for that jumper.

on a new hd usually the jumper setting will be in master. so if you connected the hard drive on a ribbon cable that already has a master at the end it may not be detected. try to connect that master device on another ribbon cable that has no other devices connected and connect it on the end connector (not the middle one). if you have no other option but to connect it in the middle already having a master device at the end, set the jumper to on the slave position.

while you are at it. make sure you have your power connector and data (ribbon) cable properly seated.

if the caviar hd your are trying to install is an old hd and you know that you have the proper hd configuration and the cables properly seated, it is possible that no detection means hd failure.

Hard Drive not mounting


Check the jumper on each hard-drive.

My guess is that the WD drive has the jumper in the "correct" position, for mounting inside an external case, while the other drives have their jumper set to an "incorrect" position.

Set the jumper to MA(ster), not to SL(ave), nor to C(able)S(elect).

Can the 310S PC Desktop Use HDDs running at 7200 RPM?


If there are unused connectors on the hard drive ribbon cables, and unused molex power plugs, then yes. Be sure to securely mount the drives in the case. Also check the jumper settings for all drives.

Hard Drive Installation


Hi emceedrive, I gather you are using ATA/PATA IDE hard disk drives? Each hard disk drive has a large white sticker on it. Listed there are pin settings to set the IDE to Master or slave & Master with a slave. (We want to leave you're drive with windows on it alone). Not changing its jumper or not adding a jumper for now. We are not hooking up you're second drive just yet either.
Oh, please you're not an idiot either.
Unplug the power cable from the PC & open you're case.
Please open you're ASUS P4P800 SE manual to section 2.2.3 Motherboard layout. We want to connect the data cable to SEC_IDE1 first because once PRI_IDE1 is connected you will not be able to connect SEC_IDE1's data cable up to the DVD drive bay.
So grab a data cable for you DVD drive. It may have three connectors on it. Plug the connector that is the furthest from the other 2 connectors on the cable into the motherboard slot named SEC_IDE2. The data cable only goes in one way. Run the remainder of the cable up to the DVD player but do not connect it to the player yet. It is ok to fold the data cable which will help in routing it upwards to the DVD bay. Than connect the data cable to you're primary master IDE drive. (The one with windows already installed on it). The data cable should look just like the DVD data cable. Again you want to connect the furthest connector on the data cable into the MB slot named PRI_IDE1.
For now it’s best not to install the drive into the drive bay. Stand it up next to your case or lay it down flat with a sheet of paper under it. Connect the power cable to the drive. Plug in the PC's power cord & power up the PC & start pressing the delete key every two seconds until the bios main menu loads. You should see the Primary Hard disk drive listed at the main menu. Now go to the title Boot in the bios. Open boot order. The boot order of the devices should be as follows.
Boot device 1. (Floppy Disk Drive)
Boot device 2. (DVD Disk Drive) [None shown it’s not connected to the system].
Boot device 3. (Model number of your Primary IDE Master HDD).
Once this is set, save the bios & exit. The system should auto restart & windows should load. Let windows finish loading. Than shut down windows normally.
Unplug the PC's power cord. Since you had to remove a DVD drive you'll need to set the remaining DVD player's jumper on the drive to a Master & connect the data cable & power cord to it. (You may have to remove the DVD to see where the Master pins are located. It will be marked on the DVD player near the pins).
Now take you're new drive, do not insert it into the drive bay. Look at you're Master drive's white label. Set the jumper on the master drive first. It should be set as a Master drive with a slave.
Connect a jumper for this.
Go to you're new drive. Again look at its white label. Set this drive's jumper as a Slave drive. The Master drive should be connected to the end of the data cable. The new slave drive should be connected to the next in line connector.
Once all data cables & power cables are connected plug in the PC's power cord & boot the system, again pressing the delete key every two seconds until the boot main menu loads. Now you should see the Primary IDE Master drive & you're new Primary IDE Slave drive listed. You should also see the DVD as the Secondary IDE Master. Go to the title "Boot" again. Set the boot order as mentioned above. Save & exit the bios. Windows should load as it did before. Once windows has finished loading open windows Explorer & see if you're new slave drive is listed.
Shut down the system & unplug the power cord. Unplug the slave drive & mount it into its drive bay. Take a black marker & mark the side of the drive as slave. Disconnect the Master drive & connect it into its drive bay. Reconnect the data cables & power cables. Check all connectors before closing the case up. Re-connect the PC's power cord & boot the system. Everything should be fine. If you have a problem getting the data cable connected to the slave drive because its closer to the DVD drive as opposed to the Primary IDE Master drive you can make the slave drive a Secondary IDE Master (Change its jumper setting according to the drive’s label for Master with a slave) & connect the DVD player as a Secondary IDE Slave. (Change its jumper to slave). Change the Primary IDE Master drive’s jumper as a Master with no slave, single drive. That all.

Good luck emceedrive!
Take your time. Any troubles please post here.
You should be fine though.

PATA Harddisk connection


Hi Murtazasoni, if you have the manual for K8V-MX motherboard you shouldn't have any troubles. You can download it from this link, Win XP; http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=K8V-MX&SLanguage=en-us
The IDE data ribbon only connects to the PATA drive & motherboard in one direction. Please see the top of page 1-22 for instructions. Most data ribbons for IDE drives have three connectors. The connector farthest from the other two connectors (Two connectors very close to each other), is plugged directly to the motherboard as shown & explained on the top of page 1-22.
If you are only connecting 1 PATA drive to the data ribbon, connect it to the last connector on the ribbon, leaving the next connector for another PATA drive.
Setting the jumper on a PATA drive. Every hard disk drive has a large white sticker on it. This sticker includes information about the drive. Things like the model number of the drive. There is also information regarding how the drive is to be set. Example: if the drive is to be the only drive in the system its jumper should be set to (Master drive only). If there is another PATA drive in the system connected to the same ribbon cable than change the jumper on the drive to, (Master with a Slave). The second PATA drive's jumper must be set to, (Slave). Connect the power cable to the PATA drive ['s]. Re-check all connectors (internally) before closing the case. Boot the system & press the Delete key on the keyboard every two seconds until the main bios menu opens. Open your manual to the top of page 2-7. Here you'll learn how to move about while in the bios. At the main menu you should see your PATA drive. Listed to the right of Primary IDE Master you should see the model number of the PATA drive listed. If not than the drive was not connected correctly. Shut down the system. Unplug the power cord from the system, open the case & re-check the data ribbon for correct orientation, solid insertion & solid insertion of power cable to drive. Connect the power cord to the system & boot to the bios again. Once the drive is listed go to the title Boot, section 2.6, page 2-27 & follow the instruction through to page 2-28.
Open your CD-ROM drive & load your windows CD, close the CD drawl.
Save bios changes & exit. The system will auto restart.
The system should start loading windows if you set the boot device correctly as shown in the manual.
If you find this too difficult to follow, suggest you ask a friend with more PC knowledge for assistance.

Good luck!
