Trying to connect a second DVD burner with the old style cable. I already have a second HD on the cable. The system will recongnize one or the other device....but not both at the same time. Why? Any ideas?


Hi Daniel
The problem is that you will have to configure one of the drives as Master and the other one as Slave .
Check both the DVD and the hard drive .Near the IDE cable it should be another connector where you can see these letters on the DVD`s case Ma Sl and Cs .It is a 3 X 2 pins connector .)
The hard drive should have these letters written on the label .
Set Hard drive as Master ( usually it is Master ) and set your DVD as Slave .Put the HDD on the first IDE connector on the cable and the DVD on the second

How can I use a SATA HDD in a 7NF-RZ motherboard? What cables/adapters are required?


Hey there. To install SATA devices on any motherboard follow these steps:
1- Make sure your Motherboard supports SATA, a 7NF-RZ works fine.

2- Install the HDD on your case, usually you have to screw it in or if you have a newer case you can lock it in place with a latch.(The SATA slots on a case are usually above the optical drive slots).

3-If you have another HDD already installed, and you don't want the new HDD to have system files, make sure it's designation is set to Slave. To do this, remove the jumper on the HDD pins(a white plastic connector) with tweezers, and, according to your HDD specifications, move it up or down to Slave designation.

4-Use a SATA cable from your Power Supply and connect it to the HDD, then, use a SATA adaptor cable which should have come with your HDD and connect it to the HDD, then to your Motherboard SATA adaptor(these vary from motherboard to another, so use your Manual to specify where it is).

5-Boot up your computer, and enter BIOS. Usually press either F2,F5,F12 or Esc. After that go to Auto-Detect drivers. When you're done, Save & Exit.

You should have successfully installed your new HDD!

Hi . I have trouble with Dell optiplex GX280 . In the PATA I have two devices . DVD and HD . Both set with jumper . DVD as Slave and HDD as Master ....But the install os cannot detect HDD . where is...


I don't know where the trouble is without more information.
Some tips/information I will list, however,

1) The master harddrive that came with the computer, and has the operating system on it, is a SATA unit.

Therefore any harddrive installed along with it has to be installed as a Slave drive.

BIOS will look for the harddrive with the operating system on it. This harddrive has to be set as a Master drive. (Primary Drive in BIOS)

Installing a harddrive that is a PATA (IDE) unit, AND a PATA optical drive on the same flat ribbon cable, has to be done accordingly;

A) It depends on what flat ribbon cable you have.
There is a 40 wire cable with a 40 pin connector. (39 actually. One socket hole is not used)

There is an 80 wire cable with a 40 pin connector. (39 actually)

2) Proper method of using jumpers on an IDE (PATA) harddrive, and connecting the flat ribbon cable,

Hai sir iam using in intel d945gcnl desktop is propleam (a bootable device has not been detected)wihch propleam in intel board


Do you have multiple hard drives in your system. In the BIOS select the first boot device and select the 2nd HDD as first boot device.

vinayak_nair_24.jpg

to get into the bios press del and then use cursor keys to highlight boot tab and then select first boot device as HDD. Use the hard drive boot priority menu to select appropriate HDD as first device to boot.This option is only valid if you have two or more hdd's else your OS is corrupt and you will have to reinstall windows. Even check if all the cables to your HDD are tight, you will have to open up the system , if the system was moved around the cables might have become loose and just have to pushed in well.

Asus P5KPL SE & Sata, Bios "Not Detected Problem"..


The Asus bios won't show SATA devices.
However if you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (or newer operating system then the devices should be detected. If this is not happening then enter the bios -- Storage Configuration -- Configuration Enhanced and set the IDE devices to compatible. This allows all drives to be "seen" and you should then be able to load an OS.

PC won't boot if SATA drive connected, drive works fine if plugged afterward


Try Hirens Boot CD. It has a lot of programs on it to detect format etc.
I think your hard drive has a missing or corrupt MBR and it needs to be replaced.
When I have had a hard dive not recognized I hve used Super Fdisk to format and reset hard drive.

SATA configuration for MSI P965 Neo --- JMicron hell!


Hi,
Once you have loaded your main board drivers,configuration should be pretty much automatic.Personnally,I have my dvd drive on the standard IDE ribbon cable header,and 2 SATA HDD.One on each SATA header.After loading The mainboard Drivers,Windows did the rest.I haven't found any need to mess around with any BIOS settings at all.
I currently am using a Biostar P4M900 board,but I have dealt with MSI before,and they are pretty much the same deal.
