Check the jumper settings on the hd one has to be a master for operating system and the rest has to be the slave drives .... sometime certain hd's may work under cable select and make sure cables are seated correctly and no bent pins jumper needs to have a snug fit use a toothpick to remove or bend pins straight..

Should the sata cable be hooked up to the cd drive or the hard drive and where can i find pictures of where the inside cables should be attached to


Hi,
One end of the Sata Cable is to be attached to the CD/DVD (Optical Drive) or Hard Disk, whereas the other end is to be attached to the motherboard. The Sata connections on the motherboard are located near the CMOS/RTC Battery as indicated below: - (Blue, White, Yellow and Black, at right-hand top corner)

Hi i have Toshiba HDD2194, i want to connect it to my PC with USB Cable, please can somebody help me to find which kind of adapter i use ?


OK just go to say, Ebay, or your local PC store, and buy a HDD/DVD, SATA/IDE - USB "Dongle" Pack, they are real inexpensive, simply use the interface that matches your HDD the "Dongle" has BOTH connectors, hook up the Power to the HDD/DVD and hook up to the PC via USB, to the PC, the PC, should "See" the device, and install a "Driver' then it should be available in My Computer, as a normal "Drive".
Example below.

Want to know whats the maximum hard drive i can put in my pc it as a bv cuba ms-7301


Generally, you can put 2 devices (hard drives or CD/DVD drives) per IDE chain and 1 device per SATA port. It appears there are 2 IDE chains and 2 SATA ports, so theoretically you could have 6 hard drives hooked up (assuming you don't use an optical drive). Four would need to be IDE, two SATA.

How do i find my hp compact ,the model # to look for the manuel for my comp, i have a hard drive i guess it's a new type and i want to add another hard drive but it's the old conection, what i can do ,,


I assume you new hard drive is a SATA hard drive and your HP only has an IDE hard drive.
To install a SATA hard drive in the HP, you will need to install a SATA controller card in your HP so the SATA hard drive can work in the HP computer. You will also need a power adapter lead for the SATA hard that converts the 4 pin power connector to a SATA power connector.
