You need to add a controller card for SATA. These are not expensive. One you might consider is this:

Vantec UGT-ST200 Serial ATA PCI Host Card

It costs about $25, and is available many places, including Tiger Direct, Fry's Electronics, and others. Here is a link to one on the Fry's website. Shop around, you might even find it somewhere else cheaper:

Once you install the card in an empty PCI slot, you install a new SATA hard drive, and cable it to it. It should work fine with your existing PATA drive(s).

Cheers

Will Intel DG31PR supports SATA-2 or SATA-3 format internal drives?


The Intel DG31PR motherboard uses an Intel G31 motherboard chipset;

A) Intel 82G31 - Northbridge chip
B) Intel 82801GB (ICH7) - Southbridge chip

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Scroll down to the subheading - G31 in the left column.

The Southbridge chip controls the SATA bus.
The SATA bus uses SATA technology, that operates UP TO 3Gbps.
3 Gigabits per second.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The SATA 3.0 technology operates at 6Gbps.
6 Gigabits per second.


SATA revisions were made to be both Backward Compatible, and Forward Compatible.

However it depends on the manufacturer of the harddrive, as to how to switch it,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SATA#SATA_1.5_Gbit.2Fs_and_SATA_3_Gbit.2Fs

The answer is yes.
You will not get the full capability of the SATA 3.0 technology, however.
The harddrive will be operating at the SATA 1.5 technology.

Secondary IDE channel


the motherboard you have can only support 4 SATA Drives. if you want to use your IDE drives, you have 3 options: 1) buy a SATA to IDE Converter which is around $20-$25. (if you selected this, you can fix the drives into the internal of the pc). 2) buy USB to IDE converter $10-$15. (if you want to fix the drive inside the pc, remove one PCI slot casing cover at the back of the computer casing and use the USB slot at the back of PC). Hope this helps. Good Day!

Need to add SATA controller driver


Hi voyager99,
You can download the driver, (VIA 8237 SATA/RAID driver) from PC Chips but I doupt it will help.
If your bios did no see the 250GB drive than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be fixed.
http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=305&DetailName=Driver&MenuID=1&LanID=0
Running the SATA/RAID driver will most likely not help the bios see your drive.
Buying a PCI serial SATA controller card may allow your SATA drive run but it will run at the PCI bus speed. A decent controll card may cost as much as a new board that will run your current devices.

Good luck!
Mike
