Kept trying Asus for your board details but their site was down,and also need to know socket type, but you may need to upgrade your bios to support large drives. You can find the motherboard support site here:-

    Help me remove DVD burner for replacement on my Sony PCV-RS720G. Get screws out but something keeps hanging it up and I can't find what it is.

    Make sure to remove the power and data cables from the back of the drive.
    Sometimes there is a lever or catch of some sort that releases the drive.

    Good luck!

    Sony Vaio PCV-RS720G not recognizing new Seagate Hard Drive. When I first installed the drive with XP OS running, the pc recognized and formated the drive. Since then the original drive that I was going to...

    This should be a quick fix. How old is the machine you are trying to update? Do you know if the jumpers on the drive are in order? Is it a SATA or ATA drive? Did a CD or Disk come with your drive? Check jumpers on your old drive and make sure the jumpers on the new drive are similar ( master, slave, cs ). Usually leaving on Master is best. Is anything else on this line, like a CD or DVD? I think you'll get it from here.

    Bigger hard drive

    I'm not sure if the motherboard supports SATA drives, so your best bet is getting any IDE (ATA) hard drive. It's up to you which kind you want. I've always been partial to Western Digital and Seagate.

    If you are running Windows XP then you shouldn't have a problem with having a larger hard drive, I know Windows 2000 had some issues with them that required registery editing.

    Failing install of PCI SATA Drive

    You need to load the SATA Controller driver for the XP install to access the HDD.

    The driver will need to be downloaded and extracted to a floppy diskette, then loaded during the XP install.

    If your system doesn't have a floppy drive, you'll either need a USB floppy drive or create a slipstreamed XP CD with the driver added to the CD.

    Adding a IDE hard drive

    It appears that your system has one ide controller for the optical drives, and one sata controller for the hard disk(s).

    I recommend installing another SATA drive, the controller in your system is SATA150, so don't spend any extra for a SATA II (300) interface, though if you find a good deal on one, there's no harm in using it, they're backwards compatible to SATA I.  I've been seeing 500gig SATA drives on sale for around 100$.
