SATA? I just got a new SATA Hard disk and I'm having problems with the whole SATA thing..... I ordered a cable seperately to connect the drive to the modem but I have no experience with using SATA at all. They have now both arrived but I have no idea how to connect them to the P4P800-E board that I currently have and I have lost the manual for the motherboard aswell.

Be sure sata is enabled on the bios, install sata drive driver, this is for your computer to detect a sata drive. connect the drive using sata cable to your board.

Dont understand the connect the drive to the modem?; do you mean the motherboard? if so you can download the manual from the link below. It's just a case of connecting the cable to the back of the hardrive, no jumpers required and connect other end to motherboard sata connector and installing the sata raid drivers when prompted before loading the windows system files. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

Hi i bought WD 320 gb sata /8mb hard drive - the cable ribbon on my dell 4600 does not plug into it! do i need a different cable yes


Hi,
Generally speaking, we have two types of hard disk interface. IDE (the old one with ribbon cable) and SATA (with a 1cm strip like cable).
As your new hard disk is SATA, you need a SATA cable to connect it to you PC.
Below are a few images which would help you.

How to install sata harddisk


With Serial ATA technology quickly replaince IDE/ATA as the new standard in hard disks, more and more computer users will need to know how to install SATA hard drives. The process of installing a SATA hard drive is similar to installing an IDE hard drive, except a bit simpler. Follow the directions in this article to learn how to install a new SATA hard drive.

1.Detemine whether or not your hard drive supports SATA. SATA technology was not introduced into the market until after 2002, so any consumer PC before that will not support a SATA hard drive. To find out whether or not a SATA hard drive can be installed into your motherboard, you can review the manual that came with your computer, or you can contact your computer's manufacturer. If you have already purchased a SATA hard drive, but have your motherboard does not support SATA technology, you will not be able to use your new hard disk.

2.Power down your computer and remove any peripherals or connections. Ground yourself either by wearing an anti-static wrist strap, or by touching a piece of unpainted metal. Remove your computer's case.

3.Locate your hard drive bay. Your hard drive bay should be located beneath your CD/DVD drive.

4.Locate the SATA data cables on your motherboard. Review the image to the left to get an idea of how your SATA slots may look (not all motherboards look the same). The small, red connections on the bottom-left of the motherboard are your SATA connections.


5.Take your SATA data cables (the red, smaller cable pictured left) and plug the one end into the motherboard. Insert the data cable into the lowest numbered slot (i.e. 0, 1).

6.Next, you will want to locate your computer's power cable. Some computers will already have a SATA-compatible power cable available, but others may not. If your computer does not have a SATA-compatible power cable, you will need to buy an adapter. As in the picture above, it will have one white end and one black end. Plug the white end of the adapter into the white end of the power cable in your computer. It should look identical to the one in the picture.

7.Connect the data and power cables to the back of your hard drive. The larger cable goes in the larger slot, whereas the smaller cable goes in the smaller slot. If they do not fit at first, simply turn them around and try again.

8.Slide your hard drive into the drive bay. You will want to make sure that the part of your hard drive with the connections on the back is facing outwards. Then, taking a screwdriver, line up the holes in the bay with the holes in your hard drive and screw the SATA hard disk into place.

9.Power on the computer. If you have installed two SATA drives, unlike with IDE, you should not have to designate them as master or slave (both will be independent drives). If your computer is not reading your new hard drive, power down the computer and check all connections, making sure they are secure.

Hi, I want to know how to install the WD10EARS-00Y5B1 drivers? Okay, the problem is, that my computer doesn't recognise my SATA Hard Disk. I have Windows 7 Home Premium, and another SATA Hard Drive. I...


there are no drivers required for a hard drive.
Windows 7 should automatically detect the new hard drive and it should show up in disk management to format or prompt you to format.
Check your cable connections again.
Otherwise your new hard drive may be DOA. Return it to the store that you purchased from.

I have sata dvd writer.when i connect it my computer does not boot.does intel D102ggc2 supports sata dvd writer?


You're Intel motherboard does support up to 4 SATA hard disk drives including SATA CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive, reader/writers. This MB also includes two serial ATA IDE ports.
The most likely reason you're system is not booting is because all SATA ports are all seen as Master drives. By connecting the SATA DVD-ROM drive the bios auto configured the SATA ports.
You'll need to enter the bios when you're system boots-up. Press the F2 key on you're keyboard right after hearing a single beep. You will than enter the bios main menu. Listed at the main menu are devices connect to the motherboard. (Instruction on how to move around in the bios is listed at the bottom of the screen). Mainly, the hard disk drive or (drives) and the SATA DVD writer. You'll need to open the Boot tab. Look for boot order. You want the boot order set like so;
First boot device: [Floppy disk] drive; if one is connected.
Second Boot device: [Primary Hard Disk] drive.
(The drive with windows installed on it). (This drive may be ATA IDE or SATA; you did not provide that information).
Third Boot device: [DVD-Rom] drive. Save and exit the bios. The system will auto restart.
You're windows operating system should load correctly after the auto re-start.
The SATA data cable and the SATA power cable should be checked for good connection. It only takes a little bump to make either loose.
Here is the link to Intel for you're motherboard;

Good luck!

Dell Dimension 2400 with secondary SATA hard drive keeps crashing


generally all computers can handle a secondary hard drive. i myself am a dell tech. why not try to increase the wattage output of your power supply from the present 200 or 250 watts to at least 300 or 350 watts to give enough provisions for additional devices that will be connected to your computer. normally a hard drive will get burned or fried because of a loose power cable connection. data cable will never fry your hard drive. try running the hard drive diagnostics if it passes then it should work well. try also using chkdsk /r in the command prompt to fix your hard drive if the damage is not that extensive.

Sata, ide


Update: SATA II drives do have jumpers to make them backwards compatible with 1.5 Gb/s (SATA II drives are 3.0 Gb/s). So if your system is older and can only handle SATA (first Gen) then you have to add a jumper (Seagate has the jumper setting on the drive but sometimes supplies no jumper i.e. you have to have your own).
