HITACHI DESKSTAR 7250 320 GB HARD DRIVE

Ihave a new SATA drive but it is not running at the 3 GB/s transfer speed my system supports SATA II and I have read on Hitachi's site that you need to use the FTOOL. I have tried to use this on the floppy as it explains but when i go to boot from this disc it wont boot. So i made a normal MS boot disc, booted up in DOS and then changed disc's and run Ftool and i get the following error (stub error (2003) cant find dpmi16bi.ovl Has anyone any other idea on changing the transfer speed of the drive.

Please tell me if I can install this SSD drive in my Acer Aspire V3-771G laptop. What is the difference between SSD SATA II and III


A sata 3 SSD on a sata 2 PC will slow down slightly to sata 2 speeds, and vice versa. But this is usually acceptable since any current model SSD is much much faster than a normal hard drive so even installing a slower model SSD will be a big improvement. Its analogous to a porsche 911 and a volkswagen beetle. The 911 is faster than the beetle but both are much faster than horses.

your laptop has a normal hard drive. Most SSD's except apple SSD's are the same size and have the same connectors so 99% of the time it will work. you can see pictures of the SSD and compare it with your current hard drive

Install hitachi p7k500 full speed


Your motherboard MUST have a SATA 3.0 port. It is usually blue or look closely on the motherboard to see where the 3.0 port is located. If your motherboard doesn't have a 3.0 port your hard drive won't be any faster than a normal hard drive.

Hitachi H3D10003272S, 3GB/S or 6GB/S ?


That hard drive has a Sata II (3b/s) interface so you won't get any extra performance from a Sata III (6b/s) port, but it will still run, but it will run as Sata II (3b/s).

Any it should be 3gb not 3gB
b = bit
B = byte
byte = 8 bits

So you would think that a 3gb/s would operate at 375MB/s but manufacturers advertise everything as 10bits = 1 byte so you have to take the speed or even hard drive size and multiple by .8 to get the actual speed 375 * .8 = 300MB actual speed.

Motherboard : ASUS P5GV-TMX Which hard disks does this motherboard support? It came with sata-I hard disk. Recently i bought a sata-II hard disk bt it is giving some problems..to be specific on windows it...


Yes, it can be causing a problem. You have 2 hard drives that are working at 2 very different speeds. The computer is having to do a translation and adjust rates of transfer between them on top of having to do the read and writes between them. Will SATA II will be backwards compatible to SATA I it won't work the other way. If you have to keep these drives, I would make the SATA II Drive the primary and SATA I drive the secondary on a different channel if possible. The SATA II drive is teh faster drive and should be your main.

PCI Card for SATA I VS SATA II


There are many PCI SATA controller cards out there. Just know that the SATA will not run at the SATA II standard. This is because you're motherboard may not support the bus speed for the SATA II or SATA I. If you current motherboard does not have a SATA port built on it, than your not going to see the speed the drive is able to run. Click this link (a Google search for PCI SATA II controller cards). http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=PCI+SATA+II+controller+cards&btnG=Search

Watch out for PCI-X. This is not the same as a PCI slot.
PCI-X slots are only found on motherboards that have SATA I & SATA II slots on them. These PCI-X slots are the smaller SATA slots found inbetween PCI-Express sloted boards.
Promise controller cards make some of the best controller cards on the market.

Hard disk installation


Bummer I couldn't even find that MB on Gigabyte's site, however a more to the point question for you would be: Are you going to use a XP operating system? If yes than down load the drive's Mfg disk software. Usally you can than creat a boot disk to setup your drive. Pay attention to the jumper settings listed on the drive. If its a PATA drive = serial ATA-133/66/33 you will need to set the jumper for a master or slave or master with a slave. If its a SATA and your board supports SATA II you will need to remove the jumper to allow up 3.0gig transfer rates. If your board does not support SATA II than leave the jumper on. If your board does not support SATA I = 1.5gig tranfer rate, than you can not use this in your system.
