    What OS are you running?

    Have you tried different IDE cables?

    If the hard drives are different manufactors did you look up the pin configurations as per the maker?

    Try to isolate the problem and just use one hard drive at a time and use the different pin configurations. If you give me the mainboard infomation and hard drive information I may be able to asist you more.

Check the IDE cable, Jumpers (Master/slave), power connector/cables, this will fix your problem if there's no internal damage on the motherboard. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.

I don't understand... are you able to POST or not?
Are you sure that both DVD drives that are on the secondary IDE channel are configured as MASTER and SLAVE by using the pins on the back of the drives?

Intel DG31PR, How many HHDs can i add?


The board has 4 SATA ports and one IDE port. Therefore, assuming that you also want to connect a CD/DVD drive, you should be able to add another two SATA HDDs. You may need to get a SATA power adapter (splitter) cable, if no no more unused SATA power cables are available.
Also make sure that your power supply is not already "at the limit"...

IDE Ports not working on ASUS P5LD2-VM Mobo


Good Day sir, hi, Have you tried to enable the IDE on BIOS setup. If the Bios setup did not solve the IDE problem, check the IDE port of the HARD drive, check if there are bent pins.
If still wont work, you can buy a PCI to IDE/SATA card, this is an expansion card in PCI format with IDE and SATA port.We use this card incase the IDE or SATA on the motherboard gets bad. Connect it on the available PCI slot. Then connect the IDE cable of the Hard disk to this card. Thats it.

945GCT-M/1333 recognize Primary IDE Master as IDE 3 Master


Start by simplifying the configuration. Disconnect the second IDE cable from the motherboard and disconnect the power to the DVD drive. Disconnect the SATA device. On the #1 IDE cable, connect the master drive to the connection on the end of the cable. Connect the Slave drive to the middle connection on the cable. Start the computer and press the key indicated to enter setup. Verify that drives are properly indentified as master and slave. If they are, shutdown the computer. Now add the IDE DVD drive to the end connection on IDE cable #2. It should be set as a Master drive. Start the PC again and go into setupand verify that the DVD is IDE #2 Master. Shut down the PC. Add the SATA device and start eh PC again. Go into Setup to verify that all of the drives are properly identifed. Restart the computer and let it boot into Windows. Open Windows Explorer to view the drive settings. If the drives are all present, but the letters are not what you want, click on START and then right click on MY COMPUTER and then left click on MANAGE. Under Storage click on DISK MANAGEMEN. The drives will all be displayed with their assisgned letters. If you need to change a drive letter, right click on the drive you want to change and select 'Change drive letter . . .'. Change it to a hight letter in the alphabet, then change the dive you want in the original postion to the now vacant letter. Finally change the original drive to the first available letter. Example: C:=IDE M1 D: E:=IDE S1 Change D: to H: then E: to D: and finally H: to E: they drives would then be: C:=IDE M1 D:=IDE S1 E:=IDE M2(DVD). Restart the PC and the drive should come up as you want them to be labled.

Good luck and please let me know how it works ouot for you.

Can I transfer data from 250GB IDE HDD to a SATA II 500GB HDD


Yes you can. You may have to go in BIOS or and select your SATA as the first drive to boot off of though, else it might try to boot off the old IDE. But once you're in windows, it will appear as another drive in my computer.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Asus motherboard M2N-E will not power up


It could be a memory card too. I would start by pulling the memory cards and see what happens.

Is there a connection on the motherboard for your hard drive?
