Dell inspiron 3847


Dell has not published the procedures for installing an additional SATA hard drive, the Inspiron 3847 has a second 3.5" bay, for the second hard drive next to the primary hard drive, there should be a set of rails located in the bay, two 6-32X1/4, phillips head screws are needed, to attach the rails.
The procedures on pages 26 to 28 of the owners manual should give you an idea of what is required for the installation.
http://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products-Infodev/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_inspiron_desktop/inspiron-3847-desktop_Owner%27s%20Manual_en-us.pdf
You will need a SATA data cable there should be a spare SATA power connector inside the case.

After installing the drive enter the system setup and check that the hard drive is 'enabled' [on] and recognized.
For Windows to recognize the second hard drive, it must be partitioned and formatted.

Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Storage, Disk Management, right click new drive, select format, then you can assign a drive letter.

I want to replace usb


Most USB modules are not swapable. You're better off using ports elsewhere and using an external hub.

I see no evidence of a place in which to insert a cd to copy/burn in my new inspiron 580


According to dells, admittedly unhelpful store. The optical drive is an optional extra... Unfortunately this isn't of much use to you, if there's really no drive in the machine you'll ahve to either try and return it, or purchase one.

If you decided to purchase one you could go for an internal or external drive. An internal one would be slightly cheaper, however you'd have to install it yourself.

There are some pretty cheap options on ebuyer.

What personal media drive will fit the HP m 1190n media bay. Will any fit or are they part number specific? Thank you


Not sure what you mean by personal media player.

1) If its an Ipod or any MP3 player, you should be able to connect any via a USB cable, or directly plugged in.

2) if you mean CD or DVD drive/player like the one that came with it, they're generic, any with the correct interface (IDE or SATA) Though I think SATA in this case.

Here's a URL with the full specification of your system to help:-

If you mean the "personal media bay" listed here, I think were back to a generice CD/DVD drive.

I have a acer aspire t180 desktop with a 250gb hitachi scsi (ide) hd. I would like to know which hard drives are compatible so that I can exchange it. thanks


It's a SATA harddrive, not SCSI.

Serial ATA

Acer Support > Aspire T180 > Specifications >

http://www.acersupport.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireT180/AspireT180sp2.shtml

Will use up to a 400GB SATA harddrive according to Acer.

IDE stands for Integrated Drive Electronics.
Another name is PATA.
Parallel ATA
Used to distinguish between IDE and SATA.

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Drive_Electronics

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCSI

Exchange it?
Your harddrive has the Operating System on it.
A new harddrive will not have an O/S on it.
(Windows XP is an example of an O/S)

It would be much easier to install the harddrive you wish into an external enclosure, and plug the external enclosure's USB cable into your T180.

One example of a desktop size harddrive SATA external enclosure,
(3.5 inch SATA external enclosure.
3 and 1/2 inches across in width, for a desktop harddrive.
Laptop HD's are 2.5)

Bought internal harddrive and don't know where 7-pin SATA port is on motherboard, or Sata power connector is from PC.


hi, sorry to tell you this but that model of dell desktop does not have sata ports or sata power connectors and has no spare drive bays to mount the hard drive either , you would be best to try and return the drive and purchase an external hard drive and connect it to your PC via the usb socket .
Hope this helps

Sata cable connection


There are no internal connectors for SATA devices in a Dell Dimension 2400, only IDE. If you have SATA drives that you really want to use, I suggest purchasing an external drive case/dock that converts SATA to usb 2.0. On the other hand, if you are referring to the SATA power connector from a new power supply, you don't need to connect this to anything. If I misunderstood your question, please explain it a little more to me.

SATA hard disk size


Your Motherboard is SATA 1.0 - If you select a newer 2.0 drive you will have to place the 1.5gb jumper on the drive to be visible to the bios and operate at 1.5 instead of 3.0 gbs - http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=searchresult&keywords=ms-7043&table=download
this is the link to the manual and drivers for your mobo
The other option is to purchase an updated SATA 2.0 controller card and then you can support all the new size HD's - here is the link to one such card for $29.99 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2254079&CatId=1455 - if you are not ready to update the mobo, then this is a great solutions
