The NC6000 has an IDE controller, therefore an IDE hard drive. The laptop was configured with 60Gb or 80 Gb hard drive.

Left side of motherboard, near the black long Ram Memory slots.
This is where the Harddrive plugs in.

Near the black long Ram Memory slots, and next to the blue Primary IDE Connector.


This is Serial ATA, or also known as SATA,

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

Uses this style of SATA data cable, and connector on motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

(NOTE* Color does NOT matter for cable connector.
Color really doesn't matter, for a SATA connector on the motherboard, either.

You are supposed to plug the Primary SATA harddrive, into the SATA 1 connector, on the motherboard.
The beauty of SATA is, that you can plug into any Ol' SATA connector on the motherboard, that you want to.

BIOS will find the harddrive with the Operating System on it, and will find all the other SATA devices plugged into the motherboard, too )

You do NOT have SATA.

How do I choose a hard drive?


It depends upon where the hard disk is to be installed, ie. in a desktop computer, in a laptop or in an USB hard drive case.

A 3 1/2 inch hard drives can be a IDE/PATA or a SATA type. Older computers use IDE/PATA hard drives and the maximum size you can install in a desktop depends upon the computer's BIOS.
SATA hard drives are generally used in later model computers and the size of the hard drive is not limited by the BIOS.

A 2 1/2 inch hard drives are used in laptops and are available in IDE/PATA and SATA types. The size and limitations of IDE/PATA hard drives also apply to laptops. The same applies to SATA hard drives.
The choice and size of hard drive depends upon your requirements and how much you want pay.
Don't forget to check BIOS for the maximum IDE/PATA hard drive size you can install in your computer.

Samsung cd-master 40e will not boot


Is this conected to the motherboard vis sata or (ide)pata?If sata did you put it in the correct port and if so is it enabled.Secondly if ide or pata is the port enabled in the bios or do you have a second device attached to it.If using ide pata one drive should be master or slave ,,, or cable select.
These are the answers why it might not work.The last answer is it died,but i think this is the least likely answer.
good luck

Dvd drive replacement


Get a PATA also called IDE drive.They are cheap and will work great in your box.You don't need the speed of SATA for a DVD drive.Even though they make SATA drives. Pata's data tramsission rareis much faster than even the fastest DVD. You have a four device potential for you IDE on your motherboard and only a two device potential for your SATA. Save the second SATA port in case you want to add a second hard drive some day

I understood your problem there are two different connectors
SATA:

And PATA:

If your computer has IDE (PATA) connectors you need an adapter like this one:

Can i Install PATA hdd on Dimension 4700


I'm sorry, but I couldn't wade through this bunch responses, so I'm going to give you my own.

You have 2 sata drives installed, already, so you cannot add an additional one w/o a bunch of wonky adapters, so use the IDE channel. You say you have an IDE rom drive. Well, there's a reason there are 3 connections on an IDE cable. One side goes into the motherboard, the other 2 into your drives. The motherboard side is the one furthest away from the center connector. I assume you have the primary connector connected to your rom drive. the 2ndary one would be on your hdd. Why people asked you why you're doing this is beyond me. It works, you'll have an extra drive, your preference. Whatever.

Let me know if you have any more inquiries.

To answer your questions from your original post directly, the other 'ide' channel is specifically for a floppy disk You CANNOT connect an IDE cable to it. And yes, you can connect an  hdd to the slave port on the ide cable.

No but you need to ensure that the drivers for your SATA controller are installed correctly (as they probably are not installed) http://uk.asus.com/products1.aspx?l1=3
