Question about Generic Memory (RXD639) Serial ATA Controller
I bought a converter to be able to download Ghost 14 backup of my c drive on my Vista SATA computer to an IDE hard drive to use on another older computer. The adapter has 2 cables - one for data to plug into the Sata machine mother board and a power cable with only 2 wires to plug into a spare female power connecter in the computer. Do I need to also plug the IDE hard drive into a spare female power connector on the Sata machine?
I tried to use the converter on a 80Gb IDE hard drive but don't know how to set the master/slave jumper. I couldn't find the IDE drive in my BIOS. No instructions came with the converter and I would appreciate some help!
I have successfully connected a older. 20 GB drive to a computer with a 2. sata connection on the mother board.
Buy trial and error I found that connecting a power cable to the converter and the hard drive was the only way to get the Bios To recognize the drive.
Done sucessfuly with a 40GB drive as well, Set drive to master.
