Question about Matsonic MS9327E (MS9327E+(USB)) Motherboard

1 Answer

Will the ms9327e + (usb) support a SATA drive?

I have an old seagate 40Gb drive that i'm trying to replace with a new 640 Gb Seagate drive but the hookups are different. On the seagate site it says I need SATA cables. Will they connect to the board or do i have to return the new drive?

Well it depends on what board you have.

your best bet is to look on the motherboard.

the SATA connection looks almost identical to the connection on the harddrive, so you can use that for reference.

on the harddrive you will see 2 plugs. the smaller one plugs into the motherboard and the larger one is power.

for power, power adaptors are made to convert the standard 4 pin connector to a SATA one.

Your 40GB drive is an IDE ("Integrated Drive Electronics") drive.
The largest IDE drive ever manufactured is 500GB.
However, some motherboards do not support drives larger than 320GB.

Some disk-drives (Seagate/Maxtor) come with a CD-ROM of "tools" that enable you to copy "everything" from your "old" drive to your "new" drive.

you will need to repartition the 40gb drive and set the partion active once again for the computer to be able to utilise the disc appropriately.if it has an OS on it i would recommend a full low level format and then using disc management set it active etc.

System won?t recognize SATA drive


No, the size does not matter. When you state the motherboard does not see the SATA drive are you saying the bios does not list the SATA drive? You're 750GB drive is most likely SATA 2.0 / 3.00BG transfer rate.
The P4M800-M7 does support SATA but it does not support SATA 2.0. So what you need to do to get the drive to function at a lower speed. Set to run Ultra 100/133MHz. You'll need help to do this. Try this software for Seagate. It might work for Seagate.

I haven't the time to research Seagates site for simular software.
However you can look through Seagate. Again you want to lower the SATA drive speed to Ultra. The bios will than see the SATA & so will windows.

ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard with 250GB SATA HDD and 250GB IDE HDD Problem


Hi LP,
I’ am very familiar with ASUS motherboards. I am thinking you have posted two questions or more referring to the,
ASUS K8V-MX board. When you sign into you're FixYa account you than need to click on you're profile. Within you're profiles are the questions you have posted. Click that question to add or see the expert's answer. If you need another question (about the same item) re-post within that same question. You can even copy the link to an older post & past that link into you're next question. (Than I can read you're last question & my responce).
LP you have me all mixed up. I'll answer the question you have posted above. In the future please provide you're old post so I understand better.

There is nothing wrong with IDE 250GB drive or the SATA drive.
The problem you are haveing is setting the correct settings.

The ASUS K8V-MX can support two serial ATA SATA drives. The SATA drive's can only run at 1.0 version. 1.5GB transfer speed & not SATA II, the 3.0GB speed.

How to setup the SATA drive?
Please disconnect any other drives (IDE) & a second SATA drive that may be connected to the system. Except the CDROM drive.
Using you're manual the SATA drive should be connected to SATA1 port. Page 1-24 in you're manual.
Put you're windows CD into you're CD-ROM drive & boot the PC. You will see, Press any key to boot from CD... (press any key on your keyboard). Windows will start to install. Durring installation of windows the system will restart. You will again see, Press any key to boot from CD... (DO Nothing)!
Just allow windows to conintue on its own. Windows will continue to install it's self. This will happed once again, & again do nothing. Windows will finish installing it's self.
After windows has finished, load the ASUS CD into you're CD-ROM drive & install it's driver software. Restart the PC.
You must register windows. Do so.
Than update windows through windows update service. (This will take some time to complete). (Do not install service pack 3).
If you have an IDE drive 250GB in size & you installed windows on it. You must erase the drive or it will conflict with you're new installation on the SATA drive. To do this, look on the IDE drive & you will find a large white sticker. Printed on there is instructions of how to set the drive pin. Set the drive up as a slave drive. (This is only temporary).
Power off the PC & unplug the power cord. Connect the 250 IDE drive's power cable & data cable. Plug in the power cord to the PC & turn on the PC. Windows will load. Right click once on the start button & slide up to & left click on Explorer.
Find the 250 IDE drive, it should be drive letter D or E. Right click the proper drive letter & format the drive.
( Do Not format, Local_Drive C:\ ). Once the format is complete, power down the PC by clicking on the start button & click turn off the computer. Once off, unplug the power cord. Change the pin on the 250GB IDE drive to Master with a slave. Take the 40GB drive & change it's pin so the 40GB drive is a slave.
Connect the 250GB drive to the end of the IDE data cable & connect the 40GB drive to the next connector of the same IDE data cable. Re-check all power cables & data cables for good connections before closing the case. Plug the power cord in & power up the PC. Everything should run just fine.
Setting the pin for you're IDE drive's can be very confusing. Click on the link below. This will give you an idea of how to set you're pin for a master drive, master with a slave drive. If you post the name ST****** of you're two drives I can post the correct pin locations from Seagate's web site.

Seagate 750 GB SATA HDD wont show in windows. somebody HELLLP!


Hi T0X1K66O, go back into your bios & set the RAID to IDE or SATA. Save & restart.
Is the 750 Seagate a slave? (I know it's a SATA & all SATA's are Master drives). In other words the 750 is not the drive running the OS? Most bios's the give you the option to run a RAID also give you the option to run you're SATA's as IDE. When you're system boots you will not see the screen (Press tab to setup a RAID).
You do not loose any speed or function by setting IDE mode.
I think once you set you're bios to IDE windows will see you're Seagate drive. Allow windows to format it. Also make sure you're windows is updated.
I couldn't find you're manual so I could find bios options for the RAID settings.

If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing go.
