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