I have a Dell computer, Can I use the Sony dru-530A with it?


Hi ajwolf76,

 

 

Yes, you may install a Sony DRU530A 8X DVD+RW/-RW to your Dell Computer.

Interface is EIDE, I'm very sure it has an EIDE cable with the package.

Enjoy your new DVD Burner!

 

Hope this helps you a lot.

 

Thank you for using FixYa!

Ive built my first pc and all went well until the message no hard drive detected comes on all parts are new so any help would be great in fixing this thanks dave


Verify that the hard disk is connected on both data and power cables and is receiving power (it hums at startup); also that the proper EIDE or SATA slot on the motherboard is used, and properly jumpered (e.g. a SATA 2 disk on a SATA 1 configured port is likely to malfunction).

Check that the BIOS is configured to autodetect the hard disk type, and is using the appropriate adapter (EIDE or SATA port), without RAID options or such.

In a pinch, try also ignoring the motherboard labels (e.g., plug the hard disk on the fourth SATA port instead of the first -- the mobo numbering is not always the "logical" one, even if it usually should be.

IDE Ports not working on ASUS P5LD2-VM Mobo


Good Day sir, hi, Have you tried to enable the IDE on BIOS setup. If the Bios setup did not solve the IDE problem, check the IDE port of the HARD drive, check if there are bent pins.
If still wont work, you can buy a PCI to IDE/SATA card, this is an expansion card in PCI format with IDE and SATA port.We use this card incase the IDE or SATA on the motherboard gets bad. Connect it on the available PCI slot. Then connect the IDE cable of the Hard disk to this card. Thats it.

Maxtor Internal EIDE hard drive dip switch settings.


I assume you have two IDE controllers? IDE1 and IDE2, I'll try to help, the primary HD needs to have the pin set to primary and the secondary set to slave, if you're running both of these drives off of the same ribbon cable. You may have to go into your BIOS settings and check to make sure the Primary HD is the WD drive.

Windows XP SP2, Intel DG965WH mobo. Two SATA hard drives, two EIDE hard drives (WD200EB). Suddenly one day, without warning, the two EIDE drives just disappeared from the Hard Disk Drive list and files...


the problem sounds like you either lost the IDE channels on the MOBO or the chipset was updated with corrupt files.

run everest home and see if there are current updates for the northbridge chipset. if you have 2 ide channels on the board switch the primary and secondary ribbons and see if the hard drives are there. if your cdrom's are ide and after switching ribbon cables they disappear and the hard drives reappear your mobo lost an ide channel, you would need to replace the board.

Sata as boot and install eide drive as d:or e:


You can slave the EIDE hard drive off of the CD Drive, as long has it is also EIDE. There should be a flat grey ribbon cable plugged into the back of your CD Drive. That IDE ribbon cable should have 2 connectors on it, one of them should be plugged into the CD Drive.

If it does not have 2 connectors, then go buy a new IDE ribbon cable that has 2 connectors, they are cheap. Or ask a friend, he/she might have extra, I always do.

Make sure you have the jumper settings correct on both drives. One will be the master, the other should be the slave. Or set both to "select select" and let the computer decide. The jumper is a little black jumper that connects 2 pins together on back of the drive. This tells the drive if it is a master, slave or cable select.

There should be a sticker diagram on each drive denoting the correct pin-jumper setting.

One other thing, when you hook up 2 drives to 1 IDE cable, both drives share the bandwidth. If you are using one of the drives, don't try to use the other, major performance slow-down.

Also, you don't need to slave the drive. You can get a Hard drive enclosure and make the drive an external drive connected by USB. They are also cheap, but make sure the hard drive has a partition and is formatted before installing it in the enclosure.

1st and 2d eide conector on mobo


Hi, Does not really matter whether slave via jumper or cable select on the secondary IDE. Your mb will boot to whatever HD you set it at in the BIOS/CMOS as the first boot device. The 3rd drive will be recognized as secondary whatever and if your CMOS/BIOS is set right it will boot from the primary master on IDE1. Good luck and kind regards.
