Question about Western Digital Caviar SE WD800JD SATA Hard Drive
I have bought my first SATA hard drive and installing it in my computer. I have a SOYO SY-KT600 Dragon Plus mobo. On boot up it does not show the drive has been recognized as well as windows does not recognize the drive. I don't see any place in the bios to change something to make it recognize it. I have the drive connected to the SATA port on the drive with a SATA cable and power is through a "legacy" ATA power plug. It also appears that there is supposed to be a jumper on pins 1 and 2 that is missing on my drive. Looking for help with this issue.
Hi, A couple of ideas: 1. There are 3 versions of this motherboard: Dragon Plus, V1.0 & V2.0, perhaps your BIOS needs an update to be able to recognize the new HD. This of course would require flashing; 2. There are two variations of a WD SATA hard drive: Serial ATA amd Serial ATA II; 3. Re Jumper settings: the eight-pin jumper block is only used to enable power management on the drive. There are no master/slave settings since there is only one drive per cable; 4. If you are fresh installing Windows on it, you need to press F6 when asked by the Windows Installer and follow on-screen instructions. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.

WD 1TB sata II has jumper pins that reduce from 3 Gb/s to 1.5 Gb/s.
This fixed my problem with older M/board.
Seagate 1TB sata still isn't recognised and disables RAID.

Try the jumper on pins 5&6 for WD drives to 'slow' the data rate.
