A sata drive doesn't need jumpers. The jumpers were only required when 2 drives used the same cable.

SOURCE: Can i Install PATA hdd on Dimension 4700

I'm sorry, but I couldn't wade through this bunch responses, so I'm going to give you my own.

You have 2 sata drives installed, already, so you cannot add an additional one w/o a bunch of wonky adapters, so use the IDE channel. You say you have an IDE rom drive. Well, there's a reason there are 3 connections on an IDE cable. One side goes into the motherboard, the other 2 into your drives. The motherboard side is the one furthest away from the center connector. I assume you have the primary connector connected to your rom drive. the 2ndary one would be on your hdd. Why people asked you why you're doing this is beyond me. It works, you'll have an extra drive, your preference. Whatever.

Let me know if you have any more inquiries.

To answer your questions from your original post directly, the other 'ide' channel is specifically for a floppy disk You CANNOT connect an IDE cable to it. And yes, you can connect an  hdd to the slave port on the ide cable.

SOURCE: extremely slow transfer speeds from IDE hard drive to Sata

Yes, I'm afraid it's some form of difficulty in sending files from the SATA data-stream to the IDE ATA drive. It may be motherboard-specific, I don't really know. However attempting to send data between SATA and ATA drives is as I described above. Sending an 18-wheeler down a two-way highway and having the truck make a U-turn to reach the opposite drive.

Sorry I can't confirm if it's motherboard specific, I'm limited in that field of knowledge.

SOURCE: Hi, will a Sata hard drive with Sata to IDE

If you have enough room for the converter and power adapter you should be fine. Note that the speed of the drive will be reduced to that of the IDE converter which will be slower than a direct SATA interface.

Good Luck

Find socket for hard drive


HP part number 5188-5473 brings up the Asus A8N-LA motherboard, made especially for HP,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00647121#N413

The rest of the number/letters do me no good.

I will elate some information based on the above, and see if it does you any good;

1) The Asus A8N-LA has connectors for two types of Harddrives;

A) IDE. Also known as PATA.

This type of Harddrive uses a flat ribbon IDE(PATA) data cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nappe.svg

Another look,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ATA_cables.jpg

(The Asus name probably won't be on it. These two IDE data cables just happen to be made by Asus )

The connectors on each end have 40 socket holes. One socket hole will be blocked off. (Or should be) ONLY 39 socket holes are used.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PATA-cable.jpg

A look at the connector on the motherboard;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ATA_on_mainboard.jpg

Looking at the motherboard illustration, look at the Bottom/Right corner. There are two IDE connectors. They are marked as IDE 1, and IDE 2.

Scrolling down a little bit to the motherboard photo, you will see IDE 1 connector is Black in color, and IDE 2 is Blue in color.

The IDE (PATA) harddrive's data cable goes to IDE 1.
Optical drive/s (CD/DVD drive) goes to IDE 2.

This is the type of power cable from the Power Supply, that goes to an IDE (PATA) harddrive,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

NOTE*
There is usually a square, or rectangle, or two bumps; used on the IDE ribbon cable connector, to line up with the connector on the motherboard, or harddrive, or optical drive.

It is called a Locating Lug.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PATA-cable.jpg

This particular IDE data cable connector, has two raised bumps, for a Locating Lug.

It lines up with a Cutout in the motherboard's connector, or the harddrive's connector, or the optical drive's connector.

IF, there is NO Locating Lug, use the faint Red stripe on the side of the IDE data cable.
The red stripe is on the same side as Number 1 wire.

Number 1 wire goes to number 1 pin.
On a harddrive, or optical drive, number 1 pin is ALWAYS closest to the power cable connection,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Looking at the photo number 1 pin is on the Right side. It is closest to where the 4-pin Peripheral power cable plugs in.

B) SATA:

Looking at the motherboard photo, the Yellow, and Blue, and Black, and White connectors; to the left of the Blue IDE connector, and Black IDE connector; are SATA connectors.

SATA 1 is Black. This is where the SATA harddrive's data cable, is supposed to plug in.

The BEAUTY of SATA though, is that you can plug the harddrive into ANY of those SATA connectors on the motherboard, and BIOS will find the harddrive. (Or any other peripheral device)

An example of a SATA data cable, and it's connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

The red SATA connector shown below the SATA cable example, is just a different style of SATA motherboard connector; than what your motherboard uses.

Note the L-shaped opening in the SATA data cable's connector.
Lines up with the L shape on the motherboard connector, or harddrive connector, or optical drive connector.

Most SATA data cable connectors, also have a Lock on them.
Sometimes it's a Lock you can easily see.

Most times, it is a small depression you depress with your thumbnail, or a little 'bulb' you depress.
Depress/unlock to plug the cable in, or remove the cable.

The 90 degree angle connector end, (As shown), plugs into the harddrive, or optical drive. The Straight connector end plugs into the motherboard.

This is an example of a SATA power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

Between it, and the SATA data cable connector, it is the larger of the two.
SATA power cable connector has 15-pins.
SATA data cable connector has 7-pins.

Also note the rectangular depression on the SATA power cable's connector. That is where you depress to unlock the connector.
The SATA power cable's connector also has an L-shaped opening.

2) IF, you are trying to hook up a laptop harddrive to this motherboard, you need to determine if the laptop harddrive is an IDE (PATA) type, or a SATA type.

How?
Easy.

There is a label on the laptop harddrive. It has the manufacturer code on it. Type the number/letters in your browser search bar, and click on the search icon. (Magnifying Glass)

Now purchase an external enclosure.

The external enclosure opens up, and the laptop harddrive goes inside, and plugs into an interface.

Close the external enclosure, and plug it's USB cable into any available, open USB port on your computer.

It will be a 2.5 external enclosure.
Harddrive's are measured across their width.

A desktop harddrive is 3.5 inches across in width.
A laptop harddive is 2.5.

Example of a 2.5 IDE (PATA) external enclosure,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1086960&CatId=2782

Example of a 2.5 SATA external enclosure,

How to connect your hard drive to your motherboard The first thing you have to...


How to connect your hard drive to your motherboard

The first thing you have to figure out is what type of hard drive you have, a PATA or a SATA drive.

PATA = Parallel ATA
This type of drive uses the older IDE connections. Most of your current motherboards still have aleast one IDE connection to support the ROM drives on the market that have not moved over to SATA connections but you can still connect a hard drive to this connection if needed. The thing to keep in mind is that you can only connect 2 IDE devices to one IDE connection on the motherboard.

Here is an example of an IDE cable. If you can see there are tabs on the cable to make sure you line up the pins properly.

05d6c7d.png
SATA = Serial Advanced Technology Attachment
This type is now the standard that most hard drives are. Also note that alot of your ROM drives are switching over to this format as well.

Here is an example of a SATA cable.

b69b870.png
In regards to power connectors If you are using a PATA drive then you will use the Molex power connector. Note some of the early SATA drives use this power connector as well.

3eadeec.png
For the SATA drives you would use the SATA power connector. Note if your power supply does not have this connection you can get an adapter that goes from a Molex connection to the SATA connector.


e8164a1.png
Next you will need to find the connectors for the hard drive on your motherboard. Below if pictures of the 2 connection types.

Uses this style of SATA data cable, and connector on motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

(NOTE* Color does NOT matter for cable connector.
Color really doesn't matter, for a SATA connector on the motherboard, either.

You are supposed to plug the Primary SATA harddrive, into the SATA 1 connector, on the motherboard.
The beauty of SATA is, that you can plug into any Ol' SATA connector on the motherboard, that you want to.

BIOS will find the harddrive with the Operating System on it, and will find all the other SATA devices plugged into the motherboard, too )

You do NOT have SATA.

How do i install a wdeads hard drive? where is the power supply (4pin Molex)?


I'LL TELL YOU UPFRONT i HAVE ONLY INSTALLED SATA ON A NEW SYSTEM SO MY ANSWER MAY NOT BE CORRECT IN ALL SITUATIONS
Question is vague. Are you replacing a drive or building a new system? SATA drives have a dedicated plug on the Mother Board. Of course you already know you can't replace an IDE with a SATA without an adapter (Ebay has them for about $8) or the Bios is incompatible. The power is on the Motherboard and does not have a connector from the power supply like an IDE has.

Can i use PATA hdd for this motherboard?


You could connect a PATA HDD to this using the IDE connector, which then means that you would need to either slave your optical drive on the same channel, or obtain a sata optical drive.
The other ( not recommended) solution is to buy an IDE / SATA converter and run the hard drive from a SATA port. I've never had any sucess with these adaptors

How do i convert my hard drive for my lap top they have different plug ins


Was your old hard drive a 44 pin IDE drive (PATA)? Then you need a 7 pin SATA to 44 pin IDE converter module. Unfortunately, I can't suggest any - most take up enough space that they can't be fit into a laptop case behind the hard drive. Some connect to the IDE cable; others connect to the IDE port on the motherboard. They are more useful for the small format desktop cases (home theater PC).

I wish that I could be of more help. 2.5" IDE drive are still available; this might be a more effective solution than finding an adapter that will fit inside the laptop.

Which hard disc drive is better for pc sata or pata.


hi SATA in my opinion is better, one for air circulation also speed, and the modern motherboards can have from 2 to 6+ SATA ports, which is better than just having 2 ports for 4 items, so i would go for a SATA any day...hope that helps

I need to hook up a CD drive to my computer. I have a P5GC MX/133 mother board, two 256 gig hard drives and 3 1/2 disk drive. I would preferr not to diconnect any of the ubove


Hi kbrotzel,

You didn't indicate if your Hard drive is a SATA or PATA. So, I'm going to assume the problem your having is that the drive is a PATA, and your trying to install another PATA drive, when the board only comes with one IDE slot for PATA style drives. What you need to do is to exchange the CD ROM drive for a SATA drive, so you can put it in one fo the SATA ports. If they are both SATA, then just plug it into one of the SATA ports.

Good Luck

Putting the cable in the right spot


Are you trying to find out for your power supply cables or your data/motherboard cables? There are a lot of different kinds of connectors, so make sure you have the right one plugged in the right way. Here are pictures of both:
Your computer may use both the older and newer style plugs and cables.

IF YOU HAVE THIS KIND OF CONNECTOR(OLDER) FOR YOUR HARD DRIVE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT THE HARD DRIVE SHOULD BE PLUGGED IN TO YOUR PRIMARY IDE(PATA) PLUG ON THE MOTHERBOARD (IT WILL BE BLUE, RED OR A COLOR DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS). ALSO, SOMETIMES THEY HAVE A NOTCH, SO MAKE SURE THEY ARE IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. THE PATA (IDE)HARD DRIVE CONNECTOR IS THE GREEN ONE. HARD DRIVES AND DISK DRIVES ARE 40 PIN AND FLOPPY DRIVES ARE 34 PIN(THE BLACK ONE).

pata.jpg HERE'S WHAT THE CABLE LOOKS LIKE:
ide_cable2.jpg HERE'S A PICTURE OF HOW TO PLUG TWO PATA DEVICES IN AT ONCE. IF YOU HAVE ONLY ONE DEVICE LIKE THIS, JUST PLUG THE ONE END INTO THE MOTHERBOARD AND THE OTHER END INTO THE DRIVE, LEAVING THE MIDDLE ONE UNPLUGGED.

A PATA DEVICE (AND SOME SATA DEVICES) USE A POWER CABLE WITH FOUR PINS AND LOOKS LIKE THIS:

HERE'S WHAT THE NEWER SATA PLUGS AND CABLES LOOK LIKE. THE CABLE ON THE RIGHT IS FOR POWER AND THE ONE ON THE LEFT IS FOR DATA.(THIS CAN APPLY TO HARD DRIVES OR DISK DRIVES)

Where to connect what on motherboard


Very generic questions so lets see if i can answer as best as i can. hard drives and dvd are very similar principles (see below)

hard drives comes in SATA or PATA. If its a SATA then there should be small red connectors that you should plug the HD in on the motherboard while PATA or IDE drivers should have white connectors. They are wider in width of the cable containing about 24 pins. The motherboard would also call out SATA1,SATA2 etc so you know its the SATA plug. Likewise for IDE drives.

Regarding power switches, on most motherboards there should be a set of pins at one corner of the board with tiny little letters pwr next to it. You will need to connect power switch cable from the case to the motherboard.

I highly recommend you read the manual that comes with the motherboard to see where it is located.

good luck
