Does this have a SATA connection for a SATA HDD

Hi I have an oldish Matsonic MS8147C motherboard. I want to upgrade the hard disk and have bought a SATA 320Gb disk. However, now not sure there is a SATA connection on the motherboard that will accept a SATA cable to the HDD. Can anyone suggest or confirm if this is the case ? Thanks

Hi there.
The board is a socket A (462) and does not support sata, you will need to but a IDE (ATA) hard drive which will be compatable for that board.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I cant find specs or a good big pic so I can see it, the sata jacks are similar in appearance to usb potrs, on the Motherboard they are usually clumped together (If there's more than one), If it doesn't have them you can get a PCI card with SATA potrs and put that in.

Upgrade CPU on Matsonic MS8147C+


Unfortunately I think the Athlon XP is a 462 pin package and the MS8147C+ has a SocketA/Socket 462 socket for the CPU. The Athlon 64 3800+ is a 940 pin package and requires a AM2 socket, so this CPU will not physically fit.

Hi i bought WD 320 gb sata /8mb hard drive - the cable ribbon on my dell 4600 does not plug into it! do i need a different cable yes


Hi,
Generally speaking, we have two types of hard disk interface. IDE (the old one with ribbon cable) and SATA (with a 1cm strip like cable).
As your new hard disk is SATA, you need a SATA cable to connect it to you PC.
Below are a few images which would help you.

Hi I want to put a new hard disk in my computer which has a ms8147C+v1.0 motherboard. Can you tell me which hard disk would be compatable - i am looking at Seagate also how much ram can i install?


Hello.
About the ram memory: it can support 3 slots of DDR SDRAM memory of 1 GB each (maximum). So, the maximum supported memory is 3 GB. And now, about the hard disk: you need to buy an IDE hard disk because SATA is not supported. So, when you go to the store to buy a new hard disk, ask for an IDE one.
Cheers!

Motherboard : ASUS P5GV-TMX Which hard disks does this motherboard support? It came with sata-I hard disk. Recently i bought a sata-II hard disk bt it is giving some problems..to be specific on windows it...


Yes, it can be causing a problem. You have 2 hard drives that are working at 2 very different speeds. The computer is having to do a translation and adjust rates of transfer between them on top of having to do the read and writes between them. Will SATA II will be backwards compatible to SATA I it won't work the other way. If you have to keep these drives, I would make the SATA II Drive the primary and SATA I drive the secondary on a different channel if possible. The SATA II drive is teh faster drive and should be your main.

How much Hard disk my motherboard D845GVSR will support.


There's not really a limit to how big a harddisk you can support. The only thing that can restrict you is the connection, because, for obvious reasons, you can't connect a SATA disk to an old IDE board, but it seems like you're aware of that.

You can just buy any SATA HDD you want!

Troubling in sata connection


  • I suppose there is a jumper(beside the power pin) on your new HDD,
  • if its true the your HDD supports 3GB/s mode but your motherboard does not .
  • So place the jumper on the HDD on 1.5GB/s combination.
then
  • Disconnect the 80 GB,
  • Connect the new HDD,
  • Boot from any bootable xp or vista or any disk tool like erd commander and try to format the new HDD.
  • Then connect the new HDD and boot from it.
Tell me what happened.
