Sata drive is not detected

Bought two sata drives neither seem to want to be detected. How do I figure out how to do this. I have run the computer in dos. Checked it with the format and it will pick up my Ide drives but not the sata. I have disconnected the Ide drives then run it again but would not find the SATA that way. ( Hitachi Ultastar ) so I went to and did not get any of them programs to find them. I then tryed them in my wife's Computer and hers has nothing but sata drives yet again Nothing. Starting to think I got to bad Drives Yes I got them from EBAY but the guy says that I need to do a low level on them but I pointed out that I need to detect them to do any thing.

SOURCE: optical drive cant recognise by the system

Your problem is that your system does not see the optical drive, simply because it was not programmed by the recovery manager to do so. When the plug was pulled, the loss of continuity caused that you have lost the driver for the cd/dvd drive. Now you need to erase everything and begin by installing the system and then the drivers. Don't feel bad because I have done the same mistake with my HP nx9420 laptop. The way I fixed it is that I called HP Tech. Support and asked for a System disk and a Drivers disk. If they ask you what happened to the ones that came from the seller, tell them that you never received any (which is most likely the truth). You are not cheating anyone. They have these disks by the million and they give them away free. You install the System disk first and you will have everything working. If I am not mistaken you will also have your optical drive working, if not it will work after all the drivers are installed. Please, keep in touch with me and when you have the disks, I can walk you through the process. For that I give you my e-mail <> 7862340692. The whole procedure is totally free. We thank you very much for considering our service...

My dard disc wont detict

When installing a new hard drive, a PC may not recognize the hard drive. Incorrect cable installations, jumper settings and BIOS settings may cause the computer to be unable to detect your hard drive. Due to the vast differences in hard drive types (IDE versus SATA) and brands, motherboard brands and types, and BIOS types and configurations, please download or acquire your motherboard and hard drive manufacturers' documentation prior to acquiring a hard drive. Make sure that the type of hard drive you plan to purchase is compatible with the motherboard.
Shut down the computer. Unplug all cables and peripheral devices. Clip the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and attach the bracelet to your wrist. Remove the computer's side panel. (Cases vary. Some will require a small Phillips screwdriver for removal and others feature screwless designs. Please see your case manual if you are unsure.) Locate the newly installed hard drive. Check that two cables are running from the hard drive to the motherboard and to the power supply. If you see only one cable or if either of the cables are not securely seated, plug in the appropriate connector(s). Leave the case's side panel off for now. Reconnect the power cable, monitor cable, and keyboard and mouse connections. Restart the computer. Enter your BIOS immediately. (Your BIOS usually alerts you to the key required to adjust settings. If your screen does not show this information or if you are unsure, consult your motherboard manual.) If it is an IDE hard drive, enter the IDE settings. The BIOS should show the hard drive. Configure it as primary or secondary, according to your computer's configuration. (If you have only one drive, set this to primary. Otherwise, set as secondary.) Save your settings, and exit the BIOS. Once you are certain that the the PC is recognizing the hard drive, replace the side panel. Detect a SATA Hard Disk If you have connected a SATA (serial ATA) hard drive to your computer but are not able to access the files on it, then your system may not be detecting the drive correctly. On either a PC or Mac computer, you can manually detect and mount a hard drive that is locally connected. Once properly detected, the drive will become available for file transfer.
Plug the SATA hard drive firmly into your PC computer and ensure that the drive is powered on. Open the Start menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon. Open the "Administrative Tools" folder and double-click on the "Computer Management" icon. Go to the "Disk Management" tool on the left side of the control panel window. This brings up a list of all drives currently connected to your computer. Right-click on the SATA drive that you want your computer to detect and choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths." Click on the "Add" button and then select the drive letter that you want to be assigned to the SATA hard drive. Click "OK" to save the settings and detect the SATA drive. b> Mac Instructions b> Plug the SATA hard drive firmly into your Mac computer and ensure that the drive is powered on. Open a new Finder window and navigate to the "Utilities" folder, which is located in the "Applications" section of the Mac hard drive. Double-click on the "Disk Utility" icon. Highlight the SATA hard drive that you want your computer to detect from the list of connected drives on the left side of the window. Click on the "Mount" button at the top of the window to have the system manually detect the SATA drive. Hope this helps.

I bought a Dell Optiplex 745 with no hard drive. I bought a second hand WD800JD SATA hard drive with no CD's and installed it. The computer does not recognize it so I cannot load an OS. Can you help?

make sure that the leads are in there correct slots

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

hope this helps

Hanging on detection of drive when installing Windows XP

Installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not a straight-forward task as Windows XP does not recognize the SATA drive. In order to install operating systems such as Windows XP on SATA drives, the latest SATA drivers are required.Download SATA drivers for the motherboard from the website and integrate them with the XP installation CD using software such as nLite. SATA drivers can also be installed as third party drivers; you will be prompted during the installation process. Without proper SATA drivers, installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not possible as SATA mode would have to be disabled in the BIOS to continue with the installation.
Installing Windows XP on a Serial ATA hard drive is not an easy task, because the system does not recognize SATA drivers at startup. Windows XP Pro SP2 fares a little better with SATA drivers, but here is what can be done in cases where the driver is not recognized.

Wd sata hard drive is not being detected by the mobo

Sounds like issues I've had in the past...

But the funny thing was that after all was said and done, the fix that I figured out what easy.

Let's see if this works for you.

Get into your motherboard's BIOS setup on bootup. Check into the first section of the BIOS labeled "Standard CMOS Settings". You should find settings for all drivers there.

You have a set of various settings such as "User" or "Auto" for each drive entry there. Set them all to Auto so that they can properly detect the drive's settings on startup.

If you use "User" it will be looking for user-defined settings for each drive channel. These don't typically work too well.

The only thing that eludes me here is this... What kind of drive is it? I'm assuming that it's an IDE drive. But it could also be a SATA drive.. Given it's size, tha'ts probably the case.

I'm not sure exactly how your BIOS is set up of course... But be dynamic and apply the principles I have described above to whatever settings you find in your board's BIOS.

You might also want to check to make sure that the jumper on the back end of the drive is set correctly, too. If it's a newer SATA drive that is capable of running at 300, then make sure to try setting it to the previous 150 speed and see if that works. It may mean that the drive's speed is set too high for the motherboard's SATA ports.

I'm more familiar with Seagate drives, though. Yours is a Western Digital. They're usually a bit different of course.

Keep us updated. :)
