Question about MSI K8MM-V Motherboard
I have been doing a bit of research to replace my failed 40gb SP0411C, the only viable option is the 80gb Seagate 7200.10, still available in the market. I suppose, this drive supports the revised 300mbps spec which is not supported by VT8237. However, most controllers allow forward compatibility (autonegotiation), it seems that this particular southbridge lacks such support (trusted source: wikipedia). However, it hasnt been clearly stated whether jumper settings (150mbps limit) can help overcome this problem. Post this discovery I have searched for some other sources on internet, but have reached ambiguous conclusions, some forums report that even jumper settings were of no help, and others, such as these confirm that jumpers were a success. I am basically clueless and need some confirmation from some expert. Please help.
MB: K8MM V, MANU: MSI.
Since you are only running one drive you can do the following:
1) Go to Newegg.com and go to hard drives. Look for the Western Digital WD800JD. This has a jumper that you can set on the hard drive to force it back to sata 150. You can also read customer reviews to learn of other's experiences.
2) Instead of replacing with sata you can go IDE. This is your second option if you are uncomfortable with sata.
Both hard drives are available from Newegg. I've purchased from them many times and I have nothing but positive feelings about the company.
