Imation 11795 driver WindowsXP

IMATION stopped making the "LS-120" (Laser Servo) drive many years ago, when USB-interface memory-sticks became cheaper & faster. Imation did have parallel-port device-driver software for Windows 95/98/ME, but never updated them for Windows NT/2000/XP.

Instead, disassemble the case, and you will find an IDE-interface Imation LS-120 drive inside. Connect the same "smaller" 4-pin power-connector that used to connect to a 1.44 Mbyte 3.5-inch diskette, set the "master/slave" jumper, and connect an 80-pin IDE ribbon-cable, and connect the other end of the ribbon-cable to an IDE socket on the motherboard.

Need to replace hdd WD2500JS what else can I use?

As long as the interface (SATA or IDE) match you can use any kind of drive. If the interfaces don't match, then you''ll need adapters on the cables to make it match. Just pull your drive out and check the interface. IDE will have metal prongs, spikes or pins where the cable connects. SATA is a flat piece where the cable connects.

Hard Drives are universally standard equipment so any will work as long as you have the right interface so the cable can connect to it.

What ide

What is ide? IDE is a interface that is used by hard drives and cd/dvd drives. IDE will have little metal pins or prongs that stick out for the cable from the computer's motherboard to connect to.

SATA is the latest technology for the interface of hard drives and cd/dvd drives. Sata does not have the metal pins.

My model is: intel D845GVSR C45963-001 and i have dvd rom of sata can you tell my is sata cable connector located? or if not tell another formula.

SATA Ports are not available for this model Intel mainboard D845GVSR.(Manual reference) You cannot use the DVDROM with sata interface on a IDE interface, but you can use a Sata to IDE adapter to connect the Sata DVDROM on your mainboard, but not recommended. Just get a DVDROM with IDE interface.

Hope it helps.

What type interface does my sony PCV RS520use for my DVD Burner ?

Since your hard drive uses IDE, so will your CDROM.

There are normally two IDE interfaces, with each interface having a primary and secondary connection (total of four connections, 2 on each).

You hard drive would be connected to the primary connection of the IDE interface 0, and the CD/DVD Rom would be connected to the secondary connection of the IDE interface 1.

Here is a link to some manuals you can look at in PDF format.

Received Dell XPS 8100. No cd player so they sent me one. Dell hell it is. Anyway, I opened it and found MANY wires unconnected. Can you tell me what connects where? I took the cd burner out of my old one...

Your old computer had IDE interface, the new computer has SATA interface.. There is a thin connector power cord and interface cords with tge same width connectors.The existing hard drive has thes cables connected to it. Connect one power cord and one data interface cable to the cd drive. Connect the audio cable to the cd drive and the Audio IN connector on the motherboard.
Unless the motherboard has a ide connector. you can not use your old hard drive or cd. You can get a external drive encloser that can convert IDE to USB

What's the difference between AHCI and IDE in SATA?

1.IDE is an old interface standard used for storage devices while AHCI is an application programming interface for the newer SATA interface.
2.Most SATA controllers allow you to choose between AHCI and IDE among other operation modes.
3.AHCI has advanced features like NCQ and hot plugging that is not available with IDE.
4.Switching from IDE to AHCI or vice versa after the operating system is installed can lead to problems.

Therefore, in BIOS, when you choose AHCI interface your HDD behaves like a SATA one and when you choose IDE it behaves like an IDE one.

Want to connect a new samsung hard disk to computer

There are two main types of interface for disk drives in personal computers. If you give us the model numbers from the drives we can tell you for sure.

The older style drives are called IDE. They normally have a flat ribbon cable with 40/80 wires. This is probably what the 40GB uses. If your 160GB drive uses a different interface it may be a SATA interface this uses a small plug with only 3 or 4 wires. These are used in modern desktops. You can't get an adapter to simply change from one to the other. But you may find that your CD/DVD Rom uses an IDE interface and you can share the cable with two devices (if so ask here for tips on sharing a cable). You may also find an unusd IDE port on your motherboard.

If there are no IDE (40pin) interfaces to be found you can get a add on interface card that will let you run ide devices. Common cards will go into a 32 bit PCI slot on your motherboard. You will need to make sure you have a spare slot of the right type before you buy an interface card. You can get these on ebay fairly cheaply.

I have made quite a few asumptions here. Post some more information about your motherboard and the the drives you have and we can confirm things for you.

The Drive you purchased is a SATA interface, the system you have uses Parallal ATA IDE interface.

You need to get a Drive with an IDE interface for that system.

Hp f1470a ls-120 module

IMATION made SuperDisk drives with different interfaces: IDE (same as a hard-drive), parallel-port (like an old printer), and USB.

So, if the SuperDisk is "inside" your laptop, it probably has the IDE interface. It also may have another interface, to adapt from the IDE interface to the ribbon-cable interface often used inside laptops; just unscrew/remove/disconnect that "extra" interface.

What's left is an IDE interface (just like your hard-drive and CD-ROM) and a 4-pin power-connector (just like a standard floppy-drive) and a "master/slave" jumper (just like your hard-drive).

So, I would temporarily connect the SuperDisk to an IDE ribbon-cable inside your desktop, setting the master/slave jumper appropriately, and connecting the 4-pin power-connector.

Then, start Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 and it will automatically recognize the drive, without needing any drivers.

Copy each of your diskettes onto your hard-drive, and burn CD/DVDs, and/or copy the files onto a USB memory-stick.

Shutdown, and undo the "temporary" connection.
