I just bought and Avertech 3.5 SATA HDD and need to install it on my OSX... it came with no instructions. It says it is plug and play. I have it plugged into power, and connected to a usb port. when i turn it on the disc utility opens and it ask for a selection. It did come with a tiny cd, but i don't think it is too small to put into my osx... I'm stuck!

I'm running windows 7 32bit and want to install a SATA port expander but there are no instructions on doing it without makeing the a RAID aray.


You should have posted the model of what you want this on, usually the reason is to add RAID so its faster.

You could use USB 3.0 ports for your drives and get the same speed you will get from Sata 2 using HDD.

Try just plugging it in, run windows update, then go to ADMIN tools, computer MGNT, storage, disk MGT, see if you can see the added storage, then just Look for the unpartitioned HDD usually represented by a black header
right click it and select format.
on the following instructions

Connecting sata hdd on 845ge


Directly you can't, the chipset on that motherboard doesn't support SATA. You will have to buy a PCI SATA card and plug the disk in it.

Sata drivers


Had that problem myself today and got it somewhat resolved. You need to install storage controllers on your system. These can be found on the CD provided woth your motherboard or the manufacturer's website.

No but you need to ensure that the drivers for your SATA controller are installed correctly (as they probably are not installed) http://uk.asus.com/products1.aspx?l1=3
