Can i put a samsung non sata sp1604n hard drive in an hp pavilion p6310y desktop as a slave drive ?? the sp1604n is not a sata type hard drive, but the master that came with it is. the master is a western...

Unless the motherboard in your system is different from the one shown on HP's site, the answer is no, you can't install the drive. At least you can't install it without additional hardware, which I'll describe in a moment. It looks like this board only has SATA connections for drives, which is becoming more common. So there is no conventional (i.e., old-fashioned) IDE connector for the data cable used by your Samsung drive. There's no place to plug the in the drive.

What you'll need if you want to use a parallel IDE drive is an expansion card like this one. There are many similar cards; I'm just using this one as a sample. The card installs in one of the PCI-E slots on your motherboard, and it provides the IDE connection you need. In addition to the card, you'll need an 80-conductor ATA-133 IDE cable.

With SATA drives, there isn't the master/slave designation since each SATA device has a direct connection to the motherboard. With the parallel cable, you can have two devices connected, so one needs to be designated as the master and the other one as the slave. The master is the drive connected to the plug physically at the end of the cable, and the slave is the middle plug. When you install your Samsung drive, set it for "master" or "single" drive as required. Some drives have a special jumper setting when used alone, while others need to be set as master even if there is no slave drive present. The jumper settings are usually marked on the drive, or you can check at Samsung's website.

Hope this has helped. Thanks for using Fixya!

Jumper settings when used as a slave in a HP pavilion 6835

There are 3 pairs of pins:
* MA(ster)
* SL(ave)
* C(able)S(elect)

Move the jumper to connect the two 'SL' pins, if you want to use the drive as a "slave" drive.

Or, move the jumper to the 'CS' pins, and the drive will auto-configure itself.

Just need a samsung sp1604n driver

Any drivers needed will be on the samsung website, but unless you are using an old motherboard and windows xp (may need drivers loaded off a floppy drive) no drivers are needed.
If you are using Vista, your problem may lie in your motherboards bios, it may need an update

Jumper pin settings

Hold the samsung SP1203N hard drive in your left hand with the lable facing upwards (then power cable connectors will be on your right hand side and the IDE cable connector will be on your left ahnd side). There are two raws of jumper pins in between the above two connectors

Master - join the first two column of pins on the left with a vertical jumper
Slave - leave all pins free (without jumpers)
Cable Select - join the third column of pins from the left with a vertical jumper

job done !!
