Seagate Barracuda and Samsung SV0411N Master-Slave Combination

Hi Sir,
Previously I was using 40GB Samsung SV0411N 40 GB Harddrive for my PC. I purchased 160GB Barracuda ST3160215A. Now my OS WinXP SP2 is installed on ST3160215A and I want to use SV0411N as slave. But after trying all possible combination I could not start my PC connecting both Hard Drives. I want to get all data from SV0411N but I am unable to connect it with ST3160215A. Any Idea how can I do this? Please solve my problem.

SOURCE: SATA HDD make SLAVE

IDE Cable with 3 connectors (you have 1 or need to buy 1) :
- blue: conn to motherboard
- black: conn to master HD
- grey: conn to slave HD
Cable (select:) cable will auto detect with most modern HD's from same type (SATA it was i think) and you need to go to you're BIOS, set up cable select for the HD's. Maybe best to set up master first, not both at same time. If you have a SATA and ATA set up the master first, then other. So if SATA is slafe but it in grey connector, otherwise black. For an ATA you might need a converter cable for the power, most motherboards don't have 1.

you can take backup of D drive om other computer .
Conect your harddrive to that other computers CPU but make sure that your hardddisk is slave which has issue you can set slave your hdd with jumper read on harddisk.
then connect it to cpu with SATA or IDE .
Then winxp find that all partition then take backup.

Boot your computer with winxp disk then follow the procedurer then you see on screen

How to install seagate ata IV hardrive


Hi,

The easiest way to upgrade from your old HD to the new 40Gb HD is to clone the old to the new. Do a google for "hard disk clone" freewares. Personally I use Partition Magic and have had very good results.

Hardware wise, you need to install the 40Gb as a slave to the old HD by connecting the same IDE cable as that of the old HD (you may have to remove your CD/DVD temporarily). You also have to temporarily remove the single jumper of the 40Gb to allocate it as a slave to the primary master (old HD). Plug in likewise the 4 wire power connector. On power up go to your CMOS/BIOS setup to verify that your PC autodetect the 40GB (you may have to do a manual detection). Boot your PC and go through the normal boot sequence. Thereafter download your clone software choice, install and run. Follow on screen instructions. You may need to reboot. After completion, use Windows Explorer to verify that everything has been copied. Power down, remove the old HD, relocate IDE cable connector of the old HD to the 40Gb, reconnect your CD/DVD, and place back the jumper of the 40Gb. On popwer up go again to your CMOS/BIOS to verify that the 40Gb & the CD are detected. Save & exit, reboot.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hi, Looks like it will be a motherboard issue not Maxtor (ATA) and Barracuda (SATA) combination. So the question really would be if your motherboard would accept and recognize the Barracuda SATA. Post back with your motherboard details, (brand/model/version). Kind regards.
