Hey there

there are tiny little jumpers on the hard drive itself there's also a diagram that tells you what jumper to set..basically there's only about 3 options try the other two options then plug it on the mobo and then try to see if the mobo detect it.

one of the option WILL always work.

good luck

Maybe the sata controller on your motherboard is disabled. Try searching for the settings of your sata controller on the bios and enable it.

I need the drivers a western digital sata 160 g hard drive model wd1600aabb for the xp platform please!!! can anyone help?


There are no such drivers....sata hard drives use windows drivers...if the computer is asking for drivers for a hard drive, then it is seeking drivers within windows...which means there could be corruption in those windows drivers that the WD HDD needs. Try going to windows update, let it load and check for updates and instead of hitting express, hit custom and look in the left hand pane for hardware updates and see if the drivers for a hard drive would be there. WD only offers Firmware updates and software for its HDD's.
