Antec P190 5.25" Drive Rails

Hi there, my Antec P190 case only had 3 sets of 5.25 drive rails when I purchased it and I need a fourth set. Can you tell me where I can get a pair?

I found some on Antec's US site but they don't ship to the UK.

Help!

Thanks

    I have the same problem except for a 3.5 drive in a Systemax PC. It was put together by Simply, since taken over by Misco, who deny all knowledge. I could not find any drive rails from the reply.

Dell inspiron 3847


Dell has not published the procedures for installing an additional SATA hard drive, the Inspiron 3847 has a second 3.5" bay, for the second hard drive next to the primary hard drive, there should be a set of rails located in the bay, two 6-32X1/4, phillips head screws are needed, to attach the rails.
The procedures on pages 26 to 28 of the owners manual should give you an idea of what is required for the installation.
http://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products-Infodev/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_inspiron_desktop/inspiron-3847-desktop_Owner%27s%20Manual_en-us.pdf
You will need a SATA data cable there should be a spare SATA power connector inside the case.

After installing the drive enter the system setup and check that the hard drive is 'enabled' [on] and recognized.
For Windows to recognize the second hard drive, it must be partitioned and formatted.

Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Storage, Disk Management, right click new drive, select format, then you can assign a drive letter.

Can I use the Antec MX-25 to transfer files from my PC (desktop)


Hi,

The answer is yes and no. The Antec MX25 is just an enclosure for a hard drive, you will need to purchase a separate hard drive to put into the enclosure. Think of it like an empty box to hold the hard drive. Once you have it fitted out with a hard drive, you can then transfer files from your PC to the drive and then take them wherever you need.

The hard drive you will need will be a 2.5" SATA hard drive, up to a maximum 500GB in size.

Hope this helps.

Not sure what "RAM is accessing it" means?

First to emergency eject, there should be a tiny pinhole in the front of the drive door. Straighten out a paperclip and push it firmly in the hole and the drive will open.

2 likely problems. One is that your laser LED has burned out, in which the drive is pretty much useless, other than that:

If you carefully dismantle the drive:
(you'll need to carefully push the open CD tray up and out to remove it from its cogs, then undo the screws and take the case apart, finally remove the metal shield that covers the rails and the laser head).

You'll see the laser head which rides back and forth on two metal rails. Sometimes it get stuck on the rails and cant move back and forth anymore. This results in a disk that still spins up and a computer that sees the drive, but no data read. If this is the case it is simple to push the laser head along the rails to free it up, grease the rails with a little silicone lubricant and reassemble the drive.

Optical drives are so cheap nowadays though, might just be worth getting a new one. At least you know how to recover stuck CDs now!

I need help installing a cd drive in an Antec Sonata III 500 computer case. How do I do it?


Unplug the power from the computer. Open the case cover. Carefully remove the placeholder on the front of the case where you wish to install the CD drive. Make sure you have the proper ribbon cable for the type of drive you are installing and that you know where to plug it into the motherboard (consult your motherboard manual).

Use the screws provided to secure the drive to the chassis rails (make face of drive flush with front of case). Attach an available power supply connector to the new CD drive. Close the cover.

How to install a second dvd player in my compaq


The computer needs to be opened up to properly install the CD or DVD drive into the computer. The method for opening the case will vary depending upon the case. Most new systems will use a panel or door on the side of the system while older systems may require the whole cover be removed. Remove and set aside and screws fastening the cover or panel to the computer case and then remove the cover.
Computer cases can generally hold a number of external drives but only a few are generally used. Any unsed drive slot has a cover that prevents dust from entering the computer and makes the case look better. To install the drive, it will be necessary to remove a 5.25" drive slot cover from the case. Removal of these generally is done by pushing some tabs either on the inside or outside of the case. Some may be screwed into the case.
The majority of all CD and DVD drives for computer systems use the IDE interface. This interface can have two devices on a single cable. Each device on the cable must be placed into the appropriate mode for the cable. One drive is listed as the master and the other secondary drive is listed as a slave. This setting is generally handled by one or more jumpers on the back of the drive. Consult the documentation or diagrams on the drive for the location and settings for the drive. If the CD/DVD drive is going to be installed on an existing cable, the drive needs to be set into the Slave mode. If the drive is going to reside on its own IDE cable alone, the drive should be set to the Master mode.
At this point, the CD/DVD drive needs to be placed into the computer. The method for installing the drive will vary depending on the case. The two most common methods for installing a drive into a case is either through drive rails or directly into the drive cage. Rails: Place the drive rails onto the side of the drive and fasten it with screws. Once the drive rails have been placed on both sides of the drive, slide the drive and rails into the appropriate slot in the case. Make sure to affix the drive rails so that the drive is flush with the case when it is fully inserted into the case. Drive Cage: Slide the drive into the slot in the case so that the drive bezel is flush with the computer case. When this is done, fasten the drive to the computer case by placing screws into the appropriate slots or holes in the case.
Many people use the CD/DVD drive inside of their computer to listen to audio CDs. In order for this to work, the audio signal from the CD needs to be routed from the drive to the computer audio solution. This is typically handled by a small two wire cable with a standard connector. Plug this cable into the back of the CD/DVD drive. The other end of the cable will plug either into a PC audio card or motherboard depending upon which the computer uses for audio. Plug the cable into the connector labeled as CD Audio.
At this point, the CD/DVD drive needs to be attached to the computer through an IDE cable. For most users, the drive will reside as a secondary drive to the hard drive. If this is the case, locate the free connector on the IDE ribbon cable between the computer and the hard drive and plug it into the drive. If the drive is going to be on its own cable, plug the IDE cable into the motherboard and one of the other connectors of the cable into the CD/DVD drive.
The only internal item left to do for installing the drive is to plug it into the power supply. This is done by locating one of the 4-pin Molex connectors from the power supply and inserting it into the power connector on the CD/DVD drive.
At this point the drive is fully installed into the computer case so it can be closed up. Replace the panel or cover to the computer case. Be sure to fasten the cover or panel back to the case using the screws that were set aside when the cover was removed.
All of the installation steps for the CD or DVD drive are now completed. The only thing left to do is return power to the computer. Plug the AC cord back into the power supply and be sure to flip the switch to the on position.
Regards..

Install new hard drive


If all that you are doing is replacing the hard-drive then you only need to do the following as the Dell cases are a screwless design and only require you to:
  • pop the case open,
  • disconnect the drive and power cables, (noting these for reassembly later)
  • push the green drive rail tabs inward toward the drive, and
  • remove the drive from the case.
Next you'll need to replace the hard drive.
Tools needed:
  • Philips head screwdriver, or
  • Nut driver.
Procedure:
  • Take the old hard drive to a flat space, ideally a workbench and unscrew the four mounting screws from the drive rails.
  • Take your new hard drive out of its Anti-Static bag and begin to put the drive rails back on the new drive.
  • If this is the only drive in the PC I suggest you set the drive to being the Master drive on the IDE bus. If you do not know what this means google the drive model (on the label on the hard-drive) and you'll find details of how to set up the drive to be the master on the IDE bus.
When the above procedure is complete you'll need to re-insert the drive back into computer case. That is simply reversing the procedure you used to take it out of the case.

Finally you'll need to reboot the computer and go into the BIOS to ensure that the drive is being seen and is of the correct size.
Lastly you'll need to pop in the OS CD-ROM and rebuild the system.
Note that on some of the early GX150's there was a problem with the firmware of the CD-ROM that allowed you to load the OS, reboot and then the installation would hang as the OS could not read the hardware due to an incompatibility. This can be solved by simply replacing the GX150 CD-ROM with another CD-ROM during the build and then putting the old CD-ROM back in place after the final reboot of the PC before you log on for the first time.

Hope this is of some help from a newby solution provider.
Sincerely
Andrew Martin

Gigabyte hard drive rails


Hi, I think your best bet would be to log onto the Gigabyte site and look for their reccomended traders. If this fails go to Ebay and place a "Want It Now" add to see if someone has what you need.
