How to connect your hard drive to your motherboard

The first thing you have to figure out is what type of hard drive you have, a PATA or a SATA drive.

PATA = Parallel ATA
This type of drive uses the older IDE connections. Most of your current motherboards still have aleast one IDE connection to support the ROM drives on the market that have not moved over to SATA connections but you can still connect a hard drive to this connection if needed. The thing to keep in mind is that you can only connect 2 IDE devices to one IDE connection on the motherboard.

Here is an example of an IDE cable. If you can see there are tabs on the cable to make sure you line up the pins properly.

SATA = Serial Advanced Technology Attachment
This type is now the standard that most hard drives are. Also note that alot of your ROM drives are switching over to this format as well.

Here is an example of a SATA cable.

In regards to power connectors If you are using a PATA drive then you will use the Molex power connector. Note some of the early SATA drives use this power connector as well.

For the SATA drives you would use the SATA power connector. Note if your power supply does not have this connection you can get an adapter that goes from a Molex connection to the SATA connector.

Next you will need to find the connectors for the hard drive on your motherboard. Below if pictures of the 2 connection types.

How 2 install a triple format sata internal drive in a gateway desk top


check for a open sata port on your computer. if there is one connect the hard drive with a SATA cable to the sata port on the motherboard.
connect the sata power to the hard drive or a molex to the hard drive if you do not have one. do not connect sata and molex to the hard drive together. if you don't have a molex connect you will need a molex to sata power adapter.
after connecting the hard drive to your pc. turn it on. in windows xp it will auto detect the hard drive and may prompt you to format the hard drive.

Look inside your P.C. 1st to check SATA data connection type.

Google image 'eSATA' data lead/cable and you will see the difference between the eSATA and SATA connection if you don't already know.

Do you have an different power supply to try with the hard drive? I had the exact same problem with a WD MyBook and the power supply was weak. I had the drive for a little over a year when this happened. Thank goodness for multiple year warranties on the MyBook!
