I installed a sata dvd drive in my dc5100 sff the boot order recognises it as an ide drive

i dont think it matter if your system detects it as sata or ide, both interface will work in installing OS, the important thing is you changed your boot order. originally it was supposed to boot in 1st drive whichever it is hard drive or dvd drive. go to bios then follow the instruction in how to move the order of boot sequence, mine is SHIFT key then PLUS.

When i go to admin tools my simpletech 250gb hard drive does not show up. when i go to device manager it and says its working properly.i tried to populate the hard drive says its it broken?do...

I am assuming this is on a Windows system.
Try looking at it with disk management.
That should tell you that it is there and may offer you options.

Broken or a virus? Probably not.
I'd be looking at the USB cable. Is it the one that came with the drive?
Some cables only pass power, and not the data lines, so although the device manager says it is working properly, that may only mean it thinks the driver is correctly installed
And the cable may be faulty.

Oh, and I forgot, is the drive powered with a working power supply? And switched on? I sometimes forget that but too.

Help me! i delete all partition

Best thing to do is to try to get the restore cd set from SONY or reload the XP if you have XP CD (but you will still have to download the correct drivers for your laptop to get all the hardware to work properly) or original restore cd that comes with your laptop.

My maxtor 750GB external drive is not recognized by my CPU anymore!

It's probably either WinXP and a hub fighting over drive IDs, special drivers you installed but haven't been upgrading, or the thing isn't powered up properly.  Go to.  Oh, and your CPU (Intel, ARM, AMD, whatever) never recognizes hard drives; it's up to the OS.  What OS?  That's how you present a problem properly, in the right category.
