Ide data interface connector problem

Hi,
You kindly answered my question a few days ago about how to join both the HDD & CD rom to mobo with one ide cable by suggesting I get a threeway ide data interface cable which I have now bought however all the connectors on the new cable and the HDD,CD rom all have female type connectors so will not join to one another.
The ironic thing is that I already have the type of cable I have just bought already on my PC but thought the new one would have different connectors.
Any ideas on what I can do?
Thanks very much
Regards
Ryk

Hi Ryk,

I remember that I have suggested you to use three point IDE cable. But I don't know what type of cable you have purchased.

Anyway here is picture of the IDE cable which i was suggested.

If any problem just Ask me

Hmmm.... mainly you have:
-20 or 24-pins connector, that is unique and goes directly to motherboard (powers motherboard and its components)
-4 or 8-pins connector that powers CPU
-the rest would be connectors for ROM (CD/DVD/BlueRay) and HDD devices (there are: molex and sata power conectors)

Sir When i connect cd rom & hard disk together on my computer then the does not work.Kindly give me a solution.


There is a jumper in HDD and CDrom

  • Set the hard disk jumper to Master Connect the drive using the Master connector on the primary IDE cable.
  • Set the CDD jumper to Slave Connect the drive using the Slave connector on the primary IDE cable.
To know about jumper settings verify this link

Ecs 6100sm-m mobo connections


you have a few options

1) buy a sata harddrive (faster then ide), use the ide for the second harddrive (backup) and cd/dvd rom

2) buy a sata cd/dvd rom use the ide on both harddrives (1 set to slave)

3) depends on your budget, buy a sata drive + sata cd/dvd rom so your main drive is on sata (faster than ide) then you only have your second drive as your backup drive on ide.

i had the same problem when i rebuilt mine, i went for the seperate harddrive and cd/dvd rom and my 320 gb ide as my backup drive

sorry to jump on this post aswell, see what others think

IDE Problem (I Think)


Depends what kind of motherboard is. You may want to check with a different IDE ribbon cable. Make sure that the IDE controller is ENABLED within BIOS. Set the HDD as Master - see those jumpers next to the power and data connectors. Try with another (IDE) HDD and see if the controller is working. Don't asume the 1st HDD is working OK, you never know ...it may be broken now ...

Wont boot even with factory cd


When you swich on the laptop push f10 to get in to bios, there is a feature to test the HDD(there was on a hp laptop few days ago), see if that says anything useful (that should take a while), and try to change the boot sequence at boot options, first should be the cd/dvd rom than the hdd. This way your pc will try to boot from cd first, if nothing than Hdd is next.
Than you should be able to boot from your CD, if not than open up your PC case and chack the cables, take off the power and data cables and reattach them, sometimes it does the trick.
Worst case scenario is that your HDD is dead, if you got warrenty left than use it, if not than buy a new one from the local store or order one from ebay or zipzoomfly, just check what type do you need, the size is up to you, even 500GB drives are quite cheap nowdays. You need to open up your pc and check what type of cable is going to the HDD it can be IDE or SATA to know for sure what type of HDD you need.
