Better get a SATA adapter card, as this mobo uses IDE (PATA) harddrives. http://www.legendmicro.com/store/4761_ECS-C51PVGM-GB--Gateway-4006136R-SK-AM2-2000FSB-DDR2-MBTX-AVL---New-C51PVGMGB.lmsp

Just bought a new cpu, put it together and purchased the western digital 160 gb sata II model number WD1600AAJS. i am installing windows 7 on it, or attempting and it won't recognize the drive. it says it...


The drivers are not needed, West. Digital is right. Your problem is that the hard disk is not recognized by the motherboard (not the cpu). Since you didn't mentioned anything about motherboard's brand / model, I have to tell you that you have to get into the bios settings and get yout hard disk recognized by the bios. I assume that the connections are right.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

My samsung 40 gb hdd not detectin inany computer after new installation


Is your hard drive a SATA (Serial ATA, a thin cable) or IDE (a fat, usually gray cable)?

If your hard drive is a SATA, be sure that the both the power and data cables are securely connected to the hard drive (and data to the motherboard). Then go into your BIOS and make sure your hard drive is seen by the motherboard. It should read a model number similar to that of the model indicated on the hard drive label.

If your hard drive is an IDE, make sure you've selected the CS (cable select) mode on the hard drive using the correct jumper setting. It should be displayed on the label using a small diagram. If it isn't, you can use the Samsung HDD Jumper Settings page to check the settings. Also be sure the cables are secured, as IDE cables can be difficult to fully connect. If this is the case, try using just the hard drive on its own without any other IDE/SATA devices connected, and see if your motherboard detects it.

Try different cables for either type to make sure it's not just the cables that are causing the issue.

If all the above have been tried and your computer still cannot see the hard drive, you may have a faulty hard drive, motherboard or power supply. Try using your hard drive in a different computer, if it still fails to be recognized, you'll need to replace your drive. If it is recognized, your motherboard or power supply may be at fault. Try a different power supply. If that doesn't work your motherboard may be the issue.

Best of luck.

Check your AHCI (or ACHI, can't remember) settings in your BIOS. Turn them off, use "standard pata mode" even though you're using a SATA drive, and try again.

How to make Seagate ST3200822AS 200 GB Hard Drive


If you are using the drives in a fairly new computer, the drives have a setting called "cable select" If these are EIDE drives, then they have jumpers on a set of pins on the power side of the drive. Look on the drive and use the power plug as a reference for how the jumper fits on the pins to make the drive "cable select" and what that means is the drive will conform to which cable is plugged into it. If you have the slave cable plugged into the drive, that is how the motherboard will recognize it.

I have had to reinstall my operating system and drives but now the Seagate 500 GB external is not recognized. What now?


Are you using eSATA for the External or USB. If it is eSATA you may need to get the respective drivers for your motherboard for it.

Wd800jd sata hard drive not recognized in bios on boot up


Hi, A couple of ideas: 1. There are 3 versions of this motherboard: Dragon Plus, V1.0 & V2.0, perhaps your BIOS needs an update to be able to recognize the new HD. This of course would require flashing; 2. There are two variations of a WD SATA hard drive: Serial ATA amd Serial ATA II; 3. Re Jumper settings: the eight-pin jumper block is only used to enable power management on the drive. There are no master/slave settings since there is only one drive per cable; 4. If you are fresh installing Windows on it, you need to press F6 when asked by the Windows Installer and follow on-screen instructions. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.

Harddrive


Hi, Looks like it will be a motherboard issue not Maxtor (ATA) and Barracuda (SATA) combination. So the question really would be if your motherboard would accept and recognize the Barracuda SATA. Post back with your motherboard details, (brand/model/version). Kind regards.
