Hi i bought WD 320 gb sata /8mb hard drive - the cable ribbon on my dell 4600 does not plug into it! do i need a different cable yes


Hi,
Generally speaking, we have two types of hard disk interface. IDE (the old one with ribbon cable) and SATA (with a 1cm strip like cable).
As your new hard disk is SATA, you need a SATA cable to connect it to you PC.
Below are a few images which would help you.

Hi, I have a msi n1996 865gvm3-v motherboard and it doesn't want to pick up my sata drive, what to do?


If you are trying to install Windows XP and it does not detect the SATA hard drive.
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Hi

Thank you for your query

From what you are describing you are missing the SATA controller

Please do the following

1) Go to www.devicedoctor.com and download and install application
2) Once installed load up and click on begin scan
3) Once it has scanned it will probably pick up missing SATA controller and give you the option to download
4) Download the SATA controller and install
5) Reboot PC and the SATA drive should be recognised

Can not pick up my hard drive


Check the jumpers on the HDD are not set to slave.

Try a different SATA channel (or IDE channel) on the MOBO.

Try different molex to power the drive up. Hold the drive when it is connected, does it hum indicating that the platter is spinning?

Ga-k8ns pro motherboard/ pc self build


Hey me too. Just bought a sata drive. I have the same mobo (AK86-L), and now the same problem. Updated the bios and SATA is enabled. Updated the driver. Tried both sata 1 and sata 2 connections on the mobo. It will not recognize the drive although it picks up that something is connected to the mobo. Its a WD Caviar 500 GB drive. Anyone have any thoughts?

Hard drive replacement


SATA drives are the latest hard drives available nowadays. You could try going online and checking other sites that could still have an IDE hard available for sale.
