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.

What settings in the bios with maxtor as slve and quantom fireball as master


There are no settings in the BIOS for setting up master ans slave drives.
The hard drives have jumpers for configuring master and Slave drives.
If your hard drives are IDE/PATA hard drives and you intend to install these drives on the same IDE cable then you can set the jumper on Quantum drive as Master and the Maxtor on Slave.
I suggest that you install the Quantum as master on the 1st IDE cable and the Maxtor as Master on the 2nd IDE cable for maximum data transfer rate between the two hard drived.
Any other devices that are connected to these IDE cables will need to be jumpered as Slave devices.

The computer would not boot with a 2nd IDE drive installed


Try setting the jumper on the IDE hard drive to SL (ie slave).

I want to install a bigger hard drive, what type of hard drive do I need?


It might be difficult to find, but purchase an IDE type drive. Your system does not have data ports that can handle the newer SATA drives.
Ask that the store test the drive, if possible, as it could have been a customer return!

Invalid configuration information-please run setup program. Performing automatic IDE configuration...... how to solve this problem.. tq..


Did you install a new hard drive, CD drive or DVD drive?
When a new drive is installed it needs to be configured in the BIOS. If so you need to go into the setup (BIOS) menu and then hold down the and keys and the press the and key to re detect newly installed IDE drives.
IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) refers to the interface circuit that the motherbrd uses to communicate with your hard drive, CD drive or DVD drive.

When I open Dell 24000 I get an error sign primary drive 0 not found It tells me to hit f2-- but when I do I get no response. A colleague told me it was a loose cable so i have opened the tower but I do...


the hard drive IDE cables are flat, ribbon cables, usually grey and about 3 inches wide. do not confuse this with the floppy drive cable, which will look identical, except that it is 2 inches wide.

the cable could be loose on either the motherboard IDE controller end or the hard drive end, so wiggle it in tighter, or unplug and then re-plug it at both ends, and then try to boot. if that does not work, then replace the cable.

if a new cable does not fix it, then the hard drive itself may have failed. install the hard drive in a DIFFERENT working computer as a secondary (slave drive) by installing it to the middle connector of the IDE cable (IDE cables have a connector for the "master" or only drive at the end, and a plug for a "slave" drive in the middle of the cable), and see if you can access it. it will probably show up as the "E" drive under "computer" or "my computer". if it does not show up, check and see if it shows up under "administrative tools>computer management>disk management". if the drive is not showing up, then it is dead. if the drive works in the second computer, then the IDE CONTROLLER is the culprit.

if the motherboard's integrated IDE controller is dead, you may want to try the OTHER IDE controller socket. most computers from that era have 2 IDE controller sockets, and usually attach the hard drive(s) to one, and the cd/dvd rom(s) to the other. since the hard drive cables have plugs for 2 devices, you can attach both the hard drive and a single cd/dvd drive to the 2nd ide controller socket, in cases where the 1st ide controller soocet no longer works. attach the hard drive to the end of the IDE cable, and the cd/dvd drive to the middle of the IDE cable, as the "master" or boot device should always be attached to the end of the IDE cable.

you can also purchase an add-in, pci card ATA/IDE controller card, and use this instead of the motherboard's integrated IDE controller sockets.

How do i change my sata controller to use ide?


Buy an IDE controller. Then install it.

OR

Buy a SATA hard drive and install it. SATA drives are faster. If you need to get data from your IDE drive to a new SATA drive, try using a IDE slave cable. These connect an IDE drive to one of your USB ports and allows you to use the drive just like an external hard drive or USB thumb drive. Pretty cool stuff. Have fun.

Can i Install PATA hdd on Dimension 4700


I'm sorry, but I couldn't wade through this bunch responses, so I'm going to give you my own.

You have 2 sata drives installed, already, so you cannot add an additional one w/o a bunch of wonky adapters, so use the IDE channel. You say you have an IDE rom drive. Well, there's a reason there are 3 connections on an IDE cable. One side goes into the motherboard, the other 2 into your drives. The motherboard side is the one furthest away from the center connector. I assume you have the primary connector connected to your rom drive. the 2ndary one would be on your hdd. Why people asked you why you're doing this is beyond me. It works, you'll have an extra drive, your preference. Whatever.

Let me know if you have any more inquiries.

To answer your questions from your original post directly, the other 'ide' channel is specifically for a floppy disk You CANNOT connect an IDE cable to it. And yes, you can connect an  hdd to the slave port on the ide cable.
