I LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO KNOW WHETHER THE PRODUCT IS STILL FUNCTIONING OR NOT? PLEASE ADVISE. SHOW ME HOW TO DO THE CONNECTION OF THE IDE CABLE TO THE HARD DISC AND THE POWER CABLE? HOPEFULLY THESE ARE NOT...


No product support question is stupid, Peter.

1) An IDE cable should be plugged in with the Number 1 socket hole in the IDE cable's connector, going on the Number 1 pin on the harddrive.

Number 1 pin on an IDE optical drive, or harddrive, is next to the 4-pin power connection.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Hard_drive-en.svg

Illustration which shows the back of an IDE (PATA) harddrive.

See the area marked as IDE Connector?
Two rows of pins.

Next over are the Jumper pins in the Jumper Block.

Finally, next to the Jumper Block is the 4-pin power connection.


To make sure the IDE flat ribbon cable, is inserted into the harddrive in the correct position, a Locating Lug is usually on the IDE flat ribbon cable's connector.

A small rectangle, or two bumps side by side, on the top edge of the connector.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ATA_Plug.svg

This Locating Lug lines up with a cutout, in the circuit board of the harddrive.
A Locating Notch.

Sometimes there isn't a Locating Lug.
In this case look at the side edge of the IDE cable for the faint Red stripe.
This red stripe is on the same side as Number 1 pin.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nappe.svg

So when you go to plug the IDE cable in, make sure the Red stripe is facing the 4-pin power connection.

Goes for an optical drive (CD/DVD drive), or a Harddrive.



(On the motherboard there are usually two IDE headers. {Connectors}

One for the Primary IDE device, a Harddrive, and one for the Secondary IDE device.
Usually an optical drive.

Next to the Primary IDE connector on the motherboard may be PRI, or Pri, or Primary, or IDE 1.
{ In TINY letter/numbers }

Next to the Secondary IDE connector on the motherboard, may be SEC, or Sec, or Secondary, or IDE 2.

Sometimes only the Secondary connector is marked. This tells you the other connector is the Primary connector.

Number 1 pin is towards the marking. Primary, or Secondary.
The Red stripe goes towards the marking on the motherboard )

Also;
There are two rows of pins on the back of the Harddrive for the IDE cable.
With a cursory glance it may look as though there are two rows of 20 pins.
There is not.

One pin has been removed. One row only has 19 pins.
Generally, but NOT always, the matching socket hole in the IDE cable's connector, is blocked off with a plug.

An IDE cable only uses 39 socket holes even if there are 40 shown.

Also; NOT a good idea to put a Harddrive, and an Optical Drive, on the same IDE cable.

BIOS looks to see which drive has the Master Boot Record.
Windows master boot record.
This is on the Harddrive.

BIOS will look at both, the Harddrive, and the Optical Drive.
This slows the computer down, for one.
For two, BIOS may not find which drive has the master boot record, with both drives on the same IDE flat ribbon cable.

Harddrive goes to the Primary IDE cable.
Optical drive/s go to the Secondary IDE cable.



2) As for the power cable it is a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.
Often misnomered as a 'Molex' cable.

[Molex was the model name given by the first company to produce this connector.
It stuck.
Kind of like referring to an open-end wrench as a Crescent wrench ]

It is also a STANDARD 4-pin Peripheral power cable, because there two 4-pin Peripheral power cables.

4-pin Standard Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note in the center photo the shape of the connector.
The top two corners are rounded.
Only plugs in, in one direction.

{The Yellow wire is a 12 Volt wire.
Red = 5 Volts
Black wires are Ground wires }

4-pin Small Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#floppy

Older computers used this power cable for a Floppy Drive.
Newer computers use it for a Card Reader.

I have a dell computer and installing a samsung dvd-writer model sh-222 and it is not seeing it. How do the cable get installed on the slave or master?


if your using sata connect then it really does not matter the mother board will detect it as it wants though it should be plugged into master 1 and hdd into master 0 if your using the older type ribbon then you must make sure that the dvd player has its jumping pin plugged into slave at the back of the dvd writer. there is a small cluster of 6 pins with a small plastic jumper that needs to be put on were it says slave

best of luck need more help feel free to email

Need drivers


a disk drive does not need to have drivers installed. they are built in. if your system does not recognize the drive you have a problem.a few things come to mind and i will list them in order of easiest to hardest to fix.
1 make sure the power supply connector and the ribbon wire are correctly and FULLY plugged in.
2 look at the ribbon wire to it (the widest one) see if it has blue plugs or black plugs. if it is blue you must make sure the jumper on the back of the drive is set to CS (cable select) this will let the cable decide if it is master or slave. it decides this by which plug is used.
if it is black you must manually set the jumper to either MA (master) or SL (slave). if it is the only thing hooked to that ribbon wire select MA. if there is another drive hooked to that ribbon wire, see what that is set to and set the new drive to the other one. fir instance if the other drive is the master this one must be the slave or vice versa.
your most likely problem is the jumper is set incorrectly. but the others are easier to fix. just push the wires on better. lol.
hope i helped.

New DVD


Say what drive model you are replacing. The  IDE interface ribbon cable is a broad PATA cable that plugs into the the slot at rear of the drive ,its the only place it can go .IF your cable is a narrow one you need a drive with a SATA cable.

A few things you can try:

Carefully check that the ribbon cable is firmly seated in the IDE slot on the motherboard.

Perhaps try a new ribbon cable.

Hook up the burner by itself (unplug the power and the ribbon cable from the other CD) Make sure that the burners jumper setting is for cable select or try master and also make sure that the burner is at the end of the ribbon cable not in the center connection

Hope this helps.

Dell Inspiron 1501


If the laptop keeps working, and you can use it on an external screen, then it is likely an hardware fault.

First perform a complete system recovery, like probably already instructed by the Dell support helpdesk. This will practically exclude the possibility of a driver or system problem.

If the problem is hardware , then you may have a faulty inverter board , a bad LCD display/LCD ribbon connection, or a faulty video adapter (integrated with motherboard).

If the problem is the inverter, then the screen will go dark, and the laptop will keep working on external display. This is probably your case.

If the problem is LCD display or ribbon cable, then the display will be blank with light on , and the laptop will keep working on external monitor.

Fault concerning video adapter usually cause the the system not to work at all, and it is uncommon under conditions described.

Installing hard drive on this model


Hi,
Sure why not.
You,ll need a ribbon cable also 40 or 80 strand IDE Cable. to connect from hard-drive to Motherboard. If you have an existing connector already in. this should be In IDE 1 Or Primary slot ( on motherboard ) there should also be a secondary IDE Slot.
connect ribbon to IDE 2 Or secondary slot, and to hard-drive.
ensure the jumper on the hard-drive is set to Slave Or Master, if your running another device from that same cable, set to Master/Slave alternate to hard Drive.
Good luck and go for It.
Power Off first.
Motherboards are,nt too happy about Static.
