SATA to IDE

I'm trying to install a Western Digital Serial ATA Hard Drive into the external hard drive enclosure. There are no instructions as to what cables need to be attached and to where


USB external hard drive cases are supplied with SATA and power connectors attached to the circuit board in the case. If you canot connect it to the SATA hard drive then you may have the wrong drive case, your case may be a IDE or SCSI type.

Hi , i have a 500gb hardrive i bought a few months ago, full of family memorys and although it powers up the computer has stopped or failed to regonise the hard drive , pleaser can you help .im desperate


Replace the cable you are currently using with your printer cable and see if it is the cable if that is not the case I would open the case, and check your connections on the hard drive, there is a chance it might have come loose.

I hook up the sata bridge adaptor and my computer is not reconizing the the hard drive is even there i can hook it up to ide and it works fine just wont work with the bridge


The bridge has a jumper I believe next to where the powerplug is. This jumper must be pulled out and put on the A-B NOT the A-C if youare going to use the IDE ribbon cable. Another trick is do not use the IDEcable (extra) that you may have with or below or above your other harddrivesince bios will always keep trying to go to your SATA drive even when youchange your primary drive with working operating system to slave and changeboot order....will just show on screen something like no boot disc. The easiestway without messing with the bios and drivers and all is this....move jumper toA-C then use one of the IDE cables that you have (you should have 2) of youCD-ROM. If you are using 2 CD-ROM's remove one and plug this IDE cable intoyour SATA bridge. The computer will now find new hardware. Then right clickthat new found drive when you click "My Computer" from"Start" and "Format" it, just to make sure everything is off thedrive even if new it will not hurt. Not sure if you want your SATA to be yourprimary drive but if you do,you now can use Acronis Ghost software or other tomirror your primary drive onto your new SATA. Once done take out or dissconnectyour primary drive and install your SATA into that slot or above or below yourprimary drive if you have available room in your tower then hook that IDE cableto your SATA and hook power. BAM.. your computer will now use the SATA to bootup and all is fine. Remember SATA does not have slave/master jumpers like IDEdrives. Now if anything happens to that SATA you still have you disconnectedprimary drive to fall back on. If your concerned about wanting 2 drives you maybe able to take your original primary drive and change that jumper from Masterto Slave.Since bios will default to your new SATA drive now and use that hasyour master and boot up from that drive. If you do not want to use yourSATA as your primary without installing an operating system or usingghost/mirror software then to make life easier just use the IDE cable from oneof the CD-ROM's or get an extension IDE cable that will reach since your SATAdrive is smaller and most likely will not neatly fit into the CD-ROM slots. Youcan use the extra slot if you have one above or below your primary drive yourusing now, then plug your CD-ROM IDE cable (with extension if needed to reach)into SATA and then you can now use the SATA to send files and anything else youwant to store in that drive. Hope this helps.

When I go to my computer the external drive is not there. I put 1 TB drive in the masscool case.


Not enough info. Make sure you plug it into the SAME usb port it was in before, or you may have to format the drive to work in the computer. USB does not work the same way as the sata or IDE drives.
Hope that helps.

Computer doesn't recognize hard drive


If your hard drive is not recognize by your computer try to enter cmos set-up and see if your HDD is detected and if it is detected by your pc then you probably have error in your MBR, try to format your hdd using fdisk. If this doesn't work you maybe have a faulty HDD, try to replace with a new one to try if your HDD is really the problem, also replace your data cable (IDE/SATA) maybe that the problem. good luck with this.
