Check your BIOS and make sure your SATA is enabled. Also verify that the SATA cable is tight in the back of your drive and on the motherboard itself.

Dear i am using ms-7142 v-1 motherboard. now i,m using ide 80 gb hdd.now i want to connect 160 gb sata hdd.its not showing bios also.hdd is working fine.i reinstalled os.and installed sata raid driver


first thing I would try is seeing if the sata drive is recognised on another motherboard if at all possible ,in order to eliminate the motherboard as the issue.If it is recognised on a different motherboard it is more than likeley a bad cable or a bad board .

My external hard drive is not recognised by any computer now and I can't access the data on it.


It could be a problem of driver . Try this site : http://www.easydriverpro.com/lpd/drivers/drivers-en.php?sr=1&ci=600&agid=9125&ad=6575&kid=9125&sukid=11928&t=1a&gclid=CNbNlpL9oKYCFYsz3god1wfRmg

If nothing really succeeds , the last but drastic solution is to open the box and connect the drive right inside your pc ( provided it's a desktop ) to the motherboard via ide or sata connection . Windows should then recognize the drive .

DVD drive is not recognised. There is power to the drive but no drive letter in My Computer and no discs will play.


The data connection to the motherboard is not plugged in, it's loose or it is not set to slave or master.

You need to open the PC and see if it is connected. If it has a SATA connection, make sure the SATA cable it's plugged into the DVD drive and into the motherboard. If it is a IDE cable, then make sure it is properly plugged into the DVD drive and motherboard. If it is plugged in, make sure the jumper is set to cable select.

I have no idea what I am doing. I put in a sata driver on my ide motherboard. I bought and hooked up all cords to connect it and now it only opens and closes. It will not install or read any disc. What...


Thank you for your question.

The fact that it opens and closes means you are very close in getting it to work correctly.

Could we take a moment to sort out the technical aspects of what you are asking/saying?

Sata Driver on IDE Motherboard?
A driver is software that is installed to the Operating System. Do you mean a SATA Converter, so that the IDE connection is changed into a SATA connection? If so, let's move on.

The cords that you connected, is it two (usually)red cords with single black ends at each end? If so, let's move on.

If we have got this far, you will have to enter the BIOS settings to ensure that the motherboard has found your new DVD. If you have your manual it will explain which button to push on initial bootup to enter BIOS. It can be "delete", "F2 or F12', manufacturers are not consistent on this. Once in BIOS you need to make sure all options for the IDE drives are on "auto", makes the BIOS do the work for you.

You do not have to install the DVD, the BIOS recognises the new Drive as a Storage Device like a Hard Drive, no drivers needed.

Although the other thing after successfully getting the drive to read discs is you will need to install the optional programmes such as Power DVD for watching movies and Nero for burning DVD?CD's.

Kind regards

DVD wont recognise disc


If your DVD drive don't show up in device manager and if there's no yellow exclamation mark in device manager, try to check IDE or SATA cable connection from your DVD drive to the motherboard. Also check the cable itself (are the wires inside broken?)

How do i hookup sata dvd drive


You should have been supplied a SATA cable if you have bought a new DVD drive. On your motherboard you will see 2 orange connectors just underneath where the older IDE grey cables plug in. Thesae are you 2 SATA connectors. They will be labeled as 0 and 1, if you are not using of these at moment connect to SATA 1 incase you decide to hook up a SATA HDD drive at some stage. Power cable just plugs in as usual. If PC doesnt recognise the drive you will need to go into the bios ( press DEL or F2 at startup) and it will be listed under something like drive configuration and just enable SATA there.

Sata DVD burner


This is happening because the DVD SATA is booting like a first drive instead of the IDE Drive.
Be sure that your SATA drive is connected to a right port on your motherboard.
Go to your bios and into the boot options be sure that the IDE drive boot first than the SATA DVD.
******************************
Another way is connecting an adaptor SATA to IDE and connect your SATA DVD Drive as second IDE on your motherboard.

******************************
This will be fixing your problem.


Have a great day
