SATA (serial ATA) is a connection type, not a brand of hard drive. Any brand of hard drive will replace any other, as long as they are both SATA drives. The data and power connections are standard between drives, as are mounting dimensions. Normally, with SATA drives there are no jumpers or other configuration you need to deal with. Each SATA drive has its own connection to the motherboard, so you don't need to set master/slave jumpers like you would on the parallel ATA drives using the wide data cable.

Why is my quantum fireball hdd's led light flashing, bios failed to detect hdd?


Wow, you have a Quantum Fireball? I haven't heard about that hard drive model family in years, decades actually. They were last marketed back in 2001 but were most popular in the early to mid 1990s. Given the very low Mean Time Before Failure (MTBF) values of drives in that era, I am surprised that the drive has survived up to this time.

If I were to make a guess, I would say that your old IDE Fireball has gone the way of the dodo bird. Time to get something new and much more modern. IDE drives are no longer manufactured as it is an outmoded technology in favor of SATA. If you still have a machine that uses IDE, then definitely replace the machine with something much more modern and faster that will have a more spacious SATA drive.

New hard drive


Hi ,

Appreciate the direct "Ask me" again.

I have had very good experience with most brands of hard drives.
  • for durability - Seagate Barracuda;
  • for performance/speed - Western Digital;
  • for high transfer rate - SATA rather than IDE.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

goto the quantum site and verify the jumper setting on the drive first

if correct then.. check your sata cable is good...

check the bios to boot options so the quantum is set to boot...

under boot options .. hard drives.. sort the drive to be the first to boot
