What is a ultra ata/100 hard drive is it the same as pata drive?


Ultra 100 is a type of cable designed to support 100mb/s vs 66mb/s. It has 80 pins vs. the 40 pins used on Ultra 66. Pata is short for Parallel ATA, which is the same interface as the Ultra 100 cable.

Can I install a hard drive in an HP Pavilion 6736 which has a capacity greater than 20GB ? If so, is there an upper limit to the capacity..can I install a 120 GB drive?


The size is not an issue with the hardware normally. Usually it has to do with the operating system. If you are running an OS like windows xp you should have no problem.

Just make sure you are using the SAME type interface hard drive. Example PATA Parallel ATA, or Serial ATA (SATA).

I want to install a aSATA HARD DRIVE IN MY 4600, IT SHOWS IT HAS ATA CAPABILITY BUT WHERE DO i PLUG IN THE DRIVE


As I recall the 4600 uses EIDE hard drives so you won't have SATA plugs. You may be able to get an adapter but it would be easier to install another PATA drive that will fit natively.

My Computer did not access Western Digital Hard Disk, Model No. WD 1600 AABB Caviar SATA.


Good morning! Please make sure that the drive’s power and SATA cables are properly connected. If the Serial ATA host adapter card is installed in a 64-bit PCI slot on the system motherboard, move the card to a 32-bit slot.

Verify that only one power cable (either SATA or legacy) is connected to the drive. Check to see that the power connector and SATA interface cable are securely attached and that the
SATA host adapter card is properly seated in the PCI slot.

The Serial ATA interface connects each drive in a point-to-point configuration with the built-in SATA port on the motherboard or with the SATA host adapter card; therefore eliminating the master/slave relationship as required with EIDE. Each drive utilizes its own
cable for data transfer rates. Jumper settings for Western Digital Serial ATA hard drives are mainly used for enterprise storage environments.

Most third party controller cards and RAID adapters are recognized as a SCSI device under Device Manager. This is normal and will not affect your drive or system performance.

To verify if the Serial ATA drive is recognized by the system, Right-click on the My Computer icon, select Properties, left-click on the Hardware tab, and click on Device Manager in the window. Double-click on Disk Drives. Your new Western Digital Serial ATA drive should be listed as a "SCSI Disk Device" or "Serial ATA Disk Device." If not, make sure that all cables are securely attached and that your system BIOS has been properly configured. regards

According to http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/desktops/0,1000000973,10004197,00.htm this tower has Serial ATA, or SATA. Just to confirm, you can easily pop open the case and take a look at the hard-drives. If you see a wide thin ribbon-like cable connecting to your hard-drive then you need an Ultra ATA (or just ATA or IDE) drive. It looks like this:

If a thinner red cable connects to your drive, then that is SATA. It looks like this:

You can go up to 120 GB for this model computer. Following is a link to Drive Solutions, Inc. It shows a 120 GB ATA drive available for your drive. ATA is the formal name for an IDE drive.
