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.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps don

How can I download windows onto a IDE 500GB hard drive useing a SATA computer is there some kind of adaptor


Are you able to connect the IDE drive to the motherboard? If so, you should be able to install Windows just fine. If there are no IDE connections on your motherboard, they sell adaptors to convert IDE to SATA on Newegg.com.

I have 2 lacie external hard drives that no longer work. They power up and I can hear it working, but they are not reconized on any computer.


Chances are, the IDE/SATA to USB/Firewire controller inside the device has died. You can take the case apart and take the hard drive out, and plug it directly into a computer through IDE or SATA, whichever it is. If the drive is recognized, then all you need is another external case to put the drive into. If it isn't recognized then most likely the powerboard on the hard drive or some other internal mechanical part is dead, and you would need professional data recovery to get anything off of it that you would want.

Won't reconize DVD burner


Well, the CD ribon cable goes into the IDE 2 slot on the Mainboard and the furthest connector on the other end is the master, the second one closest to the board is the Slave connector. The CD drive has a jumper on the back between where the ribbon and the power connector go, on the case some where it should have a diagram showing the jumper setting to put it in as master or slave. Set it accordingly.

Same with Hard drives.

If the Hard drive has a diferent Cable like a SATA, then be sure to get a SATA as the new one.

Now the IDE cables may be bad check them for damage just to be on the safe side.

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

Supplied also are data connectors to link the IDE or SATA hard drive with a USB port. Use this adaptor set to retrieve data from a hard drive when it is not mounted in a computer.

Connecting an IDE HDD to a SATA port using an IDE to SATA converter


Not complete product...need to buy additional adapter for IDE to SATA power source.
IDE drive will have to have the power source hooked up as well as the adaptor hooked up.
Installing the adaptor only will not work. Your computer should have the 4 pin plug for the power to the IDE drive, other wise you will have to buy another adaptor.
