Question about Kingwin SATA to IDE Bridge Board (ADP06) IDE EIDE Serial ATA Drive Case
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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
