System won?t recognize SATA drive

I have an Elitegroup P4M800-M7 mother board and I just bought a new Seagate 750 Gbyte SATA drive. The motherboard does not recognize the drive, I am wondering if this drive is too big. Any suggestions?

    apologies.. I am totally unsavvy.
    I just bought a new Seagate 1T Sata2 internal hard disk but I can't locate the power and data cables on the motherboard P4M800-m7.
    Does the motherboard come with the cables or I need to buy additional?
    Can anyone help?

No, the size does not matter. When you state the motherboard does not see the SATA drive are you saying the bios does not list the SATA drive? You're 750GB drive is most likely SATA 2.0 / 3.00BG transfer rate.
The P4M800-M7 does support SATA but it does not support SATA 2.0. So what you need to do to get the drive to function at a lower speed. Set to run Ultra 100/133MHz. You'll need help to do this. Try this software for Seagate. It might work for Seagate.

I haven't the time to research Seagates site for simular software.
However you can look through Seagate. Again you want to lower the SATA drive speed to Ultra. The bios will than see the SATA & so will windows.

Hello here is the homepage:

Here is the other version (3.1)

Your mainboard supports P-IDE and SATA drives.

A large ide drive, is hard to find, but a sata drive does
come up to 3 tb.
But it depends what windows system you have.
Windows xp, supports up to 2 tb, with the latest service pack installed.

Good luck

Hello,Please check the BIOS to see if the SATA ports are enabled. Older boards will disable the sata ports in the BIOS by default. To enter the BIOS, hit the DEl key as soon as you boot the PC.
If ports are enabled, then you probably have to format the drive.Heres how:1. Right-click My Computer and select Manage.
2. Under Storage, click Disk Management on the left pane.
STEP 3 - Format the device / drive / MP3 player
1. Right-click on the 1 TB drive you want to format then select Format.Windows will not recognize the drives file system and will mount it with a drive letter. ex; E:

Hi

Thank you for your query

From what you are describing you are missing the SATA controller

Please do the following

1) Go to www.devicedoctor.com and download and install application
2) Once installed load up and click on begin scan
3) Once it has scanned it will probably pick up missing SATA controller and give you the option to download
4) Download the SATA controller and install
5) Reboot PC and the SATA drive should be recognised

System won't recognize SATA drive


Seagate shows you're did not come with a jumper.
http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=63557ea70fafd010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD&locale=en-US
Try removing the jumper. Check if bios see's the drive. Most motherboards that do not support SATAII will automatically reduce the drive/split the SATAII down to 150MB's. If you had or have another SATA & the bios saw or see's the SATA than it's not the motherboard's SATA controller. Take some time & go through Seagate's trouble shooter site.

If the bios did find another SATA other than the ST3750640AS-RK than it's possible the drive has an issue & may need to be exchanged.

Lets hope it's the drive & not the motherboard controller.
