PATA hd slave to SATA hd

Before I reinstalled my Vista OS because it was having restart issues, I transferred all the data to a PATA hard drive.. worked fine. After the reinstallation of Vista I slaved it again but now CMOS doesnt see the hard drive. I used a vertical bridge to connect the two hard drives. Ive used it twice, the first time was when I got my new PC with the SATA hd. I bought it to transfer data off my PATA hd. Ive tried everything, moved jumper postions, updated BIOS, nothing works. Any ideas?

Western digital wd2500bevt slave jumper settings


SATA drive position is determined by the plug on the motherboard, not a jumper. Jumper settings are for PATA drives (much older).

Please help me with this


USB 3 has the fastest data transfer speed through a computer with USB 3 port. If your computer does not support USB 3 then it cannot transfer data at USB 3 speeds.
If you install a hard drive into an USB 3 hard drive adapter case and the data transfer speed would depend how fast a hard drive you install in this USB 3 adapter case.
A SATA hard drive is faster than an IDE/PATA hard drive. Make sure you get the correct USB hard drive adapter case with the SATA or IDE/PATA connector that matches the hard drive.

Driver for 180 gb hd


Drivers are not needed for hard drives, whether they be sata, pata, spinning or ssd. Check to make sure that the power cable and the data cables are plugged into the motherboard and hard drive.

Trying to make my seagate barracuda 7200.9 slave


1) Open your computer case
2) On the back of the drive where the connectors are, you have jumpers. These small plastic tabs change the function of your hard drive. All hard drives have a special setup procedure. The information about jumper settings is on the top of the hard drive.
3) Remove plastic tabs and put them according to "Slave" instructions.
4) Connect drive to middle connector of the cord.
5) Connect power supply cord.
6) Secure the drive in place and close computer case.

Also make sure that the main drive is not set as slave.

I want to make my WD1600AAJS hard drive a master hard drive, but the port is diffrent than my other hard drives. what do i do?


A SATA drive cannot be set to master or slave like a PATA drive can. SATA only allows one device per port. If the problem is that you don't have any SATA ports in your computer, you can get a SATA host adapter card for your system, update your motherboard to a motherboard with SATA ports, or get a PATA hard drive.

Jumper setting for slave drive


there is no such master or slave setting when SATA is used.
it is mainly used to tell the motherboard which one is master or slave when connected with IDE cable (PATA).
you don't need to worry about it as you are using a SATA HD.

the boot disk priority can be set in the BIOS
press del or F2 after you press the power button on CPU. you will be put with the BIOS/CMOS setup. go to boot priority and set accordingly, there is also an option to set the default hard disk in case you have more than one HD.

The PC no recognize this disk


though very incomplete data abt ur system config..
however, u gotta know, is ur system compatible handling such..
some system needs the hdd controller driver or firmwire at the time of os install..(eg we press n select driver using F6 while in case of winXP*, in such case u need a floppy n floppy drive)..
bring ur ear closer to the hdd n make sure that it does not make any noise (like 'tuk tuk' or 'kirr kirr')..in such case itz probably gone bad n need to b replaced..
in some cases, if more than one hard disk r running, esp in case of PATA, look for jumper settings..(master/slave)..
in some cases, if more than one hard disk r running, esp in case of PATA+SATA, look for bios settings if is in native/compatible/enhanced mode, try fixing as necessary..
if ur nt a professional, contact ur system admin/vendor....

Hard drive Problem


as long as your primary drive is protected with a virus software dont worry about it. Unplug your cd rom ribbon cable and interface the other infected drive to ide1 or ide 0 whichever way dont try to master slave them. Let windows see the other drive as another drive, then the software should handle the infection.

Pending on the infection you've got the partitions may or may not matter, your better off with a solid parition, less seek times to the data anyway.

Transferring an internal hard drive to another computer


Hi,

There are several ways but the easiest would be to use an external USB interface such as a VANTEC CB-ISATAU2 SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter or any comparable product. This would provide the IDE connections to your old hard drive as well as a USB cord to your new PC's USB port. This is of course assuming that all you would want is access to the files/data in the old hard drive.

If your plan is to use the old hard drive as the master (meaning you want to boot from it and use your old OS with its settings on the new PC), chances are you would need to reinstall/repair the old OS since it would not run in the new PC.

If you want to install the old HD as a permanent device inside the new PC, you would need an IDE connector and install the old HD as a secondary master/slave.

If you just need to copy/move files from the old HD to the new PC, the initial method would be your best bet. The interface can be borrowed for a one time use.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
