PCI Card for SATA I VS SATA II

Hello all. I have 845G motherboard [P4 2.4 Ghz] and I need to add a new SATA harddisk [Seagate 250 GB Baracuda with 3.0Gb/s interface], I belive which makes this HD as SATA II. So for this MB should I prefer PCI cards which support SATA II over the supports SATA I [these are cheaper]. Also any more info on choosing a PCI card would be helpful.

Thanks!!

There are many PCI SATA controller cards out there. Just know that the SATA will not run at the SATA II standard. This is because you're motherboard may not support the bus speed for the SATA II or SATA I. If you current motherboard does not have a SATA port built on it, than your not going to see the speed the drive is able to run. Click this link (a Google search for PCI SATA II controller cards). http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=PCI+SATA+II+controller+cards&btnG=Search

Watch out for PCI-X. This is not the same as a PCI slot.
PCI-X slots are only found on motherboards that have SATA I & SATA II slots on them. These PCI-X slots are the smaller SATA slots found inbetween PCI-Express sloted boards.
Promise controller cards make some of the best controller cards on the market.

I have a MSI-7309 motherboard and I was wondering if there was a pci card that I could get to give me more sata connections then just the 2 that I have filled up.


Hello there,
Yes there is it should look like the image below. They call this raid card or simply PCI SATA card it sells for $15 -20++.

pcsyke_113.jpg

There are a lot to choose from, consider your requirements some cards do have e-sata or IDE. it also comes with one 18 inch sata cable. Use up to 4 SATA I or SATA II Devices using this SATA I Speed Host Adapter, since PCI Bus is not Fast Enough for SATA II Speed if you wish to save money this card will provide you with access to all four SATA Ports at 1.5GB/s per port. Use New 1TB Western Digital Seagate or Hitachi Drives with your older PCI Based computer. supports up to 2TB of Hard Drives.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FIxYa.

My PC don't recognize HD Samsung Sata II 250gb


If you mean the drivers for your SATA harddisk, you should have gotten a CD with your motherboard that contains drivers they might be labeled as RAID, sata, or EIDE controller. when you click that it should prompt you for a floppy disk to put the drivers on, you need to put a floppy disk in drive A and then extract the RAID drivers to your floppy, when installing windows press F6 at the begining of the installation and it will act like it didn't work for a minute and then it will pop up asking you something, you press S and then you will be asked to insert your floppy disk. It might ask you if you want to install the x86 or x64 drivers, x86 is 32bit and x64 is 64 bit, if you don't know which you are using it should tell you somewhere on your windows disk. another option is to get a sata controller that isn't part of your motherboard, it would be a pci-e card and it would come with drivers. I don't know where you could download your drivers from because I think the driver you need is specific to the type of SATA controller your motherboard has in it, but I do know that seagate and western digital have sata drivers available as well for their harddrives so I don't know what to tell you. best shot is your motherboard driver CD.

P4VM800 SATA HDD Problem Plz Help me!!!


Your P4VM800 won't detect a SATA II (3 GB/s) drive, only a SATA I (1.5 GB/s). You basically have 2 options:
1. if you have a friend or colleague with a machine that supports SATA II, install the disk in that machine and us the manufacturer's utility to set the SATA to 1.5 GB/s (Seagate/Maxtor disks, but only these do have a jumper to do the job but SATA is in other respects jumperless). Then you can reinstall the disk in your machine.

2. Buy a host adapter card for SATA II and install it in a free slot in your machine - but may be better to put the money towards a new motherboard.
