Welcome to FixYa!

here is what you do
1.unplug the power of your hard disk from main board
2.try to use another power cable from the board to your hard drive check if it isn't loose connection
3.then switch the SATA cable in any two middle ports of your board ,, not lower or upper.
4. start PC and enter into bios . check in drive configuration that is your hard disk being detected by the main board or not , if it detects and shows your hard drive space e.g MAXTOR S2154213 500GB
then restart system and do your work ..

Connections to the hard drive


The Harddrive is a SATA unit.

Uses a SATA data cable, and a SATA power cable.

SATA data cable, and connector on motherboard, example;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

Between the SATA data cable connector, and the SATA power cable connector; the SATA data cable connector is the shorter of the two in width.
SATA data cable connector has 7-pins.
SATA power cable connector has 15-pins.

The connector end used on the harddrive side, and optical drive side, (CD/DVD drive), is usually a 90 degree Bent Elbow.
The connector end that plugs into the motherboard, is a Straight connector.

NOTE* Color of connectors does NOT matter.
Most of the time the SATA data connectors on the motherboard, are different colors.

This is to help discern what number of SATA data connector it is.
Four SATA data connectors on the motherboard?

SATA 1, SATA 2, SATA 3, and SATA 4;
Or:
SATA 0, SATA 1, SATA 2, and SATA 3?

SATA 0, or SATA 1, is usually reserved for the Harddrive.
The Primary harddrive with the Operating System on it.
(Unless you have harddrives set in a RAID configuration)

DOES NOT MATTER WHAT SATA DATA CONNECTOR, you plug into, on the motherboard.

Want to plug the harddrive into SATA 3, or SATA 4?
Go ahead.
NO matter what SATA connector on the motherboard that you plug into, BIOS will find the harddrive.

Note the L-shape in the connector.
Has to line up on the L-shape on the harddrive, optical drive, or motherboard, SATA data connector.

There is usually a lock on the connector. This you may not see.
Sometimes there is a little 'bump' on the connector. Depress with the thumbnail to install the cable, or remove.

This is an example of a SATA power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

NOTE*
IF, your SATA harddrive has a provision for plugging in a SATA power cable, AND a 4-pin Peripheral power cable; ONLY plug the SATA power cable in.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Using BOTH types of power cables will BURN the harddrive up.
May not happen right away, but I assure you it will happen.

Cannot find the sata plug on motherboard


A SATA harddrive uses a SATA power cable,

(15-pins, long connector. Harddrive side connector is usually a 90 degree elbow,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

Cables are usually Red with Black connectors, but cable, and connectors can be ANY color )

,and a SATA Data cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SATA

A SATA Data cable has the shorter connector. It has 7-pins.

{ SATA power cable provides power to the SATA harddrive.
The SATA Data cable is the information cable. Data,..information, is transferred back, and forth across this cable }

This is a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable. The connector on the end of the cable is referred to as a 'Molex' connector.
(It is a misnomer. Molex was the first design name, from the first company who made it. The name stuck. Kind of like calling an open-end adjustable wrench, a Crescent wrench ),

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

IF, the SATA harddrive has a provision for plugging in a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, AND a SATA power cable,

ONLY USE JUST THE SATA POWER CABLE

Otherwise you will burn up the SATA harddrive. (Maybe not right away, but I assure you it eventually will happen)

The connectors on the end of the SATA power cable, and SATA Data cable, have an L shape on the inside.

This L shape needs to be matched up with the L shape on the harddrive for the SATA power cable, and harddrive AND motherboard, for the SATA Data cable.

The beauty of SATA technology;

IF, there is more than one SATA connector (Header) on the motherboard, the harddrive can be plugged into ANY one of them.

For example if there are 4 SATA headers on the motherboard;
They can be labeled SATA 1, SATA 2, SATA 3, and SATA 4,
OR,
SATA 0, SATA 1, SATA 2, and SATA 3.

The harddrive usually plugs into SATA 0, or SATA 1.

With the SATA technology however, you can plug into ANY of them, and BIOS will find the device. (In this case a harddrive)

For the HP Compaq Business Desktop D330 computer, the motherboard is an Asus A8SN-CF (HP/Compaq name = Phoenix),

http://h10010.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c00858789&product=321856#N31

All I see is one SATA header (Connector) on the motherboard. It is at the top right area, and is Black in color.
(Right below the thin green label on the edge of the motherboard, at the top. Third connector from the right)

Go down, and click on the + sign to the left of -
Motherboard Layout.

Look at the Top, and third connector over from the Right side.
You can barely make out - SATA1.

Motherboard installed in the computer case, the SATA 1 header (Connector) is at the Bottom of the motherboard.
Third connector (Black) over from the left side.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
(Remember, there is NO such thing as a silly question)

My sata has been removed fram my motherboard, only the yellow colour plastic, but the seven pins are their in a motherboard so give me the solution, please fast


Hi shaqi0078666

Meaning now,
pin SATA on SATA port for SATA ports left and you were broken.
what about the other SATA port?
if there is, use the other SATA port for your SATA and SATA cut the pin is left, do not let it come into contact with another pin.
If you do not have SATA ports. you must try to improve by changing the SATA port on the sata port. or you can use sata to ide converter to install a SATA hard disk to your motherboard..

thanks&regards

Im just about to buy a SATA II 500GB hard disk for this MB, i need to know if this would be compatible with the MB??! Thanks


SATA 2 (SATA 300) is not backwards compatible with a SATA (SATA 150) controller. In order to use a SATA 2 drive on a SATA (SATA 1?) controller, the hard drive must have a jumper position to restrict it to using SATA (SATA 150), and a jumper must be installed. Some drives have the jumper position available (e.g. some recent Samsung), some don't (e.g. some recent Maxtor).
This information can also probably be easily found on your hard drive manufacturer's web site.
If your drive does not have the jumper position available, you must return it and get a SATA 2 one that does, or a SATA drive.

PCI Card for SATA I VS SATA II


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.
