    as far as i can tell all of the ide cables are set to auto detect and all of the SATA ports are also on auto detect.  I have windows XP running from an ide master and i also am trying to install a SATA 500 GB Western Digital HDD and i was wondering if this was even possible with a Biostar P4m800-M7?
    Please e-mail me if you have an answer at

ASUS K8V-MX mother board can support seagate 500gb

Yes, it has Serial ATA support (as well as Parallel ATA) so go ahead and use it.
Whether you will need a Molex 4-pin power cable or a converter (to SATA power specification) is dependent on the age of the drive (whether it has a molex connector or a sata clip) and what you have available at your power supply.

Just check with the manufacturer's manual for motherboard. If it is a new BIOS then it will support this.

Hard disk not detecting

It is very likely that your motherboard is not capable of handling large HDDs. Too bad, friend. Use a smaller one, or may be two of them.
