Question about Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP1604N 160 GB Hard Drive
I have FoxConn SIS 755 CHIPSET MOTHERBOARD containing a "SIS 5513 UDMA controller under Device Manager under the AtAPTI controllers, and a Samsung Hard Disk drive (HDD) model 1604n 160 gig max interal drive. By my understanding i HAVE a 80 pin conductor cable plugged correctly from my Primary IDE plug on the motheboard to the HDD...the cable reads 300v and some other specs on it. I compared that info to a "80 pin conductor cable" search at Newegg.com through the shopping link. I believe i have the correct cable..I have updated the mobo UDMA CONTROLLER driver to I204A which is a 5.30 mb unzipped file which i had to do a Google search to find..FoxConn support via the website is basically nonexistent. I was told the IDE version of the HDD, which i have, does not require drivers. My computer, when i set to use DMA TRANSFER ACCESS mode, it refuses to boot. it will only work on PIO MODE 4 which is the same thing as ATA100. POst test screen always says, no matter what i adjust in BIOS, "no 80 pin conductor cable connected" I have tried three different brands of the 80 pin cable...yet no results..pls [email protected]

Obviously mobo error, have you tried re setting bios from 'JBAT1' terminal, jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 then back on 1-2. Start up again and set time and select the auto detect HDD in standard bios settings see if correctly identified. save settings and restart pc

I did that..the bios auto reverted back to enabling DMA TRANSFER ACCESS AND DMA BURST MODE.. And after the post test it says "Boot Easy Success..." then it stays stuck there it won't load Windows XP Home. it's the DMA TRANSFER ACCESS that poses the problem still. it still says "no 80 pin conductor cable installed...also..do i have to have two physical hard drives to have a REGULAR SATA drive with it's 1.5 mb per sec performance or better performance? or cann i just have one SATA hard drive and it run the 1.5 mb/per sec performance and I can see it in Device manager\Primary IDE Adapter or Controller listed as SATA or ATA7?..or will i have to buy a MSI mobo for this stupid pc of mine to not say "no 80 pin conductor cable connected to drive 0"..lol..
