SOURCE: can i put a samsung

Unless the motherboard in your system is different from the one shown on HP's site, the answer is no, you can't install the drive. At least you can't install it without additional hardware, which I'll describe in a moment. It looks like this board only has SATA connections for drives, which is becoming more common. So there is no conventional (i.e., old-fashioned) IDE connector for the data cable used by your Samsung drive. There's no place to plug the in the drive.

What you'll need if you want to use a parallel IDE drive is an expansion card like this one. There are many similar cards; I'm just using this one as a sample. The card installs in one of the PCI-E slots on your motherboard, and it provides the IDE connection you need. In addition to the card, you'll need an 80-conductor ATA-133 IDE cable.

With SATA drives, there isn't the master/slave designation since each SATA device has a direct connection to the motherboard. With the parallel cable, you can have two devices connected, so one needs to be designated as the master and the other one as the slave. The master is the drive connected to the plug physically at the end of the cable, and the slave is the middle plug. When you install your Samsung drive, set it for "master" or "single" drive as required. Some drives have a special jumper setting when used alone, while others need to be set as master even if there is no slave drive present. The jumper settings are usually marked on the drive, or you can check at Samsung's website.

Hope this has helped. Thanks for using Fixya!

I believe low level formatting will leave the drive as raw. meaning there is no partition. You need to do an unconditional of quick format such as before installing windows. or install the drive in another working computer and access it through drive management witch will allow you to initialize and format the drive to an NTFS partition.

How can I attach a Samsung hard disk HD080HJ/P to a Dell Optiplex 755 Core 2 Duo E4400 PC computer? There seems to be no master/slave settings on the hard drive.


Newer sata drives do not rely on the master/slave settings that old IDE drives used. Remove the old drive from the bad computer and plug it into an available slot in the new computer. Boot the new computer. Under My Computer/Computer the second drive will show up with the next letter available. Alternately you can buy an external hard drive dock that connects via usb and use that to transfer your files.

Low level format


A low level format is not recommended on a healthy hard drive, it is designed for hardware that is on it's last legs and is aggressive in formatting that it can finish the hard drive.
