How do I get this mother board to reconginse an E-SATA to sata adapter

Q: How do I get this mother board to reconginse an E-SATA to sata adapter

The mother board is an ASUS P5Q? I know the adapter is working because I can hook the cable that comes from the case to another sata slot shut down turn the enclosure on and boot and I have a third hard drive. But that is not how I would like to do it. If the mother board would recognize the enclosure it would give me an icon in the tray to shut it off and I would not have to reboot to back up something.


Thank u for any help

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Is it possible to take the power supply that has both ide and Sata cable and hook it up to a mother board that has only ide? And be able to use the sata out of the power supply to hook up a new hard drive?
 

A:power supply with sata to ide only mother board?

As long as the power supply has all the plugs needed for the system and hard drive its going into then yes. There's also adapters and splitters you can buy as well like this: http://www.usb-ware.com/sata-power-adapter-lp4satafm.htm (the reverse is also available)

A:Adapter to connect SATA HD to motherboard with no SATA connection?

You can always use one of these PCI SATA adapter cards: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...ESTMATCH&N=-1&isNodeId=1&Description=pci+sata

A computer as old as you're describing will likely have an old type standard PCI slot, and NOT a PCI-E (PCI express). be certain to verify which slot you have, before you make a purchase. These are two entirely different interfaces, which are not interchangeable.

I managed to get hold of part 01HY319 for my trusty T460 and all works fine. It looks like this and converts from an NVME M.2 drive (M-key) to SATA Express connection on the motherboard.  SATA Express is only x2 PCI lines (rather than the 4 you get with "full" NVME support) so I was interested in performance. Performance before with a 1TB Crucial MX500 SSD SATA drive was like this  Performance afterwards with the 01HY319 part and a 1TB Samsung 960 Evo NVME drive was like this  Hope this helps anyone considering the upgrade.

Ferngari95 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! While these parts, most likely, CAN be replaced -- the real issue is the cost involved, because not only would you have to pay for the parts (since the Warranty does not cover accidental damage), you would also need to have this done at an HP Certified Service Center and pay them for labor: to diagnose the problem, disassemble the laptop, replace the broken parts, reassemble the laptop, run diagnostics again. The total cost of this work, the parts, and the shipping involved might easily exceed the cost of replacing the laptop. You should see if you can get a cost estimate from one of the Service Centers:  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00372730?jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0004Good Luck

Something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822998001 could be used to convert the IDE to SATA.

Or, you could just add an additional IDE controller card to an available PCI slot.

Hello all,
First post. I'm trying to install a Sedna SE-PCIE-SATA6G-02, PCIE SATA III 2-port adapter into my computer but it doesn't seem to be recognized by Windows 10.

I've recently added an SSD drive to my system and had to load the AHCI driver by booting into safe mode to do so. I'm wondering if I need to do something similar with this. I have run the setup program from the enclosed CD without any luck, and checked that it is the same version as is on the Sedna website. The card/controller does not show up in Device Manager.

I am not running a RAID configuration and I will not be booting from this add-in card. I just want a faster connection for my external hard drive to do back-ups which I connect via an ESATA connection. So far I only have the single SSD and one CD/DVD drive connected to my system.

My system is an MSI K9A2 Platinum V1.0, with an AND Phenom II X4 965 quad processor with 8-GB of ddr3 RAM, and a GTX 780 Ti video card.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hey folks,

I'm trying to hook up a new 1TB hard drive on my old dell dimension 8200. I had both hd slots already filled so I removed the original slave drive to make room, and connected the the new 1TB SATA drive via an adapter that plugs into the slot on the hd and turns into the IDE connection (with pins) and power supply input on the other side,.

The SATA drive came with no jumper, and I read that the jumper settings for SATA had different meanings anyway. Not sure how the motherboard would respond, I started going thru the configs, borrowing the jumper from my old drive to use on the SATA

IDE drive:.....master...master...master..master...master...cable select...cs.....cs
SATA drive:..none......1/2........3/4........5/6.......7/8.......none...........1/2....3/4

etc...

I always get one or more of the following error messages in various combiations.

Primary hard disk drive 0 not found
Primary hard disk drive 1 not found
Plug and play configuration error (x3)

Then I gave up and hooked my old drive back up the original way and it was recognized and the OS booted without hesitation.

So... Anyone have any experience connecting SATA drives to IDE and/or can offer some insight? I must have my TB of storage
***update*** I found the master/slave jumper on the adapter. tried both settings, no luck there either. more specifically: drive 0 (ide) set to master, no jumper on the sata drive itself, tried both settings on adapter.
 

A:connecting a SATA HD to an IDE cable/board

I don't know about connecting SATA drives to IDE connector.. You'd propably have better luck getting a add-on PCI SATA controller card, or a USB cable to connect it. The onboard IDE controller propably won't understand how the SATA drive is configured... Although the adapter is supposed to make it.

Don't suppose there's a way to make a sata drive work in a board that is for IDE hard drives?

Had to ask.... lol
 

A:SATA Hard Drive in an IDE Board?

There are a couple ways.

There are PCI cards that let you use a SATA drive through the PCI bus.

There are also SATA to IDE adapters.

Either way you'll likely lose some of the SATA speed, going through extra devices, especially the cheaper ones slightly effects your performance.

I just built myself a system with an ASUS P4P800S-X mainboard, and for storage I'm using a Western Digital WD800JD SATA hard drive in addition to a Maxtor 32049H2 PATA drive.

Over the past few weeks, there have been about four instances where the system has completely frozen, and immediately preceding that freeze was a "click" like the hard disk powered down. In the Event Viewer, I have also seen multiple instances of Error #11 (controller error on my WD drive) and a couple instances of Warning #51 (error while in a paging operation, for the same drive).

I've run diagnostics on both my hard drives and regularly monitor SMART attributes and drive temperature. Everything's in perfect shape in every way -- EXCEPT for those errors reported by Windows and the mysterious crashes.

Now, I've searched forums all across the 'Net, and I have found a couple other people who have had this same problem with the combination of a WD SATA hard disk and the ASUS P4P800S-X mainboard. I haven't found any updated drivers for either piece of hardware, and ASUS hasn't released a BIOS update.

My question is this -- does anyone else have the combination of a P4P800S-X and a WD SATA drive, and if so, have you encountered this problem? The crashes happen rather infrequently, but they come at rather awkward times (watching a DVD, accessing the Internet, running Windows Media Player or Winamp, etc). Also, the "click" concerns me.

A:Issues with P4P800S-X board and WD SATA drives

The same problem...

Yes, I had the same problem. During game play, sometimes even in the menu, and with the 3D text screen saver running my system would freeze with the hdd light on preceded by a "twang" from the hard drive, requiring a reboot. The motherboard was a P4P800S-X and a WD800JD SATA hard drive. The P4P800S-X seems to have a problem controlling a SATA hard drive. I chased this problem for days thinking it was a video problem. Then I removed the SATA hdd and installed an IDE hdd and it worked fine. I have since returned that motherboard and upgraded to a P4P800E-Deluxe + another WD800JD and set it up for RAID-0. With this new set-up I haven't had a problem. I would suggest that you consider upgrading your motherboard (the probable culprit) or doing as you have stated and avoid a SATA hdd. This really sucks for Asus, they're suppose to be "top of the line". They don't even show P4P800S-X on their products list anymore, they kinda "swept it under the rug".

Hi all,
So my second query is regarding the SATA ports on the board.
Currently I have a 250gb Samsung SSD and a HGST 1TB 7200rpm drive with no optical.  The two drives are connected via SATA 3 and SATA 4 ports.
SATA 1 and SATA 2 ports are empty.
First question is, is this correct or should the drives be connected via SATA 1 and 2?
My aim is to add a third 512GB SSD essentially wanting:
256: OS boot drive + documents512: Junk drive (downloads/temp etc)1TB: Either remove it or keep it and hold backups of the above + drive image
With the 4th SATA port, most likely a future optical drive such as bluray writer.
So it's just making the config correct for the above - like the memory thread, it's purely knowing what the numbers indicate - ie: logic dictates you start at 1 and finish at 4 but hardware logic I'm sure differs :)

Thanks in advance

Referring to article: http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/windows/t-18558-Issues-with-P4P800SX-board-and-WD-SATA-drives.html.

The error you?re getting (click and temporary freeze of the system) is a conflict with your AGP graphics cards; because, it cannot pass the 3D Mark 2001SE.

Go to DriverGuide.com and update the BIOS for the P4P800S-X board. You will download an extractable file to create a boot-up disk. Make sure nothing interrupts that update; because, you can render your mother board useless.

After the update, the board will operate like it should running the SATA drives.

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if you can help me with an Issue I'm having.

Have a PC with an EPOX EP-8RDA6+PRO NF2 board with 2 Nvida Sata / 4 Silicon Image Raid Sata ports.

Has an AMD Athlon XP 3000+, 1.5GB of Memory, and AGP ATI All-In-Wonder 9600xt.

I am trying to convert it to a Server for our home network by installing 2 Seagate 1TB hard drives.

Primary drive is a 160GB Seagate IDE drive and also there is a IDE DVD+RW drive installed.
Whenever I try to start the machine from being powered down, it goes through post, identifies the IDE drives, then sits there and then Identifies the SATA drives (which I have on the 2 NVIDIA SATA ports).

After that, it just hangs and does nothing.

Now if I push the restart button on the case, it will go through just like it should and start up.

It seems like it's almost taking too long for the SATA drives to spin up and it's causing it to hang up the POST.

Anyone have any ideas or solutions to this?

I did only have a 300 watt power supply in there and thought maybe it was too weak for all those drives and devices so I swapped in a 420 watt and it is still doing the same thing.

While it's intended as a server, I don't want it on 24X7, so I have it set so it will Wake on LAN, but it won't work when I can't get past POST. So right now I'm stuck.

Anyone seen an issue like this before?
 

A:SATA drives won't pass POST on NForce2 board

Since the MB is a few years old, it probably has a SATA v1 controller and it's not recognizing the new SATA v2 HDDs you've installed.

Check with Seagate to find out if there's a way to resolve it. Some HDDs have a jumper to set it to the older SATA v1 throughput. Others require a software application to configure it to work with older SATA v1 controllers.

I received my new Plextor PX716SA SATA drive (hope I have the model # right - it's the dual-layer SATA drive). Put simply, I cannot boot the system if this drive is attached.

My board is an Asus k8V-Deluxe. I have three other SATA devices, all three are hard drives, and they are recognized and run fine.

However, if I plug the Plextor into the Promise 20378 controller (running in IDE mode), it fails during bios boot, detection phase, with a message that my hardware is misconfigured. This happens on either drive, and I've checked the connections and all.

If I plug it into the VIA VT8237 Southbridge connectors, it'll detect, but I'm not sure it's detecting correctly - it sees it as a Plextor during detection, but in the BIOS Boot Devices screen it shows "MBA UNDI (Bus0 Slot)" - but partway through booting into windows, it'll fail with an Inaccessible_Boot_Device error. I've tried disabling it in the BIOS Boot Priority screen, but still get the same error.

System boots perfectly fine as long as the SATA cable for that device is unplugged.

Anybody have any advice? Anyone know for sure if this board is compatible with this drive? Can't seem to find anything that says yea or nay.

Appreciate any help/advice. I did go to Plextor's site, but it wasn't any help.

Oh, and it's getting juice, I can open/close the door and the light comes on during boot.

A:Solved: Problem with Plextor SATA drive on Asus board

It could be defective. I once had a modem that would make Windows freez on startup. I also had this problem on a CD-Rom drive that went bad on me. It just may not working right. Send it back, where-ever it came from and try another.

x-posted to r/thinkpad Thinkpad P51. My goal is to remove the HDD platter and replace it with a 2.5" SSD. I thought that the hard part was going to be not to break any of the plastic clips when removing the back cover : ) I watched this vid: http://download.lenovo.com/lts/RTPW1410/FOF/RTPW1410-P50_REM_FRU_03_HardDiskDrive.mp4 and also read about it in the HW manual. It sure seems easy enough but this is the first time I am doing this. Prior experience was on older notebooks where the HDD just "slid" away from the system board.The video seems to imply that you can just lift the plastic tab of the sata connector and lift up and away from the system board. When I tried that I met with a lot of resistance and it felt like I was a second away from ripping the plastic tab right off of the connector. I tried to see if I could work a spudger somewhere in there to help lift it up but I could not find any way to do that. Suggestions and hand holding most welcome. Thank you. https://imgur.com/a/9xcUPwB https://imgur.com/a/Jc50NjV

Im lost. I have an external hard drive that I use for school. I need to connect it to my computer at home. It has IDE cables. Im not sure which to get for it. Help?
 

A:SATA Adapter

Cheaper than an actual adapter (and faster)would be a PCI SATA controller card. This one has IDE connections as well. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816124009
Note that versions costing less than 35$ only come with SATA1 speed.

Hello,

I recently bought a USB to SATA/IDE adapter so I could backup data from several old laptop IDE HD's. Worked great! Now I am trying to use on standard IDE hard drives and I can't veiw the data. The system i'm using is running XP. Would anyone now why these hard drives show up in Device Manager as being seen as hardware but no data can be viewed?

Thanks in advance for any support on this matter!

I am trying to use a usb adapter to move files off my old hard drive (ide) onto my new system (sata). It does not show up in windows explorer but does in disk management. It wants to initialize the drive which brings me to the question of whether or not that will erase my files on old drive which I am trying to access. I have read thru several forums and have seen some yes some no answers, at this point I am totally confused, I can not afford to lose the files on the old drive. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Old drive (with data) is initialized (what OS?) and so should not be or you will lose the data. New drive (empty) may need to be initialized before use.

I just picked up the above adapter. I comes with its own power source. I picked this up to get the info off of a hard drive from my old computer that is dust. The mb is shot but the hd is fine. Now when I hook up a cd/dvd rom drive to this adapter and plug the usb into my new machine with Vista, it detects it and shows the drive and it works, no problem. But when I try the hd it detects it, installs the drivers and then says it is ready to use but the drive or a new mass storage drive letter does not show up. Under device mgr it just shows the title of usb device not mass storage. Again, the attached hd does not show up under my computer so I have nothing to double click on or open to get to my files. Any ideas? My new computer all updated bios and chipset drivers so I'm pretty much set there.
Thanks for any help.

He guys today i buy new optical bluray drive.but its interf with sata and i have ide port..

Pls reply fast

A:sata to ide adapter

if their is only ide then then you will need an adapter so if it slows transfer speed not much you can do about it but get new motherboard. burn speed you will want to burn at the lowest speed anyways to get the best quality burn.

ok here's the deal. I have built my own computer. It's not great, but it does everything I need it to. The only problem I have with it is it only has one ide slot. It has four sata slots open, but none of my stuff has sata plugins. They all have ide. Is there an adapter out there that will convert the sata slots on my motherboard into ide slots? If so what is a good one to use.
 

A:sata to ide adapter?

I think a good solution would be to get a PCI card with IDE controllers. Of course, you need a free PCI slot but the card should have two controllers (connectors) that will handle two IDE devices each.

Click here to see an example of such a card. Mind you, I'm not endorsing this exact card since I don't have one. However, it's to show what I'm talking about.

Hi,
I have an old 80GB WD hard drive (IDE) and I want to use it on my newer PC, which uses SATA. I got a IDE to SATA adapter on eBay, and before I try to hook it up, I wanted to know if there's a high probability of some sort of short circuit or something that may fry my power supply.
I'm not at all concerned about what may happen to the old hard drive, but I am concerned about the rest of my PC.

Thanks for any info on this.

Hi,
I have a brand new core 2 duo system i'm building with an Intel DG965WH board. The only HDD I have and would like to use is IDE/ATA. This is a problem on my board because it is an SATA board. I'm using the only PATA/IDE channel for my optical drive and tried putting the harddrive on that channel as a secondary drive but that gave me alot of problems. A friend recently gave me an adapter that connects to my IDE harddrive and allows me to connect the drive using a SATA connnector. I powered the drive and the device using a floppy power connector in the adapter. When I boot the machine, before I even get a chance to go into BIOS, the system freezes with a black screen and gray solid cursor that doesnt blink. If I disconnect the device, the system boots fine without the harddrive. Any ideas or suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

okay.. some partitioning with PartitionMagic went wrong a few days ago on one of my computers, and it won't boot anymore. In Winternals Disk Commander off of a bootable CD, I can see all of the files that I would like to recover off of my hard drive.. but it won't let me back the data up to anything but a floppy, which obviously isn't an option.

Anyhow.. what I want to do, is to use another hard drive I have, which has XP installed on it, to boot off of, and then rescue the files from the failing hard drive. My motherboard only has SATA connectors though.. and the spare hard drive is IDE. I got an IDE to SATA converter (Syba).. but it's not working.

When I connect the IDE with the adapter, the hard drive is set to master.. all cables are connected.. all power plugged in, but I get an error message.. something like, "Media Check failed. Please check cables."

Anybody know what's going on? I know the hard drive is fine.. I can boot off of it fine on another computer, where the mobo supports IDE drives... Could the converter be the problem?

I can't see the drive in the bios either... I've tried changing a few settings, but nothing seems to remedy my little problem.

Any ideas? I'd be thankful
 

A:IDE to SATA Adapter Problems..

You're saying you don't have any cdrom drives in your computer? That's strange. If you do, remove the cable from one of those and attach the IDE as a slave or if only one cd drive, attach the IDE to that cable as Master.
