can't get my sata working on P5B please help

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm not trying to use raid here just a regular sata drive. it is the WD2500SD. I have tried every single sata port there is. all 7 of them nothing works all it says is done detecting drive none found. I've reset the bios back to default, cleared the bios by removing the batt and tried about 3 different sata cables as well as different power cables and nothing.

any help or am I doing something wrong

Have you made sure that SATA is enabled in the BIOS? It could be that when you clear the BIOS that it automaicly sets SATA to disable. Also the drive its self could be bad.

I thinking the HD is bad but I have no way to test as of now. in the bios everything that references sata is set to IDE or auto and it still can't detect a thing.

Did the HDD in question ever work? What is on it?

hard was bought from ebay and was said to be new... though honestly I don't know. I sent a msg to the guy saying it sounds like DOA at this point as I have tried everything I know of and figured the mobo should accept it as long as I don't have anything set to raid

what is AHCD or whatever the option is though for sata other then raid and ide?

Do I interpret correctly, that you merely hooked the HDD up to your equipment and powerd-on your rig?

isn't that just about all you need to do for the bios to recognize it?
as long as the settings in the bios are correct?

Dumb question maybe but...You do have power hooked into the hard drive right? Do they spool up? Any funny noises?

My P5B recognized on boot, then on a second boot it didn't see the drives, however I think it was because I told it to look for RAID when it wasn't there.

It's more than likely a bad drive. I guess you don't have another system to try it out on?

I do have power plugged. I actually have tried about 3-4 different power chords ranging from the true sata power cables, to the 4 plug to sata adaptors. I can't tell if it spins up or not for sure. I know I don't hear anything when I turn the pc on but then again I have had soem hard drives that are like that but work fine though most make some sort of audible noise. with hooking thep ower up right is there any way to hook them up wrong?

as far as computers myself I have a old p4 from 2002 made by gateway which doesn't even support ata 133 much less sata
