Error Detecting New Hard Drive

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, I just got ahold of a new HDD I'd like to use as a secondary drive for music/video storage and such.

Now, this is a 160GB 7200RPM Ultra ATA Drive. I use SATA for my current 250GB Drive. I plugged it into the ATA port that is beside the Red ATA port on my Motherboard. Note that the Red ATA port on my Motherboard is being used by my DVD and DVD/RW drives. This isn't the 3 1/2 inch Floppy Disk Drive port is it-- Because the BIOS are detecting it as such. Not quite sure what I've done wrong. Do I need an ATA Extention to plug this in and use it?

The Auto-HDD detect on my other IDE ports did not detect this Drive at all for further notice.

Did you try playing with the jumpers on your DVD-ROM/RW drives and HDD? Set all of them to "cable select" (there should be a label on the drive somewhere that tells you the different jumper settings)

Then set your boot order to boot off the FDD first, the HDD, then off the DVD-ROM/RW

Is the 34-pin floppy connection above the ram? If not try that slot.

Well, I assumed the FDA slot was for floppy disks, and I haven't played with the jumpers, generally, I stay away from that unless I wiping my BIOS memory or something. Exactly which jumpers should I mess with?

The jumpers on the back of your hard drives. Alot of ppl i've talked to were surprised that hard drives and dvd-rom drives had jumpers
