Advice 1: How to connect sata ide adapter

IDE is a legacy connector for connecting hard disks and drives for CDs and DVDs. In modern motherboards it is increasingly rare. Therefore, owners of such devices, problems can arise when connecting them with more modern components. Most often, these problems are solved with the help of adapters, converters.

Instruction
1
Buy adapter SATA-IDE.
2
Unplug the power cord and all connection cables of your computer. Open the cover of the system unit. For a few seconds touch the radiator. This is necessary in order to get your hands a charge of static electricity, otherwise it can damage sensitive computer components.
3
Take the SATA cables required for connection to the motherboard of your adapter. The SATA ribbon cable is usually about 25 inches in length, often red. You can easily recognize this connector: a width of about cm, flat, with a slight bend at one edge. Both sides of the SATA cables are equal, so it doesn't matter which side you stick in the motherboard and some in the adapter.
4
Will also need a IDE cable to connect your CD-ROM drive or hard disk to the Converter. IDE flat ribbon cable, the width of about 5 centimeters, with hard plastic connectors in two rows of holes. Usually has three connectors, one away from the other two. This connector is used to connect to the motherboard or to a controller.
5
Look on the motherboard any free SATA connector. They form correspond to the SATA cables, just surrounded by a protective frame, which can help you correctly connect the cable. Plug one end of the cable into the motherboard and the other to your adapter.
6
Connect the IDE ribbon cable with your device (floppy or hard disk) and an adapter SATA-IDE. The adapter plug far the single end of the train and drive one of the free connectors on the other side.
7
Note: on cable on your floppy drive there is a group of six pin contacts which can be connected by a little plastic jumper — jumper. With the top or bottom side of the drive near the pins you will find mark MA/SL/CS. If you don't have jumpers, then you need do nothing. If there is a jumper, pull it up and install the mark CS. It is necessary to correctly detect your device.
8
Connect the white rectangular connector from the power supply to your drive. If the adapter has a white rectangular socket with four pins, connect another connector from the power supply to it. Insert the floppy or hard disk in case your system unit if you have it removed.
9
Plug the power cable, cables from keyboard, mouse and monitor. Turn on the computer, your adapter is ready for operation.

Advice 2 : How to connect the ide cable

Hard drives, disk drives for reading and burning CDs with IDE slot now available in much smaller quantities than before. In the new system the blocks hard to find a place to accommodate such devices. However, you can still see the computers that use this type of connector. When connecting it is necessary to consider some features.
How to connect the ide cable
Instruction
1
Find the connector for the IDE cable on the CD - and dvd - it looks like a rectangle with two rows of short pins, a total of 40 pieces. Strictly speaking, IDE — the title is not entirely accurate and in any case, remember the other names of this interface: PATA, EIDE, Parallel ATA. This will help you choose and buy the right cable in the store.
2
Turn off your computer and unplug the power cord. Before you remove the cover of the system unit, touch the battery to remove static electricity which can damage electronic components of the computer. Remove the side cover of the system unit.
3
First, locate the IDE connector on the motherboard to which you want to connect loop. On different models fit the IDE connection can be in different place, sometimes this connector is displayed on the side.
4
Take your IDE ribbon cable. You will see three connectors, one of them at a greater distance from the other two. It was his need to stick in a place to connect on the motherboard. If the connectors on the Board not one, but two, can use any at your discretion.
5
Connect the IDE ribbon cable to the motherboard. Please note that the pad that surrounds the pin has a small notch. And exactly the same ledge there is on the plastic part of the plume. Turn the loop right-side-up and insert. Do not need to exert great effort - if you try too hard, you can break the motherboard.
6
Now connect the device that has an IDE connection. In contrast to the new drives and hard drives that are connected by a thin SATA cable and that it is impossible to connect the wrong connectors IDE require care. On the train there is a group of contacts in the form of six pins. They are usually labeled as CS/MA/SL. If you look closely, the two contacts can be closed by a plastic jumper - it is called "jumper".
7
If you have the ribbon cable will only connect one device, remove the jumper and connect the cable to any of the available connectors to your floppy drive or hard drive. If you have multiple drives and the desired does not work, try another connector.

Advice 3 : How to enable sata controller

If for some reason your computer stopped "seeing" the hard drive, there are several reasons for the occurrence of this fault. Winchester is out of order, the power cable and data cable connected properly-in BIOS disabled the satacontroller. In the first option you'll likely have to change the device, and the second test cable in the third — to correctly set the BIOS settings.
How to enable sata controller
You will need
  • - administrator rights.
Instruction
1
Go into the BIOS of the computer. To do this, immediately after switching on, press Del on the keyboard. On some motherboards a special key to enter BIOS may be different — read the instructions on the screen after turning on the computer. Usually the first time may not work, so will need to try again. Try immediately after turning off the computer more often to press the button.
2
After you enter the section of the BIOS look for Integrated Peripherals or any, which in meaning corresponds to the integrated devices. In this paragraph are points of configuration parameters relating to the internal capabilities of the motherboard. Find the entry for Onboard SATA Controller. Or any entry containing the word SATA Controller. Check out the options for this parameter — this is typically Enabled and Disabled, Enabled, and Disabled, respectively. Take care to set all the parameters. To confirm, press the Enter key.
3
Set Onboard SATA Controller to set it to Enabled and save the changes to BIOS by pressing F10 and enter, or going to the Exit option and then clicking Save changes. If you press this button, the system automatically prompts you to save any changes that were made. After you restart the computer again go into the BIOS like I did in the first paragraph and check if it detects the hard drive. This can be done in paragraph or Standard CMOS Features Standard CMOS Setup, usually the item is first in the list. In General we can say that to enable the satacontroller on your personal computer is not difficult, the main thing - to understand a little bit in the system BIOS.

Advice 4 : How to connect ide and sata the Winchester

Sometimes you need to connect multiple internal hard drives to one system unit. The problems begin only if the disks have different formats: IDE and SATA.
How to connect ide and sata the Winchester
You will need
  • adapter IDE-SATA.
Instruction
1
Don't worry to connect to one motherboard hard drives with different formats quite easily. Remove the wall of the system unit and examine the ports on the motherboard.
2
The fact that quite often even those models of motherboards that have the main hard drive connected via a SATA channel, IDE ports. Most often it connects to the DVD drives. Find such connectors.
3
If one of them is connected the drive, unplug it and use the vacated train and connect a new hard drive.
4
If such a port is free, get a train (if not present) and connect it to the hard drive.
5
Do not despair, if your motherboard contains only SATA or only IDE. There are special connectors that allow you to connect hard drives with alternative ports. Purchase the appropriate adapter.
6
Bought plug in connector Flex cable coming from the motherboard. Connect the connector with the hard drive.
7
Turn on the computer. To enter the BIOS press the Del key. Open the Boot Device Priority menu. Assign your old Winchester (where operating system is installed) primary device at startup.
8
Save the changes by selecting Save & Exit. Wait for loading the operating system. You will most likely automatically install the driver for the new hard drive. After it completes, verify that the connected Winchester.
Note
Relatively older model motherboards may not detect the connected through adapter SATA-Winchester.
There may be an incorrect reading of information from such a disk, with the result that it will be available not completely.
Useful advice
Before purchasing connectors, verify that you can connect power to the hard drive.
