Adding SATA Drive
I am trying to add a DVD burner to my new Vista machine ...... Of course I
am trying to install an IDE device with an IDE/SATA adapter.

On bootup I F2 to go into the BIOS and open SATA2 port, SATA0 hard drive,
SATA1 DVD drive.

I open port, install SATA cable to port2, put power cable to drive and power
cable to IDE/SATA adapter.

Reboot ........ light flashes on front for drives .... computer only
recognized DVD? ... Tried add hardware in control panel, does not recognize
drive.

Do I need to set the control jumper to slave? cable select? primary?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Steve

RE: Adding SATA Drive
Hopefully you can select the boot order somewhere in your BIOS or your
IDE/SETA controller card. I would put the IDE drive on the IDE 1 (not 0)
part of the card to hopefully let the card know that it is secondary. If
that dosen't work then make it a slave would be my guess.

RE: Adding SATA Drive
you cannot put a sata drive in ide if you have a sata drive and it is set up
in bios properly then you go into the control panel amin tools storage then
mount the drive hope this helps
