Scsi To Usb Adapter

A few times now i've been stuck wishing that i had a scsi to usb adapter so i could image or pull data from a scsi drive. Currently, i just throw an old hba in my pc and hook up the drive that way. The drives are always 68 or 80 pin.google brings up a few hits and it looks like these were popular years ago, but even then they were very slow and most of the time only had 50 pin connections on them. They seemed to be often used with the old iomega zip and jazz drives and only supported usb 1. 1. I'd like to add one to my recovery kit if possible, but i can't find much info. Thoughts?

Ide Raid Benches Higher Than Scsi 15k Drive

I just put the 15, 000 rpm 36g ibm scsi drive i bought cheap at ubid into a machine (p3-800mhz) onto a lsi logic uw160 controller. I guessed at the jumpers on the drive, closing the mtr set. Installation and formatting (ntfs) went fine. My sandra 2002 disk benchmark is about 35, 000 . On my new machine (p4-2. 55ghz) running the promise fastrack 133 out of the gigabyte ga_8ihxp with 2 maxtor ata133 60g drives in raid 0, i regularly bench about 40, 000 in sandra. Is this due to the much larger size of the array, processor speed, sandra inaccuracies, or something else? I'm not complaining. Both systems are running well, and the ibm drive should work great as a file server. I was just wondering if these numbers reflect reality. I would expect a 15k rpm drive to outperform any ide raid.

Scsi Vs. Sata 150 On Raid

I was looking for hard drives on the next computer i am building and was wondering which is better: a single scsi or two sata 150 hdd on raid. I'm looking at anything about 80 gb up to 200 gb and mostly for performance drives versus storage. The motherboard in the system will be a msi k8n neo 4 platinum and the cpu will be a 3700+.

Asus A8v: Sata Drive Recognized As Scsi

Well i've finally moved out of my shuttle and into a full size atx case. My thanks to freedom eclipse and mkmods for helping me out by selling their old components. So i'm all up and running and now it's just the teething issue(s). Why on earth does xp have to be a dick? I mean, when i got the machine up and running from the very first boot. It worked brilliant. Until another reboot after reinstalling some applications (i.e. 3dmark06) it now says my sata hdd is scsi. Which means i can't use it. Now my mobo has two raid controllers, one via and one promise. I've used both, disabled both (bios and windows) and i still get my soddin' hdd show in device manager as flippin' scsi.

Sata Vs Ide

I understand that using sata is much faster than using an ide. My question is, if i were to use one hard drive for running my os and programs and another just for data, do i have the faster hard drive running my os and programs or holding my data. Would it take more time to find and load a program, or would it take more time to find a file and run it (but the program in most cases like a word document will need to "find" and load up microsoft office anyways). Also, my mobo is not sata compatible. Assuming that i buy an adapter for it (and thereby slowing it down a bit), would i be able to tell the difference in speed between that and just a regular ide 7200 ata drive?

Sata Hd + Ide Hd

I was actually just wondering if there was any downfall to installing sata hd's and ide hd's? I have a motherboard that supports 6 or so sata hd's and i believe 4 ide hd's. Now, since this is a newer computer for me, i did purchase 2 sata hd's and installed them for use with this motherboard. But, i have about 12 or so ide hd's that are just laying around, which all total about 2 tb's worth of storage. So i would like to install some of these as well. Someone i was talking with at one point, mentioned not to install the ide ones as it would affect performance. So i guess i wanted to see if that was true.

Ide To Sata Converter

So, i'm going to install as many drives as i can in my machine. Right now since my last upgrade, i have about 10 ide drives just laying around. I came across these ide to sata converters and had a few questions:

1) has anyone here used a converter such as this? If so, any problems?

2) what would be the pros/cons for using one of these?

3) are there any other sites that you would personally recommend for this converter as opposed to what i linked above? I'd rather purchase from a company that others have used than one i haven't heard of. Also, a question, not necessarily regarding this converter:

When a hard drive is connected, but not necessarily being accessed, does it still draw quite a bit of power from the power supply, or is it minimal? In other words, i have a 560w power supply, and wanted to make sure adding the max number of drives wouldn't draw too much on the psu. (Think my max for this motherboard is 6 sata + 4 ide). But then again, i know i have other components that do use quite a bit of power, so may decide to upgrade my psu at some point, but figured i'd at least inquire.

Ide 2.5/3.5 - Sata 2.5/3.5 To Usb

I'm looking for a ide 2. 5/3. 5 & sata 2. 5/3. 5 to usb adapter for my bench. I've found a bunch of ide 2. 5/3. 5 and sata 3. 5 to usb combo adapters, but they don't seem to include the 2. 5 sata power adapter (4 pin sata). They claim to support 2. 5 sata but i don't see the power cable in the pictures. Does anyone have one of these, or know of one? I'm looking for someone who actually has one and knows for 100% certain it works for all 4 types of drives. I don't care if it's an adapter or docking station (but docking station would be nice.

Ide And Sata Hard Drive

So i just installed a 320 gb ide hard drive with a 200 gb sata and plan on making a clean format to both drives. Which drive is better to put my personal files on and which is better to put windows xp pro on. I will be playing lots of games on this computer.

Sata / Ide Drive Installation

My mate gave me his computer to upgrade for him as he wanted to have another hd for storage installed but i'm having a wee bit of trouble to get it installed !

He already has a hd installed with a sata connection and his dvd/dvd-rw drives were installed into ide 1. He bought a hard drive that wasn't sata but ide and i thought it would connect ok so i changed the dvd/dvd-rw drives to ide 2 and installed the hd in ide 1 with the jumper set to 'slave'. Switched the computer back on and it got as far as testing the memory and then nothing, couldn't even access the bios. So, i swapped the ide connections round so the hd was in ide 2 and the dvd drives were back into ide 1, switched the computer back on and it boots up fine but only recognises the sata - no second hard drive, no dvd drive and no dvd-rw drive. I can't figure out what's wrong with it. Its usually the other way around, and that sata isn't being recognised ! Anybody any ideas ?

Ide Drives In Sata Only Computer

I've got a couple ide hard drives and i would like to continue using them for storage rather then just letting them sit around unused. However my current computer doesn't have any ide ports or molex power connectors. I've been looking around for items that would allow me to continue use the drives however i'm having trouble finding anything that actually looks reliable. While full speed usage would be nice, i would be happy just so long as i can find a way to use them. So i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to go about this without using poorly designed parts that are more likely to destroy the drives then let me continue using them.

Sata To Ide Adaptor Problem

This is a dell spx 400 pentium® d processor 820 2. 8ghz, 2mb l2 cache, 800mhz fsb with dual core
Intel® 945p chipset

Purchased a syba serial ata / sata to sbsatad
http://www.Dealsurprise.com/syseatasatoi.html

The bios recognizes a wd 800 hd when it's hooked up. When you exit the bios it gives a "no boot device available" message. If you enter bios setup again and exit with no changes it boots to the sata 0 hd and life is good. The 80 gig wd shows as drive f and is fully functional. If you restart or soft boot it will not get past the no boot device message even going into setup. If , however, you do a shut down or unplug power and restart, the no device message appears and you can enter setup once again and make no changes for another successful boot. Yikes ! No idea what to do. There is no way to stop the raid from looking for what it calls signed drives. Two optical drives take up the one ide controller. Have tried different sata ports with no change. This makes rebooting for installs tedious. The wd 800 only talks to the adapter if it is selected as master as per the scant instructions.

Raptor Sata 10k Rpm Vs Seagate Ultra160 15k Rpm Scsi

Ok, will you really notice much difference between the two drives. I am thinking for my second system to just add a raptor sata rather than pulling my seagates out of another system. They are on a 39160 card. Any thoughts?

Ide To Sata Host Controller Card

After getting a lot of help from novax in this section of the forums, i now know what items i need to get my computer to recognize my new hd (which isn't compatible with my old motherboard. Now, i've already ordered the proper data cable and i found an ide to sata host controller card for sale.

If anyone knows how it gets inserted into my motherboard, or if i'm wrong and it gets inserted elsewhere, i would appreciat the help.

Best Way To Clone A Hard Drive Ide To Sata

I just got a new hard drive and i want to simply clone it without reinstalling anything. I've been out of the loop as i usually just reinstall everything. The reason i'm not doing it this time is i'm going to wait till windows 7 is out, and i hopefully will also have the money to raid ssd's at that time as well. My old hard drive is ide, my new one sata. What's the best free way to go about doing this?

Usb 2.0 To Sata Ide Cable Does Not Work

I tried to use new branded "r-driver iii" usb 2. 0 to sata ide cable device with laptop hd and desktop hd (i set it to slave) but it did not show me the hd , although i checked disk management. I thought the problem with " r-driver iii ", about another one branded as "ritmo". Still the same problem is going on with both hard disks. Both hard disks are working if i hook them into a computer.

Sata Hdd With Ide Dvd Rom

I just got a sata hard drive, and im wondering if the dvd rom drive needs to be connected to the hard drive, or just the motherboard? Because when i try to install the os on that computer, the drive does not detect any hard drives.

Hooking Up Ide Hdd On Sata Port

I already have 1 sata hd on port 1, got a 160gb ide wd hd, had to hooked it up on port 2 using a sata adapter. Got it to work fine. But my question is, should i just leave it there or should i hook it up to a regular ide port?

Configurations:-
Nf7-s rev 2
Amd 2400+ m @ 2400mhz
3200 ocz 200x12
Pioneer dvd-rw / hooked to ide 2
Ide 1 has no drive connected to. Wd 80gb sata / port 1
Wd 160gb ide / port 2 (<- should i leave it there or no?)

I will eventually get a hold of another 80gb wd to raid them up. Mean while though, got this dilemma now to deal with.

Asus P4p800 - Sata And Ide At Same Time

I have 2 hard drives and 2 optical running on the ide channels of my p4p800 board - the hard drives on primary, and the optical on secondary. I want to add a sata hard drive (74 gb raptor) to my configuration, and make it my boot drive. Obviously, to do so i would need to use the sata, primary ide, and secondary ide all at the same time. I've seen some conflicting information in different places, including here, so here's what i want to know. 1. Is it possible to run both ide and sata at the same time?

2. What quirks should i know about if i'm trying to do this? (I've heard of people having problems getting the sata drive to be the boot drive, for example)

3. Can i use both primary and secondary ide channels while using sata? I read on another forum somewhere that certain gigabyte models allow you to use primary ide or sata, but not both at the same time; i want to make sure that won't be a problem with my asus board. 4. If i can't run all my sata and ide devices at once directly through the mobo, will a controller card allow me to? If so, what would you recommend?

Can I Run Both Ide & Sata Internal Harddrives At Same Time ?

My main hard drive is an sata drive; however, i have an extra internal 200 gig 7200rpm ide drive that i'd like to use as a backup drive. Can i run them both?

I want them both installed but i only want to boot off the sata and simply have the ide as a spare drive; does running both require that you boot from the ide? Is it simply as easy as selecting the boot device in the bios?

Whats The Difference Between Ide And Sata Dvd Drives ?

Are there any difference in quality or speed?

For ide, i just need one ide plug to connect 2 drives to the mobo right?

For sata, it would need 2 sata plugs and it would take up 2 sata ports?
