SATA to IDE connector

  MartynHoll 15:33 15 Jan 2007

I have just bought a converter for my second hard drive that I am fitting to my PC. When I coonect the SATA cable to the converter and power it, the PC just stays in Setup- is there anything else I have to do? Also, there are no instructions with the converter as the plug into the hard drive can go either way! Any ideas?

try turning the plug around.

Tried that -no joy. I have now gone back to IDE and have got the drive working with the DVD player by reversing the cable to get the right length to the bits of hardware (which was the original problem)!
