Installation tips:

  1. Be safe. Ensure that all power is removed from the computer prior to installing. If any changes are made ensure that a full power cycle is performed to allow the BIOS to update with any new devices.
  2. Ensure that both of the two power supplies are connected. i.e that the power supply cable is connected to the SATA or IDE CD/DVD/HDD Drive, and that the power supply cable is connected to the Adapter.
  3. Confirm that the SATA cable is connected to the correct SATA port on the Adapter. The adapter has two SATA connectors. One connector (labelled SATA1 SATA=>IDE HDD) is used if connecting the adapter to a SATA port on a mainboard, One connector (labelled SATA2 IDE=> SATA HDD) is used if connecting a SATA HDD to an IDE Port on a mainboard.
  4. Ensure that the correct 40 Pin IDE ribbon cable is used. Some 40 pin ribbon have a section twisted for a cable select Master - Slave function.
  5. Ensure that the 40 Pin IDE socket on the Adapter is correctly connected to the drive. It is easy to inadvertently miss-connect the 40 pin connector meaning that two of the pins are not connected. Check for any sneaky pins showing on either side of the 40 pin connector after connecting.
  6. Confirm that the Drive Select and Master / Slave Jumpers are correctly configured on the IDE DVD or HDD. The device must be in Cable Select - CS or MASTER - MA mode. The Adapter will not function in Slave - SL Mode.
