IDE to SATA 150 converters.

Postby wicked1 on Fri Jun 04, 2004 4:24 am

I just bought 6 of these for my hardives and 1 dvd burner also I ordered a maxtor 250 gig harddive for a total of 987 gigz storage non raid \:D/ I also ordered a Silicon Image SATA controller with 2XSATA 150 ports. I have 4 onboard SATA ports. This will allow 5 hard drives and the future DVD drive to all use SATA and my 5 current drives to stay firewire interface. I will post my results of its performance when they arrive which I know are going to rock. The cables I ordered are UV reactive so the case will still look cool without the UV reactive round cables [-o<

What are your 4 onboard ports? If they are not run off of a Silicon Image controller they will not work. I think most AMD Boards use the SI chipset though.

my onboard ports are Sil. Image. I also ordered a 2 SATA port PCI card controller (Sil Image again) I just hope they play nice together. The cables are UV reactive not EL lit.

finally got the adapters. I got 3 of them. So far so good. Works fine with my samsung 352b and both liteons. I am going to do some testing later to see the cpu usage compared to the firewire adapters I have been using.Ive been using 3 of the dual drive firewire converters from datoptic with not too much hassle. Everynow and then on a reboot my drives arent detected and I have to unplug the main firewire cable from my computer that feeds them all and plug it back in and then they are fine. No rebooting required thats been the only negative I have had with them. I just wanted to try out the sata interface since I have 4 ports needing used still. With firewire I can burn to all 6 burners at once different compilations with no problems or dropping from max speed.Thats not all from 1 hard drive mind you.

Ok. I tried a Syba IDE to SATA adapter:
http://www.syba.com/us/en/product/41/04/02/index.html


and an Addonics IDE to SATA adapter:
http://www.addonics.com/products/io/ide_sata.asp


with my NEC ND3500A:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDe ... 27-152-033


This is the PC I have:
http://www.us.shuttle.com/specs2.asp?pro_id=487



I have WindowsXP Pro. SP2. The BIOS recognizes everything fine. I have tried all combinations of SATA configurations with the BIOS and the BIOS always reconginzes the N3500A when I have it plugged in with either of the IDE to SATA adapters, but whenever I get to the part of startup where the WindowsXP logo is showing on the black background, it freezes there. I have booted Windows in Safe Mode and it starts up fine. Whenever I boot windows into Safe Mode with networking though, it does the same thing, it freezes at the WindowsXP logo. Anyone know what could be going wrong? I have been pulling my hair out trying to get this ND3500A to work with the IDE to SATA adapters.

Also, both the Syba and Addonics websites say that their IDE to SATA adapters do not need drivers, but I have read other forums (Plextor forums and MSI forums - both currently have SATA optical drives) and people say that they have success with their SATA optical drives, all they needed were drivers.

Anyone know what I can do to get my setup to work? Thanks for any help.
