SATA 2.0 cable OK with Sata 3.0 GB drive?

I have a Dimension E510 with a SATA hard drive.  I don't know if it's (150 GB/s) SATA 1 or 2 (300 GB/s), and I don't know if the motherboard supports SATA 2.

I just bought this SATA 2 drive to install as a second hard drive:

http://www.Newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16822136161

I also bought this SATA 2 cable to make the connection:

http://tinyurl.com/5qdcnb

but, the description indicates the cable increases a throughput of 133 MB/s at 150 MB/s.

Now I'm really confused.  The reader care a GB transfer rate, and the cable plug a MB transfer rate.  I'm not particularly knowledgeable about these specifications.  The transfer rate of a disk is different from the speed of a cable transfer?  Is the rate of transfer by car drive to DC output speed and the rate of transfer of cable the cable?  In other words, the cable will be "slower" that produced the record?  And this is the best I can do with a cable?

I google and read it all, but I think that I have some knowledge base missing.  : smileysad:

Oh, and how do I know the ability of my motherboard?

Help, please.

Thank you.

  • DV5220us will not identify Seagate 500 GB Sata 7200 RPM hard drive XP

    Hello

    Upgrade the internal HD on my DV5220us of the standard 120 GB drive at 5400 RPM to a 500 GB drive at 7200 RPM and I have problems with the laptop recognize the drive. I did a ghost of the 120 GB image and then put the image on the 500 GB. When I install the 500 GB drive in the laptop, it does not recognize it. booting with the XP cd does not recognize the drive either. I've updated to the latest version of the bios, 24 I think, stll nothing. If I use cables and connect the 500 GB as a slave drive, he sees very well and it works. If I take the 500 GB and install in my Lenovo T61, it starts fine. No idea why the DV5220us does not recognize the HD Seagate 500 GB Sata 7200 RPM? Thank you!

  • Replace T420s with a new SSD HARD drive

    Hello

    I wonderd if it is possible to replace with a new SSD HARD drive, while putting the HARD drive in the Bay of Ultra-slot.

    And if so, what SSD model should I buy, and how do I transfer the operating system and the data for the SSD?

    This SSD model will be compatible?

    Corsair neutron Series 120 GB SSD Sata III MLC 2.5 inches Retail

    Thank you very much

    Guy

    Yes, what you are proposing is quite feasible. You will need an adapter Ultabay to organize your HARD drive in the Ultrabay housing on your system. These are available from Lenovo, but are relatively expensive. You can get a much less expensive (~ $ 10) a compatible version on eBay. It is not as well finished as the real issue, but it works well.

    The best way to transfer everything on your SSD is "clone" of your HARD disk using a software as Acronis True Image. If your current HARD drive is made by Western Digital or Seagate you can get a free copy of Acronis on their Web site. Put the SSD in the SATA drive Bay and the HARD disk in the UtlraBay. Set the T520 to start from the Ultrabay, install/run Acronis here and make a clone for the SSD. Then boot from the SSD and you'll be all set.

    With respect to the SSD, many people here have had good success with Crucial M4, 520 Intel and Samsung 830. I guess that Corsair works perfectly as well, but I didn't know all messages from people here who have done so.

    Before ordering a SSD confirm if the HARD drive is 7 mm or 9.5 mm thick. Then order the same thickness SSD. This way, you will be able to use the metal rails caddy and rubber who now hold your HARD drive to contain the SSD.

  • Backup failed with error 18: the backup drive is not found

    Hello

    My guard time capsule saying "Backup failed" for a few days and I cannot access the old backup files either (when I enter my time machine it shows 'today', which is kind of scary, although I know that my old files is still there). I tried many ways to trouble shoot this problem, but none of this has worked. In my opinion, it's more a network problem and I made sure I connect Wi - Fi even my time capsule created.

    So far I have tried:

    -Delete the files from my internet (com.apple.airport.preferences.plist; preferences.plist and NetworkInterfaces.plist, etc.) and restart my mac

    -Remove TimeMachine.plist and restart my mac

    -Hard reset of my time capsule. Went through all configurations with success but then still backup missed (I hear the running time capsule when it is by train).

    I share this time capsule with my wife and she has no problem with that.

    I can only think of a possible alternation I did which could cause this problem.

    Because of unstable WiFi problem, I had deleted

    com Apple.Airport.Preferences.plist

    com.Apple.Network.identification.plist

    NetworkInterfaces.plist

    Preferences.plist

    or other files and reboot my mac * before * I had this problem with time capsule.

    However, this is not the first time I do it, and it wasn't a problem before...

    This could be the reason? If so, how to restore the network settings?

    Please help me with this problem. Really appreciate!

  • Replace HARD drive in ix4 - 200 d with 4 No 3 TB drives

    I just traded all four 2 TB HDD in my iomega with 3 TB Seagate NAS drives. It was RAID 5 and I swapped each three days. All reconstructions of data protection took place without a hitch.

    I was expecting when I replaced the fourth drive capacity would increase from 5.4 to about 8.1 but he didn't not. It shows all the hard drives 3 drives to and total size TB 10.9 but just under that number on the same page, total capacity is still only 5.4 and NAS still 90% full.

    I tried to restart, but no change.

    All my data is backed up on my Synologies, but after taking the time to rebuild the data on the iomega RAID and not to lose, I would rather unload everything if I can avoid it.

    Pls advise. What should I do next?

    Hi Niko-Lenovo,

    What version of the firmware on your ix4 - 200 d? You may need to do a factory reset of the web interface, which is destructive of data. When replacing all readers to improve the storage capacity, usually data are saved and removed from the unit, then transferred to the unit after the upgrade. Please see: upgrade storage capacity for an ix-series network storage device

  • How is it you can't use more than 126 GB of a 1.5 TB with LabVIEW Real-time hard drive?

    How is it you can't use more than 126 GB of a 1.5 TB with LabVIEW Real-time hard drive?
     
    It's only 8.3% of disk space!

    http://digital.NI.com/public.nsf/allkb/E7E2F5657B6026358625750B007201A6?OpenDocument

    The national Instrument is reformat that you drive less than 126 GB or replace the drive with a less than this size.

    Please OR tell me you go fix your LabVIEW Real Time soon, and that we will not have to wait for LabVIEW RT 9.2.1 in 2011 for this one to fix.

    http://upload.wikimedia.org/Wikipedia/Commons/9/90/Hard_drive_capacity_over_time.svg

    Readers as high as 126 GB or more have been around since mid-2002.  It's about 7 years now and LabVIEW Real-time STILL cannot use greater than 126 GB drives!  Please OR.  Do something.

    We deserve the patches for older versions of LabVIEW RT.  What about updates to LabVIEW RT.  As 7.0.2 7.1.2 7.6.2, 8.0.2, 8.2.2, 8.6.2.

    We don't need new features or versions of LabVIEW RT as 9.0 until we have some of the bugs fixed in existing versions.

  • Turbo Tax CD setup.exe file not available in Explorer. CD is listed in the Explorer with an Apple on the drive.

    My Turbo Tax CD does not start automatically with the initial insertion in the CD player.  The CD is listed in the Explorer with an Apple on the drive.  The Explorer does not list the file setup.exe on the CD.  However, he lists a few other folders.  I use Vista to try to load the CD.  The CD does very well on my XP computer.  Is there a problem with Vista with the CD that are for MAC and Windows PC?

    Hi Undertaker Farmer,

     

    Welcome to Microsoft Answers Forums.

    • You get the error message?
    • What is the edition of Windows vista installed on the computer?

    TurboTax is a non-Microsoft program and we are not trained in this regard. However I will try my best to help you. Please, follow these tips and see if it works.

    As a work around you perhaps activate the AutoPlay for the CD and check if the auto play works.

    When you turn automatic playback, you can choose what should happen when you insert different types of digital media into your computer. For example, you can choose what digital media player is used to play CDs. When AutoPlay is disabled, you are prompted to choose what you want to do when you insert media files in your computer.

    1. Open AutoPlay by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, on material and audioand then click AutoPlay.
    2. Do one of the following:
      • To turn AutoPlay on, select the Use AutoPlay for all media and devices check box.
      • To turn AutoPlay off, clear the Use AutoPlay for all media and devices check box.
    3. Click Save.

    You can also try to copy all the contents of the CD to the hard drive and try to install and check.

    You can also try to run the file Setup from the command prompt and check what is happening.

    Click Start and type cmd and press enter in the command prompt window type the following command : \setup.exe and press ENTER.

    See also the link below for the site of TurboTax on the requirements and check if your computer meets the condition.

    Hello

    Start Windows Explorer, and then see if there is a drive letter assigned for access to the
    drive. If this is not the case, check if the disc is shown in disk management.

    1. Open Computer Management by clicking on the button start , by clicking on Control Panel, system and security, clicking Administrative Tools and then double-click computer management. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    2. In the left pane, under storage, click Disk Management.

    If there has made a right click option - assign a drive letter for you can use Windows
    Explorer to copy files.

    I hope this helps.

    I have 2 failure windows 7 installs with 35 GB of hard drive space. but I find no windows.old file?

    The first installation failed because I had a copy of counterfeit Windows 7.

    I bought another copy and installed. Then, I got a horrible virus/worm that disabled all .exe files and the fix was just beyond me!

    I installed again but did not know that the previous facility where still there.

    I find no windows.old file. (Enabled hidden files)

    Only I have a disc ssd 60gig and want the missing 35gig kindly returned to use.

    Can someone help?

    Check the system restore to see how much disk space it uses:

    Click Start

    Right click on computer

    Click on properties

    Click on advanced system settings

    Click on the System Protection

    Click on configure

    Adjust the amount of disk space allocated to system restore.

    In addition, the amount of RAM you have installed, it will take more disk space for paging, hibernation, and dump files.

  • Failure of SATA 1 TB hard drive 7200 RPM

    Hello, never posted before, so this is. My i - mac 2010 hardrive failed.

    I would like to get a replacement can anyone point me to a reliable source... For a good replacement hardrive if you please. I think also, apparently the hard drive must be SATA II, not III. Those from my local computer store seems to be III SATA, SATA III does not work?

    I would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. Also, I'm in the United Kingdom. If a British supplier would be great. Thank you very much.

    My first suggestion is to make an appointment with the Apple Genius Bar for the service. If you need a Apple Store - find a store - Apple. Check first to see if they can replace the drive for you. Unless you know how to disassemble your iMac and fix, I wouldn't recommend that you try. In regards to a disc, you should look into disk utility to see what is the serial number and the model for the wrong drive, if you can. Good replacements are made by HSGT. You may need a special connector to replace the disk temperature probe or your fan runs at full speed all the time. Looking for more information and tutorials at OWC.

    Almost all SATA III drives are compatible with SATA II disk controllers. They will work unless the model States that is not backward compatible.

  • Satellite R830 - support Sata III for SSD drives

    Hello

    Why Toshiba Satellite R830 does not support Sata III, although the plug to motherboard. indicate that it is possible?

    So you can not significantly increase the performance of your laptop by replacing the HARD drive with disk SSD Sata III. Is it possible to activate the Sata III (6 Mbps) on R830?

    All the system settings? It's also kind of bios update request necessary support SSD and SATA III...

    Any help is appreciated! :)

    > It shows that SATA III is supported, but when you install the SSD SATA III disc it does not work with higher speeds to ~ 250 MB/s (cases Crucial M4).

    From my own experience many SSD readers need a updated firmware that is provided by the manufacturers of SSD drives.

    But readers in the R830 SSD seems to support these specifications:
    Host interface: Max 300 MB/s
    Reading data supported: Max 250 MB/s
    Writing data supported: Max 160 MB/s

    By the way: the R830 supports a Mobile Intel HM65 Express Chipset and the chipset supports the storage interface high speed supports up to 6 Gb/s transfer rate for improved data access. Provides up to 6 SATA ports, 3 Gb/s with up to 2 ports support 6 Gb/s transfer rate.
