From the Forums

A user in the forum details it further:

I downloaded the latest Via Hyperion Pro drivers for SATA/RAID. In the BIOS I seem to have set everything up for SATA.. This seemed little vague so I will give some more info: Running Windows XP SP2. Here are the specs: 120 GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 SATA - ST3120026AS I'm also not sure if I have the correct drivers.

I'm not quite sure if my SATA drive is being recognized.. I also downloaded the VIA RAID Tool(do not have RAID setup currently but this shows info). I will attach an image.

Shouldn't the transfer rate be set at SATA not DMA?   Looks Ok to me some systems see the sata as scsi past that read the manual more about optimum setup I would think it would transfer as udma or dma5 ?????????????????   Any Help would be appreciated. It's labeled as a SCSI drive? I guess it's the driver.

What causes SATA not properly recongnized?

If you received this error on your PC, it means that there is a malfunction in your system. Common causes are incorrect or unsuccessful installation or removal of software that could leave invalid entries in the Windows registry, the effects of a virus or malware attack, an incorrect system shutdown due to a power failure, or another factor in which a person with little technical knowledge accidentally deletes the required A system file or registry entry, as well as several other reasons. The immediate cause of "SATA not properly recongnized?" is a failure when one of its normal operations is properly started by a system or application component.

USB Device not being recongnized

so I cant take/put songs onto the ipod cause it doesnt show up on Itunes, any ideas?.. It will charge with the puter shut down!!!
You won't be able to add music that shows up on the iPod without using iTunes or another program that can build the database. You may need to configure itues prior to hooking up the ipod. ????

this didnt happen on my other pc. EDIT: By the way....all USB ports are hot swappable and are powered ports!!! Try installing iTunes then plugging your iPod into another USB port.

That has nothing to do wiht the recognition of the ipod as a mass storage device.

Hey, the problem is I plug in my ipod nano w/ the usb hookup, and it starts charging and everything, but it says the usb device cant be recognized?

Keyboard & mouse not recongnized on KVM switch

To get usb mouse/keyb worked you might use other (black, not violet) usb socket. by the way the KVM switch is also 'seen' by W7 under devices even though it doens't need any drivers. My dell d630 generates bsod after docking 50-50 percent If I not use sleep-wakeup trick before docking.

I have to stick both in the front site USB ports, then baoth are working.

I figured out that you have to put your laptop to sleep mode and switch to that port on kvm before connection. All conncected devices are shown (I have also 2 USB drives)

I had the same problem w/ windows 7 build 7022 x86 and kvm cs-62du.

On my new Acer M7720 (X58 Core-i7-920) I have Vista HP 64 bits working fine with an Conceptronic 2 port KVM switch so I can also use keyboard, mouse & monitor on my old PC. This is a workaround, not a solution, I know.

Any one an idea how to salve this? After wakeup external monitor gets recognised on correct resoultion. When I stick them in the KVM switch, you can here the USB connect sound and both devices are shown under unknown devices, wereas the are shown under devices when connected through the front side USB ports.

On the new Acer I also installed Windows 7, but here the mous and keyboard are not recogized when connected through the KVM switch.

wireless card not recongnized by drivers

I think that it is just getting hot and i need to replace the fan. the drivers wouldnt allow the wireless card to install, so i had to take it back. my wireless connection didnt come up so i went into the control panel and opened up my wireless connection icon and it said "incompatible driver version found.

Hopefully you can help
i have an acer aspire 1710 with xp pro and sp2 installed. could there be something wrong in my bios that is blocking the wireless connection. Since this problem occured, i have restarted around 6 or 7 times and one of the times, my WLAN 802.11g did actually work until i restarted again. let me know if you need more info.

i have downloaded the driver that came withe the laptop from the makers website and deleted/repaired/installed it but no luck. I am not sure if they are related. unable to load application". i have ran adaware, spybot, and panda activescan, and macaffee and have fixed all problems found but still no luck.

i also have a yellow question mark in my device manager, with the heading "network controller". My notebook is also freezing more often and hesitates at startup until i pound the keys and touchpad, then it starts up again. i was using my wireless connetion the other day, until my notebook froze( it often gets hot and freezes) and i had to restart. even more detail.

i have a WLAN 802.11g mini-PCI Module for wireless connectivity. i also bought a linksys wirless card for my pc slot...

WD External Harddisk is not recongnized in Windows 10

It was working fine from last 2 years on my windows system. Any help is much appreciated.On the side note, Before few hours I tried accessing the same drive in MAC, I could able to see the drive in MAC but 50% of the folders, also none of the folders were getting open. In last few months I also used this harddisk on my MAC laptop (Mac it shows only readonly mode as partition is NTFS).  I am not sure how it got corrupted but now its not working on windows as well as mac system.In device manager under disk devices I can see "WD My Passport 0748 USB Device"I also checked in Disk Management and I am seeing Unitialized Disk 1 with the popup message "you must initialize a disk before logical disk manager" (Screenshot attached)I don't want to miss my data.

I also tried to access folder contain through command line by going into /Volumes/myharddisk/fewfolders  but even with command line was able to access couple of folders. For most of the other folder i got I/O error.My guess is , it should be related to partition corruption but not sure.

Deleted recovered .bak file not recongnized

The files were recovered from a USB flash drive where I do my backups to. When I try to restore them into the program I get en error message "not a valid Microsoft Tape Format backup set" and the restore terminates. They seem to be the correct size.

Is there something I can do with this file to have it be recognized as a .bak? I'm thinking it has it's own specification for the .bak files it creates and uses, and the undelete programs are using standard Microsoft .bak specifications when the .bak files are restored. Maybe if we knew what program you're using, we could figure out a way to do what's needed, but IMO it's a long shot, but we'll try.

I used both FreeUndelete and Undelete Plus and recovered recently deleted .bak files of my data.

I had to reinstall a program and when I went to restore the data I stupidly hit backup, which I do every time I use the program, and over wrote my backed up data file with blank data instead of restoring the data file.

SATA working properly?

I was using everest to check my SATA drive, and I seen that it was recognized as IDE. The HDD is connected using SATA and it is the drive windows is installed on. If my computer is running fine, does that mean that the SATA interface is working properly and I'm just worried about nothing, or are there drivers I need to intall for it to be recognized as SATA?

Yeah thats about it and if you problems with it being recognized make sure you check the jumpers.

SATA not working properly with ABIT IS7

Do any of you know how i could fix that? I have these 2 SATA hds (both are WD3200KS) and they wont work properly with the mobo (ABIT IS7).

I just bought a bunch of stuff to build a new computer and i've had nothing but bad luck. First I went through 2 sets of stuff and ended up with 2 bad motherboards and 1 bad video card.

Now I am borrowing some of my friend's stuff so that I can have a computer to use while i am waiting for newegg to return my stuff. So my latest bad luck is with the harddrives. first make sure that you have the latest bios for the board. second make sure that you have the settings in the bios for both Sata and PATA to be enabled.

the bios that shipped with the boards did not support sata hard drives properly. if I remeber correctly it is referred to as "enhanced".

Abit has newer bios that does support them.

Everytime i hook them up they kick the optical drives off and then they dont show up in windows.

USB 2.0 TO SATA IDE CABLE does not work properly

Did you do that?

sata hard drive-is it working properly?

Turn off ReadyBoost on that drive if using it and you have Vista (What OS?). It says theoretical speed 300 mg. These are the same whether windows or the bios determines the speed.

Try HD Tune with as many programs shut down as possible. Disable any pagefiles if you put one on that drive.

Are these speeds correct? I get 80 MB/sec on a normal IDE drive and 70 on an external USB 2.

Is it being accessed by anything during the test? The system takes 40 seconds to boot to desktop. If they're too slow how do I correct this? When testing the drive speed in device manager under sata controller with all boxes checked, it shows 94 mg burst speed and 79 mg sustained speed.

This is with xp home. Is this correct or slow?

That doesn't sound right.

I built a new system with a evga 650i mobo, core 2 duo, 2 gig ram, and wd sata drive. What is on that drive?

ThinkPad E420 - What is the type of SATA interface of this laptop? Is it SATA 2 or SATA 3?

Is it SATA 3 or SATA 2? I notice that this laptop's hard disk drive transfer rate is 3 Gb/s which means it's a SATA 2 HDD, isn't it? Go to Solution. You are right, the E420 is SATA2.SATA3 is very uncommon in laptops!

Dear All, What is the type of SATA interface of ThinkPad E420?

V570 reports HDD at SATA 1.5 rather than SATA 3.0 (SATA I vs. SATA II)

I know there will be plenty to say, and this is only my second post on the forum, but  trust that I understand what I am asking.  I know that the real world difference between SATA generations for HDDs is miniscule.  I also know how to implement, and check the storage controllers. I have the correct drivers, and REGARDLESS OF MY REASONS, I would like to know why my Seagate 5400.6 is running at SATA 1.5 and not SATA 3.0. I checked it over and over after installing the Chipset, the AHCI, and the RST driver.  I even tried countless versions of both, so I am fairly sure that its not a driver or software issue.  That leaves:  The chipset, The "UEFI/BIOS", or the HDD firmware.  I should also mention that my last, and only other experience with Lenovo was with the T61 series that had the SATA II governer placed on it.  I don't know how you would feel about that, but I simply did not like it. There is one other promising post that is hasnt been updated for a while, but on it there is information about seagate Firmware.  That being said, I have seen the same issue, without resolution, tucked in the far reaches of the forums of cyberspace....Its a Mystery.  I should mention that  the machine is question is a:Lenovo V570 with the 2nd Gen i5 2450, Sandy Bridge Architecture (so not the 2 port intel problem) and HM65 Chipset(so perfectly capable of SATA II). Windows 7 64bit


Need to upgrade to SATA Not sure if it is sata or sata II which my mobo supports

Apps not starting properly, sys. recov. doesn't work, can't shut down properly, etc..

Anyone got any suggestions on what to do next? Defragged my C drive, still no results besides the computer feeling a bit smoother-running o_o

Anyone know what the heck's going on!? anyway, just stopped by to say that when shutting down, it takes forever to get to the "Saving your settings..." screen, and that's where I decided that it stops and nothing else after that.

I have no idea what my sister and her friends were doing on the comp for a couple of days that i decided not to use it, but now:

- a few programs take forever to load or don't load at all, but they do show up under the processes tab in the task manager
- after pressing Ctrl Alt Del, the task manager icon appears in the system tray, but the thing only shows up a minute later
- my system recovery is "not able to protect my computer," and restarting does nothing
- actually, when restarting or shutting down Windows, it stops at where it only shows my desktop background and cursor [which is still able to move] and nothing else after that, so i have to hold the power button and force it to shut off
- when I right click the desktop and click on "Properties..." [or something similar to this action] it doesn't show up at all, and whenever I try to open any application after that, they don't even load at all either

Things i've tried to get rid of these problems:
- Virus scan with avast!, a couple viruses found and fixed, but nothing cha...

trojan horse, redirect virus, windows wont shut down properly or open properly

I am new here but here goes. When i boot windows it gives me the black screen asking if i want safe mode, etc. I have tried to restore but that didnt work and now windows has deleted most of the restore points.

Tho it will randomly shut down no matter what i am doing. I had chrome and ie but i have deleted chrome thinking it may contain the problem but now ie is doing the same thing. I pick open normally and it will boot. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep.

When i try to shut it down, it gives me a blue screen telling me that there is an internal power problem and then it re-boots windows. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.Orange Blossom

If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. I have a sony laptop and i have AVG virus protection.

the browser will freeze randomly also. When i scan avg tells me there is a couple of trojan horses infected but it says they are unaccessable so cant be fixed. My browser also is very slow now and re-directs ...

Hardrive did not unmount properly during shutdown, will not mount properly now

Safe Mode was the next option, but it froze yet again while trying to start up in Safe Mode. All was going well, until I clicked my User name in the login screen, at which point it showed my desktop wallpaper and the mouse, but then just sat there, not loading any icons or the toolbar. Am I recoverable, or is this hard drive gone for good?

When it doesn't work in Ubuntu either, that is a pretty good indication the hard drive is shot.

Luckily I have a couple Ubuntu discs lying around, so I started into a Live session of Ubuntu, which I'm in right now, to see if I could figure out what the problem was.

Next up was to try recovery from the XP installation disc, but that froze during loading as well. Ubuntu could not mount my hard drive, and when I tried to force mount it, I got the message -

$LogFile indicates unclean shutdown (0, 0)
WARNING: Forced mount, reset $LogFile.

I'm afraid due to the nature of the problem I can't be that specific on what exactly is going on, but I'll do the best I can.

Earlier this morning I shut down my computer after it had been converting some files, and then started it back up again when I officially woke up 40 minutes or so later. fuse: failed to access mountpoint /media/disk: No such file or directory
FUSE mount point creation failed
Unmounting /dev/sda1 ()

At this point, I'm more or less at a loss as to what to do. I then tried starting it up again, but this time didn'...

speakers not working properly, sound is very low, connected properly, please help!

the speakers worked properly on my old pc though.

I think...

1.You may have accidently adjusted you sound configuration settings.
2.You may not have the correct sound Drive (Or none at all).

ok so i got a new compaq pc and my old polkaudio speakers wont work! i no that they are connected properly, and the volume is cranked to the fullest and all sounds still play quietly.

does anyone no what the problem is? If so check your sound card and browse the web for installable driver (The acctual drivers don't cost anything)

no boot device available sata 0: installed sata 1: installed sata 2: none sata 3: non

Am I doing something wrong when I'm installing the new drive? After reading multiple posts on similar issues, I went and got a new hard drive. However, after rebooting sometimes once, sometimes several times the computer eventually boots up. I've been getting this message for about a month.

System specs:
Inspiron 531
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5600+ 2.81 GHz

Thank you.

Please help. I am at a loss. I took the old one out and put in the new one.

At this point I swapped the drives again (the old one is back in). I get the same message when it tries to boot. Why am I getting the same message with this new drive?

I backed up all the files and was going to reinstall evertyhing from scratch onto this new hard drive.

SATA III SSD on SATA II motherboard with SATA II HDD's attached.

Is this true? If someone know for sure, or has such configuration, please tell me. I have an Asus formula III SATA II motherboard and I am planning to buy a cheap SSD sata III drive.

Just a simple question. Will there be any problem if I use both HDD (for files) and the SSD for the system? I believe not, but I ask because someone in a forum said that you sould have only the ssd attached.
