It's this one
I've got it installed but the new drive isn't recognized.
Do I have to move jumpers on the motherboard?
The motherboard is Intel Desktop Board D865PE
set the bios on startup?
is this the problem?
The old drive is connected using ribbon.
The new Seagate I connected using Interface Cable that came in the box.
Do I need to go buy some kind of adapter?
Thanks for the help.
I forgot to say
I would like to do what you said
make the Seagate the primary via cloning
and then eventually not use the 80gb.
Here is more info from another post of mine.
Make sure it is enabled in the BIOS setup (F2 at boot).
Did you initialize and partition the drive in Disk Management?
It turns out my
80gb drive is IDE connected by 40-pin ribbon
500gb is sata.
It is a Dell Dimension 4600i not 4600.
80gb drive is Seagate ST380011A (ATA/ATAPI-6)
I didn't initialize and partition in Disk Management because the new drive isn't showing up.
I went to BIOS setup but didn't know what to do there.
Go into the BIOS setup and make sure the drive is enabled.
SATA Primary Drive
Identifies the serial ATA hard drive attached to the SATA1 connector on the system board.
It should be set to On (or whatever sounds similar).
If that doesn't help, make sure you have the power and data cables attached properly.
I went in to BIOS and
for SATA Primary Drive
when I did it said
ATA primary drive not found.
Is it possible I have the power cable connected wrong way?
I have Main Power to P4 (smaller) to 80gb P3 to P5 then new power adapter that came with 500gb
It doesn't make sense that it said ATA primary drive not found (or do you mean it said, "SATA primary drive not found"?).
Possibly you don't have the drive powered. Do you here it spinning when the power is on?
It is also possible the drive is dead.
no it did say ATA
and I didn't hear anything spinning.
Sounds like either the drive is dead or not powered. If it is complaining about the ATA primary, you have something wrong there also.

New Drive is Recognized!
Thanks To Everyones Help!!!
I followed the steps IDE Master not recognizing new sata2 drive
Now I need to initialize the 500GB drive.
I started to initialize
I used Seagate DiscWizard and it stopped in the middle of cloning.
I got a message that said
Diskette Drive 0 failure.
I need help again - ugggh
When I was running the Seagate Discwizard the program stopped running
and I haven't been able to get back in there again.
I believe if I can get back on to my Seagate 500gb Sata drive
I can zero it
and begin again.
Not sure how to do this though.
Right now I can only get to windows using the 80gb IDE drive.
I have had the 80gb IDE drive with jumpers on Cable Select
(I have tried every different place also)
does it have to be on Cable Select?
I'd like to clone IDE 80gb to SATA 500gb
then evenutally boot from
