okay, do I understand this right in that you tried to upgrade your old PC, which had IDE drives, with newer Serial ATA drives?... have you checked if your motherboard is even compatible with SATA drives? what type of motherboard do you have?.. if you dont know just look inside and see if you have below the big IDE connectors the sata connectors, which are like a quarter of an inch long and are usually labeld on the board with SATA 1-4 or 6 depending on how many there are... is there even converter plugs to transfere IDE to SATA in case he doesnt have a Serial ATA capable MoBo?
