  • I have a brand new MSI AM1i motherboard that is SATA only, and I wanted to use an IDE hard drive on it. Connected it up as described. The instructions are contradictory because in one diagram they picture the switch one way, but the description fits the switch being the other way. Tried it both ways, but the motherboard absolutely refused to even glance at it, even though it recognised the SATA DVD drive perfectly easily. Tried swapping sockets, tried swapping cables. There was clearly power to the device as the green light came on, although it took longer for the green light to come on than it took for the motherboard to go zooming past that stage. Tried doing a warm reboot (CTRL-ALT-DEL) so that the device would still be powered up when the motherboard went looking for it, but still no joy. Unfortunately had lost receipt.
