    WD2500AAJS not detected by motherboard


    Hi guys
    i got a hard drive from friend WD2500AAJS.
    On his PC it was working fine, but when i connected it to my PC via SATA Port (Board model: Intel DH67CL), it doesn't show up anywhere e.g boot menu, on windows installation setup.

    But if i connect it with "SATA to USB cable" , it works very fine.

    i have tried changing other port on motherboard while different SATA connecting cable too, but no work.

    what possible issue it cloud be ?

    while on the same PC i am using another hard drive which is working fine with SATA port and USB as well. the issue is somewhere between hard disk and mother board.

    Kindly guide.
    Regards.

    I don't know the particulars of your board. Go into your BIOS under drives and see if that port is turned on.

    I don't know if it matters on a SATA or not, but have you checked the master-slave jumpers?

    There is a jumper block on the drive and on the drive label, it has some comments about that jumper block. I can't find an image large enough for me to read the comments -- but in some cases, those jumpers are used to switch between different SATA versions -- like 3 GB/s vs. 1.5GB/s. I would just confirm that there are no jumpers on any of the pins.

    there is nothing on Factory Jumper Setting Pin, mean to say these pins are open.
    its written on HD that "Master/slave jumper not required fr SATA..
    Jumpered pins 3 and 4 enable PUIS (Power Up In Standby)"
