works fine with older mobos by vaidas
"Response by stevenl
You probably need to initialise, partition & format the drive. This can be done in Disk Management; Right click on the My Computer icon and select 'Manage' -> Disk Management -> Where it says 'Not Initialized', right click and select 'Initialize' -> Then right click on the drive size to the right, and select 'Create Partition', and follow the wizard"
thanks steven :) my own little mistake never thought on doing that for some reason. it works fine i see it in windows all 1tb.
ill comment later of a performance. seems like no need a jumper settings, works fine atm. the funny thing that non manuals are same only 4 pins instead of 8(all manuals showed 8).
so far so good,
thank you aria now im a happy man.
Always happy to help :)
not for older mobos by vaidas
so... after 11hours of continious try to get this hdd to work on my hp xw6200 workstation i failed. all i could get is to see it in bios but windows xp sp2 never detect it, but if i would go to device manager i can see it its there it shows samsung HD103UJ under disk drives, i check on properties it says device is working fine, but either i try instaling a program, or formating, or defrag, or clean hdd it never comes up. ive done loads of reasearch online and saw that meny people who use older mobos that are using sata I 1.5gbs connector windows not detecting this hdd in particular the rest who used newer mobos seemed to be happy of this hdd so seems like its useles for me to keep upgrading this useles xw6200 although works great just with little limitations.
dunno what to do now with this hdd as atm i cant use it so seems like its gonna have to wait for a new pc, christmas is coming :).
end line: dont buy if you use older mobo that is using sata I 1.5gbs connectors

Great product by Cristian
Very good product at a great offer price ! I bought it after reading many reviews. It looks that this HDD is recommended as the first HDD (that means OS HDD) for fast booting and good access times.
And congratulation ARIA ! Every shopping that I made on this site was next day at my home with standard delivery. Incredible !
responce for the person called ed by supermorph
hi ed, u quoted having an old board.
"I have an old motherboard, an Abit NF7-s V1.0. It has 2 first generation SATA ports. Will this drive work or is it time for a new pc?"
you have 2 options, one cheap, one i would save up for depending on what u wanted to do e.g gaming etc
1) seens u have an abit nf7-s they have normal pci slots dont they?,if so you could buy a card to support sata 2, while this may work it has a downside, it will be at pci speeds and not the sata2 speeds, but is the cheaper option.
General note:my board is a asus p5n32-e sli plus,
while its not the latest and greatest, but it is a GOOD board because it has SIX 2nd gen sata slots, which can be raided.
and has 3 pci-e slots, (nvidia sli type)
2) you could buy a new board
(mabye ram & chip depending on what u have / are able to afford)
just thought i'd help
p.s im getting at least one of these for a birthday gift very shortly (23rd) so i can't wait :-)
hope this helps,
Thanks by muttley
Just to say "thanks Aria", great drive, nice and silent and very fast. i wanted to test the heat, so i had it thrashing about and its no warmer than any other drive i have in.
quick note, when installing windows, dont do a full format, i had installed 2 operating systems before it finished :)
