I'm sure you paid as much for the Syba which is not working out.
I have a computer in which the hard drive died (blue screen of death). I researched the hard drive type and thought I figured out that I needed a SATA replacement hard drive, but once receiving it I realized that it was a PATA. I took the route of converting it instead of going through the process of returning the SATA for a PATA. I bought the converter cables and a PCI combo converter card from a local computer store and installed everything. (Motherboard to PCI card to Hard drive and Power Supply to Hard drive) When I turn the computer on it says "Primary Disc Hard Drive 0 (and 1) not found. Strike F! key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility. (F1 makes it forever repeat itself.". I have a Windows XP disc but its not reading that because it can't get past the hard drive detection. What do I do now?
