Which SATA Hard Disk to use in ThinkPad Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter

2009-01-20, 16:16 PM

Hello there,

 

i just installed a  ThinkPad Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter P/N 40Y8725 in my ThinkPad R61.

I intended using a Samsung Hard Disk HM500LI. The Disk is being recognized by the Windows Visa System but not shown on my  Ressoures. I cant use the Disk.

Is it possible that the 3,0GB/s Samsung drive is not compatible to the 1,5GB/s Adapter?

Can someone recommed a good silent drive working in this adapter? This Drive seems to be quite loud even, when it doesnt work yet.

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Best regards,

TN

The R61 can use SATA2 hdd but only at SATA1 speed of 1.5 gb/s........

 

you got to format the hdd first before you can use it.
