First, this device is meant to allow someone to connect 1 or 2 SATA drives to a dual IDE port on the motherboard. Not the reverse.
Second, if you are installing only 1 SATA drive, it must be connected to the first SATA connector, (the one on the opposite side of the board from the SP4 power connector). If you're installing 2 SATA drives, then this port is the Master and the SATA port in the middle is the Slave.
Third, this unit requires its own power. The LP4 to SP4 power adapter supplied with the unit must be plugged into the SP4 power connection on the unit and an available LP4 power connection from the power supply. This connector isn't meant to power the SATA drives. They must have their own power connection from the power supply.
Fourth, if you happen to have one of the older units, the jumper on it was never implemented (per StarTech). It does nothing. The newer units don't even have the jumper pins mounted on the unit.
Lastly, some older motherboards require the SATA hard drive be limited to 1.5 Gb/s speed in order to "sense" the drive depending on the model of the drive. This can be done with a jumper setting that can be looked up on the manufacturer's website of whatever model SATA drive is being used.
Hopefully this will help some people out with problems they're having with this product.
Things to remember:
1. Be sure to seed the controller correctly. I recommend holding the card by the side as you push it into the IDE controller port. If you do not have it fully set right, your system may not see it.
1.1. If the controller is integrated onto the motherboard, you may need to disconnect any surrounding cables first. Otherwise, depending on the layout of your system, it may be difficult to get the card seeded correctly.
2. The one I received included a MOLEX cable to power it. This was great for me, as my box has Molex as the default, and so I did not have to give up a SATA power.
3. It is not intended to give you full SATA-2 speeds, I think it is closer to SATA-1
This device converts a single IDE port to a pair of SATA ports.
connected 2 Western Digital SATA drives,
recognized in Linux no problem.
Very fast even running both drives at once.
