I'm having some problems using a new Samsung SATA 2 500gb HD with an Asus K8V-X motherboard. This question, also made by me, is related.
Found this forum post on google where someone said that the motherboard might not have support for SATA 2 HDDs, even thought SATA is supposed to be backward compatible. I'd have to limit my new HDD speed to SATA 1 and maybe my motherboard would recognize it. The problem is I don't know how to set it to SATA 1. I found manuals here but they do not mention anything about limiting SATA HDD speed by placing jumpers. They only describe how to set PATA drives to master, slave or cable select. How can I set my SATA 2 HDD to SATA 1 with jumpers?
