  6. hi i just bought 2 of the 2tb samsung hd204ui spinpoint f4 sata2 internal hard drives , i installed them in my dell xps 710 quadcore pc, i had spare sata cables and power cables in this pc already, when i restarted the pc they do not show up in my computer..all my other drives show as normal. i went to system properties ( from my computer) then to device manager then to disjk drives and the 2 samsung drives are shown ( called samsung hd204ui scsi disk device) the leaflet that came with the drives from samsung said some rare cases sata 1.5gb/s hosts can not establish sata interface connection with sata 3.0gb/s devices due to interface protocol issues. in this case you should switch your drive to sata 1.5gb/s speed with a software which were providing at ( now is that whats causing my problem ?) how could i check this ? or should i just go get the samsung software now ?<br />
