Ok I gave up on my other pci sata card as I found out is more generic than that word itself.
Here we go I bought a new card. To make it quick and to the point the installation instructions say to connect the HDD LED connector from the computer case to the 2-pin header on the Serial ATA host controller card, but beware of the polarity of the LED.
Do I need to do that for this thing to work?
My pc is an older Dell Dimension 4550. This this is anything but what it was when I bought it.
If I do need to hook them little wires where on earth would I find where to hook them up in my computer?
A little info on the card, Model # SD-SATA-1E11 is has the Silcon Image SIL3512 Serial ATA (SATA) host controller chip set. I think the card is made by SYBA.
I know where the 2 pins are on the card if that offers anything. Also why would I need an LED connector attached to this thing?
