1.Turn OFF the power to your computer and any other connected peripheral devices.

2.Unplug the power cord from the back of the computer.

3.Remove your computer’s cover.

4.Remove the slot bracket from an available PCI slot.

5.To install the card, carefully align the card's bus connector with the selected PCI slot on the motherboard. Push the board down firmly, but gently, until it is well seated.

6.Replace the slot bracket's holding screw to secure the card.

Device Connection

The UltraATA 133 PCI is a dual channel Ultra ATA/133 controller that supports up to four IDE hard disk drives or ATAPI devices. If you plan to use the second IDE channel (IDE2).

In order to achieve high-speed data transfer, a 40-pin/80- wire Ultra ATA ribbon cable is recommended. Also, do not mix Ultra ATA/133 hard disk with slower IDE or ATAPI devices on the same channel.

1.Install hard disk drive(s) in chassis.

2.Attach one connector on the long end of the Ultra ATA ribbon cable to the board's IDE connector and the other connector(s) to your IDE drive(s). Make sure pin 1 on the cable (indicated by the colored stripe) matches pin 1 on the board's IDE connector and your IDE drive(s).

3.When two drives are installed on the same IDE channel, make sure one drive is set up as Master and the other as Slave. This rule applies to both IDE channels.

4.The Ultra ATA ribbon cable has two connectors. If you install only one drive, connect it to the end connector of the cable. On the other hand, if you install two drives, connect the master drive to the end connector of the cable and the slave drive in the middle connector.
