We are providing specifications below to explain why you should consider purchasing the Seagate 160GB-7.2K RPM ATA-IDE Hard Drive, including a general overview, performance specifications, relevant images, media files, and technical information about the ST3160215ACE compatibility.

More Information

The Seagate ST3160215ACE is a 160GB hard drive with a 7200 RPM rotation speed and an ATA-100 interface. The ATA-100 interface also known as Parallel ATA (PATA) which is an older interface that has been replaced by SATA (Serial ATA) in most new systems. This drive is designed for use in desktop and tower PCs and it's compatible with systems that support PATA interface. The drive has a storage capacity of 160GB, which would be suitable for storing basic files like documents, photos, videos, and music. However, this capacity might not be enough for more demanding tasks such as gaming or video editing.

High-speed data transfer

The Seagate ST3160215ACE is a hard drive with a 7200 RPM rotation speed, which is considered to be a standard speed for desktop hard drives. This speed allows for faster data access and improved performance compared to slower 5400 RPM drives. However, it still might not be as fast as a Solid State Drive (SSD).

The drive has a PATA interface, also known as ATA-100, which provides a maximum data transfer rate of 100MB/s. This interface is considered to be an older and slower interface compared to the more modern SATA interface. The PATA interface is not as fast as SATA interface, which can transfer data at speeds up to 6 Gb/s.

The 160GB capacity is also considered to be on the lower side for today's storage standard, you may find it limiting for some high-performance tasks that require more storage space. However, it would still be suitable for basic file storage and everyday use.

Reliability

The Seagate ST3160215ACE is a hard drive that uses the PATA (Parallel ATA) interface, also known as ATA-100, which is an older interface that has been mostly replaced by SATA (Serial ATA) in new systems. It is compatible with systems that support PATA interface, this includes older desktop and tower PCs that were manufactured before the widespread adoption of SATA interface.

It is important to check the system's documentation and technical specifications to ensure that the drive is supported and that the system has the necessary PATA ports and connectors. It is also important to check the system's firmware version and update it if necessary, as well as check for any other specific requirements or recommendations for installing a hard drive before installing it.

It is worth noting that PATA is an older interface and it may not offer the same performance and functionality as the newer SATA interface, and also, PATA devices are less common and harder to find now days.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

ATA-IDE was the standard interface for computers back in the 1980s and was designed to ensure compatibility with hard drives, CD or DVD drives. ATA-IDE is commonly referred to using other terms such as IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics), ATA, or PATA (Parallel ATA).

IDE is markedly different from ESDI (Enhanced Small Disk Interface) and SCSI since the controllers are found on each drive. Therefore, the ATA-IDE hard drive will connect directly to a controller or motherboard. For the ATA/IDE, data transfer will range between 5MB/s and 133MB/s speeds.

We have integrated drive electronics, IDE, hard drives, IDE connectors, and IDE cables that will help you in upgrading your systems and replacement of components. Depending on your needs, you can get hard drives across different storage capacities and read/write speeds including 160GB-7.2K RPM or 160GB-5.4K RPM, 250GB-7.2K RPM or 250GB-5.4K RPM, 300GB-5.4K RPM or 300GB-7.2K RPM, 320GB-5.4K RPM or 320GB-7.2K RPM, and all the way to 750GB capacity.

Each IDE channel is able to support two drives since the IDE ribbon cable has three connections – one to the motherboard and the other two connections for two drives.

How will your computer tell which drive is which after installation of a new ATA/IDE HDD seeing that you can connect up to 2 drives? The ATA-IDE uses a straight-through cable but can be configured with jumper blocks on the rear of the drive to denote it as primary (master) or secondary (slave). The jumpers are used across the board for optical drives and removable media drives as well. All ATA/IDE disk drives can have three basic configurations that are selected using jumper blocks including master (MA), slave (SL), and cable select (CS, CSEL).

We recommend the following settings at the time of installing a new hard disk or other ATA/IDE device to ensure fast and efficient performance on your computer/system.

  • Master/slave – You need to jumper a drive as master so that it becomes the primary drive on the cable. Where you have both the hard disk drive and optical drive on the same cable, the hard drive must always be jumpered as master. Secondly, the cable should be connected to the ATA/IDE connector number one on the computer motherboard.
  • Slave – You need to jumper a drive as a slave so that it becomes the secondary drive on the cable. In the scenarios where you have both the hard disk and optical drive on the same cable, the rule of thumb is to jumper the optical drive as the slave.
  • Cable select – Finally, the position of the hard disk drive on the cable will determine which drive the system takes to be the master or the slave. The majority of the time, cable select will call for the use of an 80-wire IDE ribbon cable. The 80-wire cables also support Master and Slave settings for the support of two drives. However, we also have the specially designed 40-wire cables that are used by some computer vendors to support cable selection.

There are different types of IDE hard drive disks depending on the system and storage capacity. Hard drives require a cable/connection for both data and power. Unlike SATA, parallel ATA will have cable lengths of up to 18 inches. The ATA-IDE has both a 40-pin connector and an 80-pin connector that are attached to a ribbon cable. The connector in a 40-pin is distinctive in black color, while the 80-pin connector has three colors – black for the master drive, blue for the controller, and gray for the slave drive. For every cable, there are two or three connectors where one connector is attached to the interface that connects to the motherboard while the others are connected to drives.

The 2.5-inch form factor ATA-IDE HDD is commonly used in notebooks or laptop computers makes use of a single 44-pin connection for both data and power. The ATA-IDE hard disks used in desktops make use of a 40-pin connection plus a 4-pin power connector. If you are experiencing challenges installing a new ATA-IDE HDD, it could be that you are having problems with the power and data cables and connectors. We can help you with the right cables to ensure that your computer rig is up and running once again.

We also have integrated motherboards that will support the use of both ATA/IDE and SATA so that you can build systems that meet your needs/specifications. Keep in mind that only one of the two can be used at a given time since both cannot be used simultaneously. Alternatively, we have adapters that will allow the use of an ATA/IDE hard drive with a SATA motherboard and a SATA drive with an IDE motherboard.
