Hard Disk Controller Drivers Download

A Hard Disk Controller Driver is software which enables communication between your internal hard disk (or drive) and your computer. Internal hard disks connect to the motherboard of your computer using an IDE interface or SATA interface. Once your new hard disk is installed correctly, your computer should recognize it automatically. Problems such as hard drive not found errors could be due to missing or corrupt Hard Disk Controller Drivers. Also, older operating systems such as Windows XP/2000 may not automatically recognize the new hard disk if the hardware is newer than the operating system.
