Question about Abit AV8-3rd Eye Motherboard
I have the ABIT AV8 motehrboard and am running one SATA hard drive on channel 0 and an ASUS SATA dVD burner on channel 1. My rpoblem is that even though the DVD drive shows up under "My Computer," it won't read any disks inserted unless I reboot the computer. I don't have extensive knowledge of SATA and RAID configurations, so any help in resolving this matter would be appreciated.Thank you.
I solved this differently - I just connected the drive via a USB-to-SATA adapter and all is well. I guess my motherboard's SATA controller can't handle modern SATA2 drives properly. The USB adapter did the trick.

Suggest you connect the plextor to the SATA port 3 and set it's jumper to Master. All SATA drives are seen as Master drives. (Check the serial number on your WD SATA drive "Primary".
Enter the bios menu. Within page 3-7 section 3-3 Advanced bios features. Check, 1st, 2nd and third boot devices.
Floppy disk drive as, 1st boot device. 2nd boot device, "Primary WD SATA port 1". 3rd boot device, CD-ROM drive SATA port 2, Plextor 880sa drive". Save and exit the bios. If you no longer have you're manual you can download it from the link provided below;
Check page 3-13. See OnChip serial ATA Mode. As noted, the RAID option is available when the item "OnChip serial ATA" is set as [Enhanced Mode].
