ABIT AV8 not reading SATA ASUS DVD Burner

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 have a similar problem with the AV8 3rd Eye and an Asus DVD burner. It takes ages to load DVD's and even when it does it sometimes disappears from the device manager. Have you managed to solve your problem?

    I did manage to fix the problem. the issue was in the registry. I was using some software that changed the value sin my registry, causing my drives to not read properly. I know what you mean with the lag using SATA with this motherboard. I have just learned to live with it since everything else is functional now. If I can remmeber where I found hte fix, I'll post here for 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;
http://ftp.abit.com.tw/pub/download/fae/ic7-g_eng_v101.pdf
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].

When trying to finalize DVD disc, why do I often get error E 22 Cannot record on this disc (DVD-R)?


I don't know what means error E22 but if you start experience frequently the record errore your burner is failing. Check connections in your computer, specially the data cable if you are using SATA. Use cables with a "clip" so your connection should not get loose.
If everyting is right and you still can't finalize correctly your recording, change your DVD burner
