Windows will not see them because you need to download the SATA drivers for the motherboard from the Asus site.
Download and install to a floppy or USB (advise the latter) Install windows,and you will get a "press f6 if you want to install a raid device ..." Press F6 and hopefully, windows will find the drivers, highlight the ones it wants.. the rest should be simple
Check your bios settings. If you already have two SATA hard disk drives in your system the bios should also list your SATA DVD writer as third in the list. Make sure the bios list the DVD writer. Remember all SATA drives including SATA DVD drives are all seen as Masters. Check your Boot order settings as well. If windows sill does not list a drive letter for your SATA DVD click, Start/Run and type: diskmgmt.msc in the run window. Assign a drive letter to the drive manually.
Uninstall the driver manually from control pannnel first then try installing the driver again from the disk or get it online. IF this does not work just reinstall the OS and reinstall SP2 again if possible, as this will work for sure.
definately not a problem with your speakers, the SP2 would not have installed correctly.
Windows XP does -not- have native SATA support and therefore will not recognize a SATA drive without first installing 3rd party drivers. To go around this problem without installing drivers check your BIOS. There might be something in there where the bios will emulate an IDE controller.
If not, you'll need a floppy and the sata drivers. A flash drive will also do if the motherboard bios supports legacy USB. To find the drivers, simply go to the motherboards manufacturers website.
