Hi stewwiles, If your bios does not see & list the drive neither will windows hardware manager/ device manager. Check your manual. Enter your bios. The DVD drive should be listed in the same menu as your hard disk drive. Than go to the title "Boot" in your bios & make sure your DVD is listed in the boot order. (List of normal boot order):
1st boot device= Floppy drive
2nd boot device= DVD drive (model no#)
3rd boot device= Primary hard disk drive (model no#)

Make sure your DVD's jumper setting is set to "Master".

Good luck!
Mike

Asus e818a3t is recognized as a DVD-ROM only. I can no longer write CDs after my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit install. Windows says the driver is installed and everything is working properly. Obviously not!


Hello there,

Try this trick,

1. Go to Hardware Profile and Remove your Asus ROM profile.
2. Shutdown your Machine -
3. Remove the Asus ROM from your Sata Connector.
4. Turn your Computer ON without that ROM
5. Shutdown it again, and Reconnect your ROM to those Sata connectors
6. Comment back here if still not working. :)


Cheers!

Dell inspiron 1721 hard drive not recognized for Vista reinstall


ok, theres a small issue with the raid controller. You have to install a 3rd party raid driver (its on the dell cd) to continue, OR, you can set that BIOS's hard drive controls to ATA or LEGACY (legacy would likely work best, but youd have no 'raid' functions, but who sets up raid drives on a notebook?). Your last option is use the dell discs to restore, and inssert the windws disc when prompted

I have a asus AV7 with a amd 64 bit processor 2 gigs of ram windows Xp Pro 7 dvd burners NEC 16x and 2 120 gig 133HZ.sata drives and 4 133 ATA hard drives 133 maxtor 120 gig configured in a raid stripped 0...


There is a glitch on those AV7 boards ata controler I think. Check the website for the new drivers supposedly they help, but all they did was crash my raid after I installed them. I ended up cloning the whole raid over to a single large sata drive and put in an ide to sata card (non raid unfortunately) and the problem went away. I only had the problem under very heavy disk loading. It seemed to not be quite so bad when I added some additional cooling aimed at the motherboard. As to if it will help your software problem I am unsure. However the only time mine did the mini dump was when I was doing heavy video editing work and after nixing the raid it fixed it, But then again a bad drive in a raid can cause that also.

My Computer did not access Western Digital Hard Disk, Model No. WD 1600 AABB Caviar SATA.


Good morning! Please make sure that the drive’s power and SATA cables are properly connected. If the Serial ATA host adapter card is installed in a 64-bit PCI slot on the system motherboard, move the card to a 32-bit slot.

Verify that only one power cable (either SATA or legacy) is connected to the drive. Check to see that the power connector and SATA interface cable are securely attached and that the
SATA host adapter card is properly seated in the PCI slot.

The Serial ATA interface connects each drive in a point-to-point configuration with the built-in SATA port on the motherboard or with the SATA host adapter card; therefore eliminating the master/slave relationship as required with EIDE. Each drive utilizes its own
cable for data transfer rates. Jumper settings for Western Digital Serial ATA hard drives are mainly used for enterprise storage environments.

Most third party controller cards and RAID adapters are recognized as a SCSI device under Device Manager. This is normal and will not affect your drive or system performance.

To verify if the Serial ATA drive is recognized by the system, Right-click on the My Computer icon, select Properties, left-click on the Hardware tab, and click on Device Manager in the window. Double-click on Disk Drives. Your new Western Digital Serial ATA drive should be listed as a "SCSI Disk Device" or "Serial ATA Disk Device." If not, make sure that all cables are securely attached and that your system BIOS has been properly configured. regards

Dvd/cd drive isnt recognized


First determine if this is a hardware issue or driver issue by going to the setup at boot and pressing whatever Acer has as a setup entry like F2, Delete, etc. then making sure that the drives are listed and the proper bus enabled. If no DVD drive is listed then a connection is not made. If it is listed then verify that the primary, secondary, IDE, SATA, etc. options are enabled. Some drives only open by right-clicking the drive icon whereas most open with a physical button as well.

HOW TO CONFIGURE RAID


I needed to see your board & can at this site. http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=493&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=1&LanID=0

This is good for you as well. It shows me & you that your board can handel 4 each DMA/ATA-133 (Ultra) IDE Hard drives/ CD/DVD drives IDE-1Primary & IDE-2 Primary Slave. Each can run 2 IDE drives. Also 4 each Serial ATA SATA's. Two separate SATA controllers with integrated PHYs, each supporting two
drives in master mode. In your manual on pg.32 & 33 will help you to setup a RAID if you wish. Or you can also set the RAID to IDE which will allow you to use all your SATA hard disks as a single drive without setting up a RAID system. The site above supplies all your drivers needed & manual. If you need more help please let me know here.
Luck!

Motherboard


Most of the new systems and motherboards support SATA connectors onboard. In your case there is none as you have found. So the best option is always upgrading to a new motherboard in case you need to add more SATA drives. You can also try to find SATA add-on cards, may a little costly types. These cards use PCI interface and very easy to install but hard to find one. I hpoe you could find one from a hardware store near you. If your motherboard has ordinary PCI slots then the SATA adpter will be less costly, otherwise (if it features a PCI-X slot) it will be costly. Following is a simple description on what the market has to offer: SATA II - 150 4Ports PCI-X with NCQ, Raid 0+1, Raid 0 and Raid 1 ! You can upgrade your desktop computer to have four Channels Serial ATA Generation 1 and Generation 2 transfer rate of 1.5 Gbps. The board provides a 64bit, 133 MHz PCI interface on the host side and four, fully compliant Serial ATA ports on the device side to access Serial ATA storage devices such as hard disk drive, ZIP drive, CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM. Note: Fault tolerance: RAID 0 (Striping), RAID 1 (Mirroring), RAID 0+1 (mirrored-stripping) and RAID 1+S (Mirrored-Sparing) improve the data performance and provide the data redundancy and rebuilding.

Samsung sata hard disk detection problem while windows setup


Hi, Typically, Windows XP installer does not provide full support for SATA HDs (drives) nor for all kinds of SATA Controllers (on the motherboard or add-on card). However, Windows XP installer provided a way out by prompting the user to press F6 and load the necessary drivers in the FDD. The diskette containing the drivers may either come from: manufacturer of motherboard; manufacturer of controller; or manufacturer of HD. If none was provided nor available, then perhaps you can DIY (do-it-yourself). More often than not, it is inside the MB installer/driver CD in D:\Drivers\SATA or something like that and copy to a floppy diskette. Alternately, you can download from the manufacturer's website, decompress and copy to FD. When the Windows XP installation CD puts out the message "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver", press "F6" as instructed. Thereafter, press "S" to specify additional device on the next pop up screen. Insert the driver floppy disk in and press enter to continue. If the floppy disk is made successfully, the installation program will ask for selecting driver. Please then select "Motherboard chipset (VIA, Intel etc Serial ATA RAID Controller(Windows XP)".) After the SATA driver loaded, Windows XP will now recognize the SATA HDD, proceed and continue to install Windows XP. If you do not have a FDD, one of your option is to DIY a slipstream WinXP installer CD. This is better explained in this article . Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need fur4ther information. Good luck and kind regards.
