Question about ASUS K8V-SE Deluxe Motherboard

1 Answer

Hard drives show up in BIOS but not in My computer? WHATS UP?

I hooked up the CD-RW PRI selected to Master and moved the DVD from the Secondary Socket to the Primary Socket and made it a slave (I changed the DVD from a Master to a Slave being I added it to the Primary Socket) and now I have the CD-RW sharing the socket). I took two ATA hard drives and hooked them to the Secondary socket. Everything (CD-RW, DVD, Quantum ATA Hard Drive and the Seagate Ultra ATA hard drive show up in the BIOS but NOT in My Computer (Using Windows XP Prof.. The Quantum hard drive showed up in the hardware stack in windows. The Seagate I could not get Windows XP to boot and got the following error message (back slash V=2 to DDO command line and reboot) so I disconnected it and was able to boot Windows XP. I think the problem with the Seagate was I had Windows 98se operating system on it even though the Seagate showed up in BIOS. I had the Quantum hard drive sit up as slave and the Seagate selected to Line select. I’m new at this so what can I do? Quick Note: The Ultra ATA Seagate has Windows 98se operating system installed on it and I thought I could have a selection to run ether XP or 98se or access the data on the Seagate and tranfer it to the XP hard drive then wipe the 98se operationg off the Seagate and use the Seagate (being its 80G) as a extra storage unit. Can this be done?

    I wired the Hard drives and the CD-RW and DVD as you said and changed the sittings in the BIOS and Windows booted and the the Hard drives showed up in My computer. Thnak you. The only thing which was hard was difficult was getting the cables connected to the Hard drives and the Optical drives because of the way the computer case placement requirements required me to arrange the uints in the case. I had to arrange the stack as Slave CD-RW Primary, Slave DVD Secondary, Master Primary hard drive then Master Secondary hard drive.

You should not use line select on any of the drives at this point. Set the jumpers on the components to one master and one slave on each channel. Personally I would put one HD and one optical drive on each channel and make the optical drives the slaves but that's not required. Win98 uses a different file system than XP (FAT32 compared to the newer NTFS) but you can still use the drive. I would copy all the files you want to save and then reformat it using NTFS for better performance.

Boot into XP, both HD should show up when the jumpers are set correctly. If they still do not show up go into your BIOS and double check that all master/slave designations match what you have set the jumpers to.

Master/Slave designation is determined by jumpers on IDE drives. Most drives have adequate markings on them to identify these jumper positions. If not marked clearly, you will need the manufacturer's data to determine that designation.
If you are curious about a working system just power-up in set-up mode (usually by depressing (f1-or-f2) during boot-up sequence, your system-bios will display this information for you.

I installed a LiteOn SOHR-5239v cd-rw drive. It doesn't show up on my computer and i looked on the website and couldn't find the driver.


Ok thats probably your problem. J
You will have to remove the DVD drive once it is removed look at the back it will look like this,
753d9c5.jpg
I have indicated where the jumpers are located. The jumpers tell the computer how to read the drive (every IDE drive hard drive, cd/dvd rom, floppy drive has them) the options are Master (meaning it is the main drive), Slave (secondary drive), and Cable Select (the cable decides how the drive will be read).
There are two ways to connect the drive to the motherboard one is to split the IDE Cable with the hard drive the other is the drive has its own IDE Cable and plugs in next to the hard drive.
If you are sharing the cable with the hard drive configure the jumper as Cable Select,
If your drive connects with its own cable select Master.
To do this pull out the jumper and insert it in the location you want.

Installed hp dvd r/rw drive, computer does not recognize hareware


You may want to check your Master/ Slave or CS settings on the back of drive.
If you are useing one cable, IDE cable for both the HD and CD, the Hard Drive sould be set to Master and the secondary drive ( CD ) will be set to slave.
If two cables are used, both should be set to master.
You can F-10 into your BIOS settings to check and see if machine is seeing the connection changes.

IDE Drive not found on startup


I am assuming that the cd and DVD drives are on the Ide right ?? thats because one of the drives jumper is set wrong. If you take a look at the back you will find it saying master / slave / Cable select with eighter a 6 to 10 pins. basically one needs to be set to master and connected with the top piece of the cable and the other set to slave and connected with the middle of the cable. and the other jacks into the main board. If i misunderstood you please respond correcting me as soon as possible so i can be of further help.

Help switching Samsung sn-m242 cd burner from master to slave


If you are to be using two DVD drives and want one as a slave, hook up both together as you would a hard drive with the ribbon cable. Restart the computer in CMOS by hitting F4 (may be different on your system) If you navigate a little with the arrow keys and the enter button, you will see boot options. Often the DVD player is first or second after Floppy and the hard drive last. Now you should see two DVD drives (if thats what you have), just select it to be a slave. This also works if you have only one DVD drive and want it to be a slave. Just select your DVD device to be the second boot option. Windows XP detects hard ware on its own and should not need any firmware unless the burner is made for Windows 95. If this does not answer your question, let me know.
