Re: can't get sata connection to work on new blu-ray rom
Oilers5, let's check a few basics first. Double check your dvd's data & power connections first. Everything good? Next, you need to get into your bios. Your blu-ray is connected to the SATA controller on the motherboard. Though I do not doupt the device manager your bios must see the device before windows will. At the main menue in your bios the DVD player should be listed (depending on model # of board) at the main menue. Than make sure the SATA controller is enabled, you'll find this in advanced menue. This is where you'll need your manual. If the dvd is the only SATA connected to the system you should have the option to use the SATA & not the RAID. If you have SATA hard drives connected & your dvd ends up on the RAID end you still should have the option to set the RAID to IDE. This way you will not need to run the RAID software. Once you get the bios adjusted windows should see the blu-ray as a SATA dvd player.
Oilers5 if what I have listed has not helped or fixed your problem could you post back with your model no# of the motherboard. Mfg's name ex; (dell, HP...). Than I can download your manual & check what settings need to be adjusted. Is this the only SATA device your trying to get to run? Is your current hard drive a SATA or IDE? How many?
Thanks Oilers5. I look forward to your next post.

With sata there are two cables, just like ide. One is the power and the other is for data. The data cable goes from the device to the motherboard. The power comes from the power supply. If your power supply does not have a sata connection you can purchase an adapter that will turn an available 4pin Molex into a sata connection.
This model is now discontinued. The replacement is DUP-DP-AS3-11B. *NOTE: Item is not compatible with LG GH22LS30 (Directron part number DVR-GH22LS30)

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. :)
Check the SATA/IDE connection and make sure it is securely connected to the mother board and the drive, and that the power connector is securely connected to the drive. If you cannot see the drive in the BIOS, then you have a bad drive or bad connection on the mother board.
Make sure the dvd drive ribbon cable is in the socked as tight as it can be, and it is on the secandry socket on the motherboard, not the one that connects to your hd. Put the dvd-rom on the last socket of the ribbon cable and adjust the jumber on the back of the dvd-rom to master.
Take all other ide or sata divices out and put them back afterwards.
Hi stokarek, With respect to SATA drives. All are master drives. As you mentioned if there is a fight between drives the trouble can be settled in the bios. I gather the WD160GB drive holds windows on it & the WD is connected to SATA 1 port. Enter you're bios & go to the Boot section. Open you're manual to section 2.6 boot menu page 2-32. Make sure you're WD is the only hard disk drive listed. After you add the Blu-Ray (To SATA 2 port), (its pin setting should be set as master. Than go back to the boot menu & make sure the Blu-Ray drive is listed under the WD drive. Keep in mind for the future that if you want to boot to the Blu-Ray drive you'll need to press the F8 key at boot up. Windows select boot device window will open & high-light the Blu-Ray & press enter so the Blu-Ray will boot. Windows should no longer stall. If this does not work try switching the pin on the blu-ray to slave. (I'm not sure there is even a pin setting on the blu-ray drive. Never the less the bios boot order is the boss.
