Question about Gigabyte GA-8S648FX Motherboard
Ok, you have 2 x UDMA ATA 133/100/66 Bus Master IDE ports on that motherboard, so you can support 4 ide devices. It is important that you split your devices between the 2 available ide channels (each channel has a seperate ribbon cable). For example if you have 1 hard drive and 1 cd drive you'd want to place each on a seperate channel. If you have 2 hard drives and 1 cd drive it's best to place each hard drive on a seperate channel and the cd drive on the same channel as one of the hard drives. You have to make sure the jumper settings on the drives are correct (1 master and 1 slave) when placing 2 drives on the same channel for example. Most likely your jumper settings are not correct and are causing this problem. The jumpers are located on the rear of the drive near where the power cable is plugged into the drive. Most hard drives have the jumper setting printed on the hard drive. Once the jumpers are correct you should be ok.
