Looking for a compatible SATA DVD-RW

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I smoked my Gigabyte P35C-DS3R, and have replaced it with a DFI Lanparty DK-X38. Unfortunately the DFI only has one SATA controller (the ICH9R) and it is not compatible to run a RAID, and my Samsung DVD-RW drive on it.

My Gigabyte had no issues, since it had two different SATA controllers. I was able to run the DVD on one, and my RAID on the ICH9R. Does anyone have the DFI DK-X38, and run a raid and SATA DVD at the same time? If you do what DVD drive are you using (newegg/clubit links would be great)?

Thanks in advance,
C.

I know I "can" do both, and I should be able to do both, but I can not do both. If I plug in my optical (port 3/4/5/6 doesn't matter), the RAID BIOS refuses to come up and throws an error about a Device ID (clearly the optical since RAID works with it unplugged).

Thanks for that forum link, however it didn't have any new information related to my problem.

Have you tried using more than one SATA DVD-RW? I have two SATA DVD-RW's running in plugs 2 and 3, w/2-80GB SATA HDD (Raid0) plugs 0 and 1, without any issues at all. Just a thought, but maybe if you Raid plugs 0 and 1, you have to have something plugged into another pair.

That's a great suggestion, however I only own 1 SATA Optical Drive
