P5Q-E + RAID0 w/ SATA DVD drive

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just got a second Raptor X and make a RAID0 array and I also got a SATA DVD burner the same day to get rid of that pesky old IDE cable. The drive is a Sony AD-7220S that I got off Newegg. Everything works fine except when I try to burn anything. No error occurs during burning but after it closes the session the activity light on the DVD burner keeps blinking and won't stop until I reboot my PC. I can't eject my disks either until I reboot. I've tried various burning utilies and they all result in the same effect (Nero, Imgburn, vLite's built in utility and even the built in Windows app). I updated the firmware to 1.1 and got no luck with that either.

I've never really messed with RAID setups much but everything seems to work fine with it. I set SATA config to RAID in BIOS (which makes me lose control of the SATA configuration it normally shows on the main menu). I had the DVD drive connected to port 3 and I've tried moving it to 4/5/6 to no avail. I have no problems reading disks from the drive. And every once in awhile after a reboot a disk I've tried to burn will actually work (maybe 1/10). I've tried various brands all of which were batches that worked on my old setup and never had any problems with those disks. I looked up this drive's recommended disks which are brands that I'm trying.

Normally I'd just rip everything out and put my old drive back in to see if it's working fine, but I just modded my case for cable management. I'd rather not rewire that again if I can help it. Am I just missing something I need to change in BIOS or am I setting something up wrong? Obviously the drive could be faulty but I just want to cover all my bases before ripping it out and having to rewire that mess again.

I run a P5Q, but I'm not familiar with your P5Q-E, if you don't get any success you can get a RAID PCI card, but I'm not confident the RAID is your problem. If you have another RAID DVD Drive or one you can borrow off a friend try plugging that in instead of the DVD Drive you have, if it has the same problems it's your M-Board, if not take your drive back on a warranty or something.
