I have a major problem with this drive:
LG GH20LS10 - SATA SuperMulti
Connected to this motherboard:
Gigabyte GA-M56S-S3 - nForce 560 chipset
The mentioned drive is only working in PIO mode. While it switches to UDMA5 after uninstalling the IDE controller, the system freezes as soon as I put any disc in it. The Event viewer shows multiple ID9 atapi errors (didn’t respond in time), and it switches back to PIO.
The motherboard offers SATA2, and the HDD works fine with it (in UDMA6 mode). The discs can be read in PIO mode, but burning isn’t possible. I thought that lowering the access mode to UDMA2 will help (through registry hack “MasterDeviceTimingModeAllowed”), but it didn’t. The BIOS is the newest one, and I didn’t find any option to force the lower data rate. Also, I didn’t find new firmware for the burner. Switching to different SATA ports (HDD & burner) didn’t help.
Anyone know what to do to fix the issue? Thanks for reading!
