Ok I am hoping you all can help me setup a definitive thread on IDE controllers. I presently have 2 systems with Promise Ultra 133 Controllers and had nothing but greif getting them to run right. After reading thru alot of threads here I can see these aren’t good to use for CD/DVD burners. I am looking for any feedback negitive and positive you have had with any controllers available for purchase.
Is there a brand that you can disable bios so it boots faster?
What out there that is speedy any maybe configurable from device manager for speed setting or all do it automatically?
What ones work with all devices with no problems?
If you see this thread helps you give it a bump to keep it going
