Hello,
I’m running XP PRO SP1 on a custom built computer. Chaintech CT-7NJS MB with Promise RAID set to 0 strip 1. Can anybody explain to me why my Plexor 708A DVD/R/RW and my Lite-On LTR-12101B CD/R/RW show up in my device manager under DVD/CD-ROM Drives as SCSI devices?
Dumb Question?

Hi

I’ve got a motherboard that has 4 ide slots, the second pair being the optional Promise raid slots. Any of my devices connected to these slots show as SCSI so it would appear that this is pretty normal. I know that this doesn’t explain the why of it , I think that’s just how it is.

Thanks Tim,
I was afraid there was problem. Good to know this is normal for my MB.
