[QUOTE=mciahel;1936095]Hi,This is one of the known issues with VIA based controllers and SATA optical drives. You might have a look into the FAQ (see my signature).
Install a SATA controller card with Silicon Image chipset (3x12 or 3x14 type). That should do fine with optical drives if the BASE bios from SiI is applied.
So the burner does indeed supports bitsetting right ? !!
Well, thats so unbelievable weird that my via sata sudden refuses bitsetting on that drive!! WHy u might ask?
Because, i have had once an Liteon 20A1S hooked up on that same pci sata card and booktype setting was no problem at all !!!
So buying an sillicon based card is the only way ehh? Well, i dont know where to search in my hometown to find these. But if u 200% sure that this will solve my issue ill order one at an website shop.
P.S: AUTO BITSET doesnt happend NOT EVEN for my DVD DL media
thanks for ur thoughts,
almost forget about the bitsetting feature of media!!
Is it that when media is bitsetted to -rom will play better that way,
or is it recommended because it simply will either accept the dvd (right away) or not AT ALL u know?
And as thing are not bad enough my psu fan stopped working a
I had to replace that fan whit one of my case fans
So, let me know ur findings about this issue regarding samsing and sata cards please!!
Ofcourse ill look into that faq fromout ur singature miciahel
thanks for all this
well, i just looked into that faq.
I already have tried al sort of things that has been suggested, but no go!!!
Can those types of problems whit opticals even be solved whit drivers or firmwares!?? Even when they vary from version going from old to new and vice versa?
I have adressed this issue already onsite via arena HQ.
Also about the oem identifying checkup instead of 1 (the number loudmout get) i get a big FAT 0 thats all!!
And to conclude, i might end up buying an silicon card just as LOUDMOUTH did!! Another purchase !!
