Recently got an LG GGW-H20L Bluray/DVD writer.
My system does not have any SATA ports so I use a PCI SATA card.
There are two things on the PCI card one is a SATA hard drive and the other is the LG burner. The SATA hard drive will happily run in UDMA mode 6 but the LG burner will not play ball and refuses to go above PIO mode 4
I have tested 3 cards, the chipsets are:
- Sil 3112A
- Sil 3512
- VIA 6421A
The LG burner has problems with all of them, while the hard drive is happy with all of them.
I have the latest firmware for my cards and Y02 on the LG bluray burner. I have also replaced the cable so it’s not that either.
Can a SATA hard drive and Optical drive exist on the a same PCI card ?
Is the LG burner SATA 1 or SATA II … and would it make a difference ?
Does anyone have a contact for within LG, the links on their websites dont work.
