Trying to find a solution to this, Firmware???
Both drives have a manufacturing date of December 2013
I am having issues with an optical drive on either of the 2 Intel SATA Ports, only sometimes it is listed as a device in BIOS and Boot menu when rebooted a few times, it sometimes seems to crash the SATA controller on boot.
The drive is sometimes not detected in Windows or Hangs Windows.
I have had the drive replaced and the same thing is happening with the replacement, it's meant for my AsRock Q1900DC-ITX with a J1900 celeron, but it also happens on my Asus Maximus Hero VII Z97
If I switch the drive to the AsMedia controller it works perfectly!
The Lite-On firmware utility cannot connect to the server, so can't find an update using their utility!
The drive is listed in Windows as "Slimtype DVD A DL8A4SH HC23)"
I have attached a log of what happens in Linux when trying to initialise the drive (When it's not detected in BIOS)
Any help would be gratefully appreciated, I have looked for alternatives, but there are very little slot load drives in the UK, this model seems to be the only one listed on most UK stores.
