OK, I am about to try my 2nd Plextor 760a after the 1st one stopeed readind pressed DVD. Having read the posts regarding Plextor compatability problems with NVIDIA IDE drivers I have cleaned them out and returned to good old MS IDE drivers.
Snag is, I want to run the NVIDIA RAID setup for a couple of SATA’s and I can’t get a mirrored drive combo to work in XP after setting up the array in BIOS. I am pretty sure its because I am not using the NVIDIA IDE drivers as per the support guide.
My current setup is as follows -
Primary IDE Master - LG 4167 DVD Burner
Primary IDE Slave - NEC 4550 Burner
Secondary IDE Master - 120GB Hard Drive
Secondary IDE Slave - Free (for the Plextor to go)
SATA 1 300GB New Drive Slot
SATA 2 - 300GB New Drive Slot
SATA 3 - Existing Drive
SATA 4 - Existing Drive
So my plan is to put the Plextor on the Secondary Slave slot and have my new mirrored SATA RAID array on SATA 1/2
A snapshot of my current IDE drivers is shown. Can anyone help with which driver is which here so I know which ones to convert to the NVIDIA IDE drivers whilst retaining the MS ones for the standard IDE channels?
