Plextor 712sa on a Maxtor SATA 150 pci card

#1

hi folks,

i try to connect the plextor 712sa (sata) on my maxtor SATA 150 pci car, where a maxtor 250G is already connected.
But the dvd isn’t detected when booting , HD does oK.

But in the system i do find the dvd, but when i put in a dvd, system hangs.

I contacted both supports of maxtor and plextor.
Maxtor gave me a new driver version, isntalled, but no can do.
Still waiting for the next answer.

Plextor said the Maxtor pci card only support HD, not optical devices like DVD.

any one has an idea?
is it a bad combination of hardware, is there something wtrong, is it the system ?

i’m dying to try the new dvd-burner :wink:

You may want to have this post moved and do some reading in the plextor forum.
From what I’ve read about the plextor sata drives is they have problems with PCI SATA controller cards and may not work. Then need the sata to be part of the mother board. But you can read more and maybe get better help in the plextor forum. Good luck.

My best guess would be that the info Plextor gave you is correct, the Maxtor PCI card only supports S-ATA hard disks and not optical drives. For more information on which motherboards/chipsets work with S-ATA optical drives, read through this thread. Good luck!

You should contact a mod and have them delete the other two threads you started about this subject. :slight_smile:
