i have found many threds concerning this topic on many web sites, but i can still not fix my problem. i just built a system with AMD athlon 64 3500+ socket 939, 1 gig if geil ram, K8N neo4 MSI moboard. i have 2 SATA Hard drives and a plextor SATA dvd burner, which i have come to hate. it reades fine, well i think it dose but im not sure. i have been getting the BSOD while installing games. anyway i think that is unrelated. to get to the point the burneer dose not burn cd's or dvd's, ive tried nero, roxio, the plextor software, alcohol, and windows but nothing works. i figured it was a bad drive so i threw it in my other computer for a test and it worked fine. that computer has no SATA hard drives jsut the burner is SATA. the moboard is a MSI k7ns delta2 with an AMD sempron 2400+ socket A in it and 256 megs of geil ram. Ive never used SATA before so i may have the layout wrong. it is like this
SATA2 = hard drive 2
SATA1 = hard drive 1
SATA4 = empty
SATA3 = Plextor burner
i have turned raid off on SATA 1-4, and have no clue how to get my second bank of SATA 5-8 connectors to show up in the bios. an anyonr help or should i jsut return this wonderful plextor product adn get a sony or something .
