drpino, thanks for the response!
I will rma but wanted to wait a bit and see what affect the new fw had with this tla.
As no one here is using it, I'm just curious that way
I have till november to rma.
I think I have solved the problem anyway.
Read a post (cant recall where) and someone had drive corruption on sata on this mb.
turned out we were using a modified bios and sata controller drivers from siig.
Flashed to asus official and asus sataraid and its working at least for now.
What are the problems/bad drive parts anyway?
I saw the news but it didnt mention anything specific.
Anyone got any ideas? laser? chip? memory?
As this drive seems to write/ read well, except for a few things that have been my fault.
Everything I've burned has worked in other players too.
But I'll most likely rma just to be on the safe side.
