[QUOTE=C0deKing;1994716]I don’t know a lot about Vista but it looks like you have an IDE problem. First make sure you are using the MS IDE driver and then try deleting the IDE channel that the drive is connected to and restart.
Also try another IDE cable.[/QUOTE]
wow thanks so much for the reply.
i actually think i have the ASUS drivers installed, but i just uninstalled all everything under IDE in my device manager and rebooted.
I tried another IDE cabl with no luck.
