I’m using a Samsung SATA 203B drive on the JMicron controller on my ASUS P5B Deluxe. I can’t use it on the Intel SATA ports because I have the RAID drivers installed, and optical drives don’t seem to get along with the RAID drivers. The JMicron controller is setup as IDE compatibility mode, so the Samsung shows up as an Ultra DMA 5 drive in Device Manager. I should probably also note that I have Daemon Tools 4.10 installed. Every time that my computer comes out of hibernation or standby, the Samsung is no longer listed in My Computer and refresh doesn’t make it appear. Restarting brings the drive back in My Computer.
Any ideas as to what I can do prevent the drive from disappearing?
