Since a few weeks I have a new PC. Initially I only had the DVD-burner (SH-S183A, SATA) and everything was OK. I have 2x Samsung HD321KJ in RAID.
After 2 weeks of usage I recieved my DVD-reader (SH-D163A, SATA) and added it to the PC. My problem now is that Windows (XP, SP2, fully patched) is not recognized. I reinstalled Windows using updated drivers (Intel Matrix) but it still didn’t solve my problem. When I disconnect one of the two the other is working OK. So it’s a conflict in Windows when both devices are connected.
In the Intel Matrix Console, both drives are shown correctly (same in BIOS).
My motherboard : Asus P5B Deluxe WiFi.
As far as I know, all things (BIOS, firmware, drivers) are up to date.
Anyone an idea what I might try next to solve the issue.
One more, since I tried switching SATA ports the second DVD SATA device shows as a simple CD-ROM in Device Manager of Windows, but it’s not working correctly.
Thanks for any reactions and ideas.
ps. just to be sure, I’m talking about the following two models,
