[QUOTE=Dartman;2517057]I got this one from a E-bay seller and it’s flashable and seems to support opticals even in raid mode.
[B]SYBA SY-PCI40010 PCI[/B] Has the 3124 chipset in it by the way.
I’ve seen the exact same card on New Egg and amazon before too and it supports SATA 300 just in case you actually do want to put newer hard drives on it.
It was 39.09 shipped from Accstation and is around that price everywhere else except maybe no free shipping, depends on sellers mood.
Works in win7 though I had to use the Vista raid drivers to make mine happy even though 7 does have a raid driver that supposedly supports it. the 7 non raid driver installed fine when I flashed it over to try that side.
It would accept 2 burners mostly fine but when I added a third it had the yellow exclamation point and wouldn’t fully use the third drive and 7 wouldn’t shut down properly.
Finally I just hot plugged each drive one at a time and then it found and installed each one in turn and so far all 3 now work fine.
Here’s the link in case anyone wants to try one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120563788791[/QUOTE]
I just ordered this Syba card from the Egg - thank you for the info that it seems to support opticals in win7 - this is what I wanted to use it for - do you think I should try drivers from Sil. Image website - or just use the Vista x64 drivers that Syba recomends - which bios did you use? You mentioned this card is flashable…
BTW - I use to have a '68 Dodge Dart slant ^ 225 cu.in - ran for 32 years - didn’t die - just moved and couldn’t take it with me - at 105,000 I did the head - it had 155 Lbs. in each cylinder - nice car…
