I’ve got two SATA hard drives connected to the MB… No problems
I’ve got one PATA Sony DVD-RW connected… No problems
I’ve got one SATA Samsung DVD-RW connected… PROBLEM sometimes
The drive is a Samsung SH-S203B.
During boot-up, the system will occassionally lock up at “detecting drives”. It locks up specifically when trying to detect the Samsung drive. The system always boots perfectly if I disconnect the Samsung drive from the MB.
I have tried connecting the drive to a different SATA connector.
I have tried different SATA cables.
I have RMAed to Samsung drive, for an identical model.
My drivers are up to date (nForce 9.64).
My Samsung firmware is up to date (SB04).
None of these has solved the problem.
