You said you disconnected the old drive and connected the new drive with jumpers set to master. Set it up that way and it should work fine. Everything works great — no problems.

Help!, my new Asus A8V won’t recognize my 1 SATA drive

I have also borrowed a known working SATA drive and using the cables disconnected from the new drive connected it and this is laso not recognised. Thought- Did you try asta revert your drivers back to windows standard controllers? I do not need or want any kind of RAID, i just want the computer to recognise the new disks!


I just used the two regular ports with the VIA controller and never had any problems. I really appreciate everyone’s help on this!

Update the MB Bios to latest version. I had thought that your drive was like ones I’ve seen, and the jumpers could be used to force a legacy mode.

The mobo is an A8V Deluxe. You must log in or sign up to reply here. Tried installing a fresh copy of XP to be told no drives were detected on the system. The drive was an OEM product, could be it is bad, I just have to figure out how to confirm this. I have had some difficulties with mine, because the SATA connectors are so fucked-up.

I have located the Samsung Drive Manager software, however it is a utility that produces the necessary a88v and when I press make disk it keeps telling me that the write protected tab needs to be closed and it is, so getting nowhere. I tried 3 different sticks of RAM in different sockets, same problem. If I select IDE asuw the Promise controller I get a nasty message about incorrect hardware settings and the system locks up.
