  1. hello forum members
    i bought Asus Sata DVDRW Model: DRW1814BLT
    my win xp doesn't recognize the drive,
    my motherboard is Albatron PX865PEC Pro (latest firmware)
    i also updated the intel chipset, and it doesn't help

    i have 3 ide drives
    primary master - WD 60GB
    primary slave - WD 120GB
    secondary master - NEC 3550A

    in the bios i see the asus drive, but still the xp won't recognize it

    any suggestions?

    you will need to install sata drivers for sata devices.

    where i can find sata drivers for my MB (Albatron PX865PEC Pro)
    i cant find any on their website, and the newest firmware that improves sata compatibility is not available for my MB, its only available for PX865PEC Pro V2
