Yeah, back in the day when I had my Abit NF7-S rev. 2.0, I accidently installed the IDE drivers and my primary 60GB drive showed up fine, but my two 160s didn't. No matter what I did. Uninstalling the driver worked, but the Windows default driver wouldn't reinstall upon rebooting and the only way to get the controller to work again was by reinstalling Windows.

Talk about a HUGE pain in the ass.

I also have storage problems with my 6100/MCP51 board Asus K8N-VM nForce 4 410

1. 6100/MCP51 doesn't seem to support NCQ. It's a very new board/chipset, what is going on??? (I need NCQ in my server or it gets veeerrryy slow when I work with large files)

2. I couldn't burn with my Samsung Writemaster SATA DVD-RW and if I tried to copy files from the drive I would BSOD.

3. I went into Control Panel - Add Remove programs and uninstalled the nVidia IDE drivers and everything is OK!.

I never encountered file corrutions on either of SATA or IDE HDs with nVidia IDE drivers.

I initially bought a ATI Radeon Xpress board from MSI but returnet it because it had very high CPU usage and low transfer speeds with a Gigabit Ethernet PCI adapter.


I'll most likely return this Asus K8N-VM too even if it's only a driver issue. Last time I waited for a driver fix I ended up waiting a year, several drivers no fix!

Is there a VIA board out there that has good PCI performance and SATA NCQ?

Maximum PC ( I wish I still had the issue) reported this as a problem with the newest Maxtor drives. This was only 2-3 months ago. According to them maxtor was addressing the problem. My wd's have been fine *knocks on wood* Good luck with it.
