anyone got one of these babies ? I'm having terrible trouble getting the SATA to work, and the CD that came with it is unreadable. if you have one of these boards, I'd appreciate it if you could email me the CDs contents so I can recreate it.

Also, if you got SATA to work in JBOD mode, which BIOS are you running, which SATA drivers did you use, and did you have to make any changes to BIOS settings in order to see the drive ?

thanks in advance .....

I have taken my original floppy disk and made an executable to floppy from image to make the floppy disk just like the one I used when I set up raid 0.

I have read the manual two or three times and I got mixed answers from my reading. Suffice it to say; I am only sure it works with raid 0 and know nothing about a single drive which is what a single drive in jbod would be. Not really sure you would even 'set' jbod with just a single drive.

You will need to email me at and I will send you this exe that will build a floppy.


EDIT: more information...

Thanks very much for the offer of help. I've also got a response from DFI tech support, firstly to confirm that what I've been doing was right, and then, when I advised I've now used every single version of Via 8237 drivers i could find, they have recommended that I RMA the board.

So it's back to the suppliers.

But thankyou, you've been a great help.
