IDE conections for Asus P5W DH Deluxe

  neil666 22:09 09 Oct 2006

Just built core 2 duo 6700 with Asus PswDH deluxe motherboard. The problem is that i am unsure which connection on the motherboard the dvd rw connect to . Is it jmicron ide connector or theintel ich7r ide connector. Also my 2 sata maxtor 300 gig drives are only saying they both have only 127gig capacity

There only appears to be one IDE, which is located by the looks of things near to the PC-I slots, which is a little weird

With regards to the 127GB capacity go to windows updates click here and download SP2 and that will fix the problem

Interesting that the jmicron connector says doesn't support ATAPI. Normally optical drives are ATAPI - so I would put it on the intel connector.

madboy33©® - I think you must have the wrong board - the correct one is as neil666 describes.
