Pentium 4 2.8ghz 1 gig ram. Purchased this tower from ebay, turned it on to find the dvd drive is not showing in my computer. checked in device manager and not there. So I checked in the bios not detected. Checked all the connections nothing happening. Had a look on the techy forums and the general conclusion was a dead dvd drive. so purchased the lg dvd drive and all that happened when I installed it was raid controller appeared in device manager under other devices with a yellow question mark. I have no idea what this is or if it has anything to do with the dvd drive.The drive is LG GH22NS50 Black Dual Layer DVD?RW Writer Please help!!!!
You may need to enable the SATA controllers in the BIOS
In almost all computer BIOS on motherboards that have SATA controllers, you can run SATA controllers, and SATA drives connected to them, in at least two if not three modes - IDE mode (emulates IDE), AHCI mode (a.k.a. SATA mode), and sometimes RAID mode (SATA mode with RAID capability).
It looks as if XP as detected it in RAid mode and you need to load the correct driver, in device manager, right click the drive select properties and tell us the error code (10?).
