Hello...recently bought Asus A8S-X (Sckt 939) mobo w/AMD X2 4200 cpu. I can't get the secondary IDE to "see" anything. I have tried:
setting bios to "not installed"
updating SIS chipset/mobo/IDE controller drivers
changing pin positions
The primary IDE sees both HDD, I want a lite-on DVD burner and a cd-rw on the secondary IDE. When DVD is slave on primary IDE it works fine. I'm beginning to think this mobo is garbage and needs to be sacrificed to the fire gods. Are there any free aps to assess it? I've been looking for answers for a week...does ANYONE have an idea of what the problem could be?
