    Default ASRock x58 Extreme, odd hardware behavior

    I don't know what's going on, but it's crippling my ability to use the computer, which has an ASRock x58 Extreme motherboard, hardly 3 months old.

    1) When I have my RAID 1 external harddrive setup plugged into the esata port, it randomly disconnects. I'll be working on a project, and then the drive is no longer recognized, as if it were unplugged. This is entirely detrimental to a stable system.

    2) I have two DVD drives (1 IDE, 1 SATA) that, while recognized as being present in both the BIOS and windows 7 - are no longer being read from, even though they spin up, and show activity when a disk is in the drive. Meanwhile, my harddrives show up and are usable.

    I am using the newest BIOS 2.30, both dvd drives were functioning perfectly prior to whatever caused this and then wham! - No more functioning drives.

    I have cleared/reset the CMOS, tried to reinstall Windows 7 (64 bit)... but I can't because the optical disc drives are not being read from, despite having set them as the only boot device.

    Help! I use my computer for work, and it is out of commission because of these issues!

    and Thank you for your time.

    Are you using the latest chipset drivers, and whatever driver your board has for eSATA addon chip?
