    Unhappy EP43-DS3L sata issue

    I've just bought a GA-P43-DS3L MO PC,(bios F8).
    on the old PC i used an IDE HDD for the OS,and a 320G SATA HDD for data (music pics etc)
    when moving to the new MO,Ive reinstalled the XP on the IDE drive ,which works fine,but the SATA drive is not accessable.
    its shows on bios, and on device manager marked (x) "dynamic unreadable"

    what can i do to get my SATA working?
    do i need RAID drivers? (no RAID drivers on the MO CD)

    all help is welcome

    T.K

    Hmm well thats interesting, What version of XP are you using? I had a quick look at the GB website and there is no specific SATA Driver listed GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver - GA-EP43-DS3L (rev. 1.0)
    I will assume that you still have your "data" on the SATA drive? Do you have a copy of vista to install on your IDE drive and see wtf is going on? Personally I would bin your IDE drive and go and buy a SATA drive for your OS as well, Come on man there cheap as. But It still doesnt make much sence. I would possible try reinstalling XP off a SP3 disk or SP2?? make sure your BIOS Is set up right? try changing SATA Ports on the MB?

    --thanks for the fast replay--
    im using a sp2 xp
    till now its the IDE that's doing its job well,and SATA don't come cheap here for a self supporting student..
    updated to the latest BIOS
    DLed the intel chipset driver pack from the site,still "dynamic unreadable"
    moved around the ports
    my projects are still trapped in that little black box....

    Hmm well If you cant get your hands on a copy of vista to at least try and see if you have the same problem then maybe try reinstalling XP or google Dynamic Unreadable as I just did and there seems to be plenty of stuff. This looks like something or relevance. System or Boot Disk Listed as Dynamic Unreadable in Disk Management
    Oh and yes Student Budgets are somewhat limmiting. I know I was there once, you just have to give up the weed, booze and women and you can afford all the computer glory in the world. Jokes.
