    Default Gigabye EP45-UD3P and "IDE to SATA converter" problem

    How come the gigabyte motherboard EP45-UD3P cannot detect the "IDE to SATA converter" on the IDE hardisk? Try on so many SATA slots but still can't detect.

    everything is connected properly including the power. physically i can see the lights on the "IDE to SATA converter" card but cannot detect.

    I'm not too sure whch one SATA/RAID, SATA/AHCI or SATA/IDE emulation? Which one should i choose?

    I'm using a IDE to SATA converter as well and here is how mine is setup:

    I have the IDE HD's SATA cord plugged into the Gigabyte SATA Ports (The two purple ones) and in the Bios under "Integrated Peripherals" I have the options at the bottom called "Onboard SATA/IDE Device" Enabled and "Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode" set to IDE and not AHCI.

    If that doesn't work for you let me know.

    I use IDE to SATA convertors to connect 2 EIDE HDD's to the Gigabyte (purple) SATA ports (set in bios at IDE), and everything works ok!

    Chose Gigabyte SATA ports because found HDD performance was better than obtained from any of the other SATA ports ---> believe it's related to the Gigabyte ports running off the 100MHz PCI-E bus rather than the mobo's standard SATA port norm of using a 66MHz PCI bus?

    A main reason for currently using to connect via "IDE to SATA" convertors is because I found EIDE HDD performance from the mobo's standard IDE ports to be markedly poorer than obtained from ANY SATA port when running in DOS. And to me DOS performance is very important, not least because it is also where I deal with my "Ghost" backup/restore images !

    I have already done that and it still doesn't work

    Maybe just the actual converter brand/model you are using is not compatible?

    Are you sure it works, I mean have you tested on another board that it does work on? I ask because some of those are VERY Cheaply made it and may just be faulty.

    Was it cheap, if so give me a link and I might buy one to test on my end.
