    Ok guys I have been putting together my sytem the last day and everything has been running smoothly except for one thing.

    My Asus p4g8xdeluxe and Seagate Barricuda SATA HDD are not getting along together. In fact, my the HDD is not even being recognized by the BIOS of my motherboard. I checked the cables and all. Even swapped them out.

    When I loaded the diskwizard from ASUS, it found my SATA and even formatted it for me! So what is up here?!

    Thanx for your help, but well, I already did that. I have the latest version, in fact. Oh, this is frustrating.:mad:

    thats real odd, maybe try swapping with some elses SATA if possible. Maybe you should try re-flashing, they screw up sometimes ya know, or even go back to an earlier version of it if possible

    Well, for one thing, living in a desolate area prohibits me from finding anyone with a SATA drive much less a good computer. Two, maybe I should try re-flashing. I will do it tomorrow I guess.

    I dont know much about SATA drives, this is about to my extent, but is it jumpered right, or do SATA's not have jumpers

    Has anyone seen a list of benchmarks comparing S-ATA wiith all our current HD's??? I am itching to get my hands on that data.

    uh yes look up the new Raptor 10,000 RPM harddrive by WD its SATA and it is 20% slower than the SCSI Cheeta15k.3 but its like 15% faster than the IBM dexstar (or however you spell it) and the dexstar is one of the fastest HDDs out there

    I mean, I would like to see a benchmark with two identical drives, say 120 GB 8 meg cache drives.... and the only thing different about the drives is their connection type... IDE vs S-ATA and then have them hooked to identicle computers and run a HD-tach benchmark....

    S-ATA is supposed to be Much more efficient...
