Hi all.

I'm working my dual AMD rig over to convert VHS to DVD. I now have all that I need, and I have gotten it to convert a couple of movies.

But, in a effort to help speed things up some, I bought a PCI SATA raid controller and a 74Gb Raptor.

For some reason I cant get the RAID card to start working. I've installed the card in two differnet PCI slots, but I cant get it to load the drivers unless I manualy pick them. And then it tells me that its unable to start the device. Now I can't even get it to automaticaly find the device when I prompt it to scan for new devices. (after I uninstall the driver)

Any Ideas?

Only Idea I have is that it's conflicting with an onboard controller. What's it tell you in Device Manager? Just that it can't be started?

Strange.

After "stepping back a minute" I pulled the PCI SATA card out and put it back in the first slot I tried.

Then when I started the computer, I went into bios to turn off the SCSI controller on the mobo (I don't have any SCSI drives) and as the computer started, I saw it show the hard drive and card was detected. So I turned off the SCSI controller, and restarted. And its working?

It shows itself as a SCSI raid. The only thing I need to do now is format the drive. What was the command to type into the run line to do that....I've forgoten.

**edit**
Nevermind.
"Diskmgmt"
Sorry. This thing has been driving me nuts. :lol:
