I'm having some trouble with my Masscool XWT-PCIE11 PATA/SATA PCI-E adapter.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6815280009

(Every so often,my Hitachi 1TB hard drive and one of my optical drives decides to disappear,then reappear after a reboot.)

I thought I might try installing updated drivers for the JMicron chipset on the adapter,but it says to use a floppy disk for the install.
(Does the setup.exe included in the download work to install the drivers?)

(Think I answered my own question-it doesn't need a floppy for installing drivers.)
Hopefully this will fix my problems.

usually when you start seeing floppy, you're talking real mode drivers needed to boot media (i.e. F6 to load additional drivers).
