So I guess my new question is why do my PCI adapters work when plugged into my 5th PCI slot but does NOT work when plugged into the 6th PCI slot??
Currently I am transferring files from my pc to my external hard drive I am using as backup. My entire system is SATA II which is why I had to plug in a USB 3.0 PCI adapter to make the transfer go by quicker.
Once finished, I can unplug the USB adapter and plug in a SATA III adapter because my one drive, my SSD C drive is a SATA III drive which, while fast, could be much faster plugged into a SATA III port. I was just hoping to have both adapter working at the same time, the USB 3.0 and the SATA III PCI adapter.
