sata drive showing up under 'ide controller' in device manager.

Maybe this is a very dumb question, but my sata drive (the only hdd in
the system) is showing up under 'primary ide channel' of my 'standard
dual channel pci ide controller'.

I was expecting to see a controller for sata, and 2 controllers for
Ide. My mobo is a P5ND2-SLI Deluxe
(http://usa.asus.com/products/mb/socket775/p5nd2-sli-d/overview.htm)

Any idea?

Cheers,

Steve.

Did you run the driver stuff from the ASUS CD that came with
the MB?

Since you're saying (and I assume this is a direct quote from
Device Manager) that you have a "standard dual channel
PCI IDE controller", it appears that you haven't.

Also, there's a lot of options in the BIOS re: SATA / ATA
you need to set.

Tx VGreen,

Yes I did run the sata driver setup, and the bios is configured
properly. An interesting thing is that if I place the ide cdrom on the
primary ide channel as master, the cdrom wont work. This could be
because the sata drive does indeed use the primary ide channel.

I think the sata drive is using the ide controller, and maybe there is
no need for a special 'sata' display icon in the device manager. What
do you see in yours?

cheers,

Steve.

I don't have the same board as you, but here's

No mention of SATA anywhere, yet it's working fine
and benchmarks are where they should be.

You might want to try the support.intel.com site for
updated chipset identification "drivers".

Because SATA host has three working type:
RAID, AHCI and Combined Mode.
If ur SATA working on RAID and AHCI mode. U have to install a driver with
diskette before installing the whole OS(windows xp).
But when using combined mode, u needn't to install any driver, and ur SATA
host will replace two(maybe more) IDE port and will be recognized to IDE
HDD, too.
