Hi, just wanted to share my experience after reading lots of threads o
this issue and considering buying a new drive

In the end, I *simply turn off IDE emulation for SATA drives on m
motherboard and the problem was solved*
I guess it depends on each manufacturer and BIOS, but I guess this ca
be the problem for some people

In my Nvidia730i based Gigabyte GA-E7-AUM DS2H I can choose to us
Nvidia's SATA chip in IDE, RAID, or AHCI. I was getting the "drive
problem" when using "IDE" mode, but it disapeared when I put it back i
I guess that using the SATA chipset on IDE was interferring with th
IDE channel for the DVD drive (my unit is IDE and rather old)
