What Does IDE Have That SATA Doesn't

Many of my DVD/CD applications begin to malfunction or quit working all together when I recently changed motherboards. My new motherboard has an IDE controller which I am using with the same DVD/CD drive I have for years with the software. I am also using the same operating system which I clean installed in an effort to resolve the problem. I tried another IDE drive before buying a SATA DVD/CD drive which I tried on both my AMD SB950 SATA 3 controller and Marvell SE9120 SATA 3 controller but again that did not resolve the problem. The IDE controller is controlled by the AMD 950SB. The DVD/CD burner is only listed under boot priority in the BIOS and I am not able to find a sub menu with Block DATA, PIO Mode and DMA Mode like with every other motherboard I have owned. When I checked the device manager in Windows XP all the IDE settings appear to be in order but there is no manufactures driver for the IDE controller like with my other motherboards. All the drivers under ATA Devices are provided by Windows. I would like to figure what is missing that the software needs to work that might be missing with my new motherboard and if there is something missing is it missing by design with SATA technology. Your information would be appreciated.

This is a wierd problem and seems to be software sence the problem happens on both SATA and IDE. go to AMD's website download and install the driver for your chipset or use the disk that should have been provided withtyour MB . If that does not fix the problem got to the MB maker site and download and install the updated BIOS if there is one avilable.

Sounds like a software issue.

Did you install the main CHIPSET driver and SATA drivers from the motherboard support site?

Thanks! edogawa

Yes I do photonboy.

Thanks! navalweaponsofficer

I still working on this and if I can get it resolved I will followup.

To give you a little more detail the software is PowerDVD 3, PowerProducer 2.0 Gold and DVDshrink 3.2 with Nero 6.6.08. These applications have worked with no problem for years with my other 6 motherboards which include 4 Intel P4 motherboards and 2 AMD3+ motherboards. I know with some people this would not be an issue but as far as I am considered their is no excuse for this software to not work with my new AMD3+ motherboard and the people that are making this technology are lucky their not working for me because I wouldn't put up with it.

PowerDVD 3 stops if I try to play a DVD and closes if I select configure from either of the 2 locations in the program. PowerDVD 7 works with the new motherboard.
PowerProducer 2.0 Gold hangs on its splash screen then closes when I try to open it. PowerProducer4 works with the new motherboard.

DVDshrink 3.2 used with Nero 6.6.08 Ultra hangs at 99% burning and will not finish when used with the IDE Burners which are NEC and Samsung. And when I use the ASUS SATA burner DVDshrink 3.2 works fine if I do a full disk backup which usually takes up the full disk but if I do movie only which is usually well under the capacity of the DVD it hangs at 99%. If I burn a disk directly in Nero it works fine. This is all I have found not working so far with the new motherboard which is to much that is otherwise alive and well on the other motherboards using either of IDE burners mentioned above. At this point I lead to believe the manufacture shorted the IDE controller a driver and some information in the BIOS and SATA technology doesn't have the same information associated it as IDE does but that's just speculation since I really don't know.

I want to thank everyone that has responded to my inquiry. I have an update to my original post. The problem with DVDShrink 3.2 seems to be with Nero 6608. When I installed Nero 6601 it seem to resolve the problem and in the past when I upgraded to Nero 6614 it didn't work at all. As far as the 2 CyberLink applications are concerned I have not figured that out yet. I noticed on the disk that came with my motherboard that there are some trail CyberLink applications so I guess its possible CyberLink got with the motherboard manufacturer and they put something on there that would render a significant about of the applications CyberLink has developed over the years useless where you might buy some of their newer ones but I doubt it so I will keep looking.
