Gigabyte GA-8I945P Pro, ITE 8212F latest driver and strang..

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.gigabyte (More info?)

Hello,
I'm using a Gigabyte GA-8I945P Pro motherboard.
It has latest Bios (F5)

I've connected 4 IDE hard disk on the ITE8212F controller of the motherboard
:
Primary IDE master: first IBM 60 GB hard disk
Primary IDE slave: Western Digital 120 GB
Secondary IDE master: second IBM 60 GB hard disk
Secondary IDE slave : Seagate 80 GB.

The two IBM 60 GB hard disk are in mirror mode (RAID 1), the two other (80
GB and 120 GB) are just two independant disk.

The os is Windows XP SP2, and I installed the latest ITE8212F drivers from:

http://www.iteusa.com/software_download/software_download2.asp#IT8212%20ATA133%20Controller


I've strange error event in the event viewer, System log.

Event properties :
Type : Warning
Event ID: 26
Source: iteraid

text : "The driver has detected that device \Device\Scsi\iteraid1 has old or
out-of-date firmware. Reduced performance may result."


This message is duplicated a lot of time in my system log.

The driver file (in system32\drivers) is:
iteraid.sys, size: 25423 bytes
version: 5.0.2195.1620
file version: 1.7.1.91

Le pilote a détecté que le périphérique %1 contient un programme intégré
ancien ou périmé. Des performances réduites peuvent en résulter.


I suppose my drivers from ITE website is more recent than driver build by
Gigabyte, and this driver want a more recent Bios/firmware for the ITE chip
than version included by Gigabyte...

    Do not Use these drivers as they are made for ITE cards Only, and have to work
    with the New ITE Bios that you can't use.


    Hassle Gigabyte, like I did and they updated the MoBo bios for me, but was
    never realest to the Public.


    Use the Driver that Gigabyte provides.

    how did you contact Gigabyte to have the update for you ?
    What is your motherboard ? GA-8I945P Pro also ?

    What is the method to update ? This is just a "main" motherboard Bios which
    contain the ITE Bios ? Or a specific procedure to update just ITE Bios
    If yes, we can expect Gigabyte will include in their next bios update

    I've tried both :
    - drivers from ITE Website : iteraid.sys 25423 bytes, 17 march 2005,
    1.7.1.91
    - drivers from Gigabyte Website : iteraid.sys 24 827 bytes, 25 february
    2004, 1.6.1.8

    They give exactly the same error message. And it's written a lot of time in
    the system event log !!


    Event properties :
    Type : Warning
    Event ID: 26
    Source: iteraid

    text : "The driver has detected that device \Device\Scsi\iteraid1 has old or
    out-of-date firmware. Reduced performance may result."

    I'm very surprised, and want at least understant what is "out of date"

    On there web site, I had to reply many times and in the end they offered me a
    new MoBo Bios, I also used the Comments from the FAQ on the ITE web site
    about Bios Updates, ie get onto your MoBo maker.


    Mind you I did have problem with the Normal ITE bios that they used, with 2
    Hard Drives, but worked with 4 Hard Drives, the new bios fixed that plus let
    me boot from any of the 4 HD's and more devises, like USB Stick and Zip drive.

    Use that to Hassle Gigabyte, yes I had to hassle them some 4 times or more,
    even when they stated No, but in the end they confirmed my Bug and offered
    me a new Beta Bios.

    Current Gigabyte Bios is F10 my new one is F11a, on bootup my ITE bios shows
    as V1.7 but their has been some more updates since I had the Bios.

    I have noticed the the ITE controler is not that fast, a Promise one is a lot
    faster on other MoBo's I have used..


    That is using it as a IDE controler.
