SATA DVD problem on new build

I just put together my first build using an Intel D946GZISSL MB with an E2160 processor. As I'm on a tight budget, I was hoping that for now I could install a 40 gb Seagate hard drive, with Window 2000 Pro already loaded, on the single PATA connection and a Samsung SH-S203B DVD drive on one of the four SATA connections. The machine booted on the first try, but I can't get the DVD drive to read anything. The Device Manager says that it is functioning properly and has the correct driver. I'm new at this, so any suggestions? Thank you.

  1. Sounds like a defective drive... if in fact 2K will support SATA devices...
  2. Could be. The Intel website claimed that W2K worked with this board, though.
