Problem: Highpoint RocketRAID 2320 and WD Raptor 150gb

Hello everybody.. hope some1 will help me :)

i have a problem with the following configuration

ASUS P5KC
Intel core 2 duo E6750
HighPoint RocketRAID 2320 controller
3 x WD Raptor 150gb

the problem is that the 3 disks are not recognized by the RAID controller BIOS.

i tried to plug another disk (not a raptor) and it's detected properly, and the raptor disks works couse connecting it directly to a motherboard sata port it works properly.

I dunno how to fix it :(
do you know if there is any issue with this controller combined with the WD raptor 150gb?

any suggestion?

thnx in advice for the help

  1. I think that you might need to update the rocket raid bios the current version is 1.6. The compatibility list only WD 1500ADFD here http://www.highpoint-tech.com/PDF/RR23xx/RR23xx_Compatibility_List.pdf

    but it should still work with WD 1500 AHFD. Get the current bios here
    http://www.highpoint-tech.com/USA/bios_rr2320.htm
  2. wich is the difference between the two models?
  3. i can't edit the message so i reply.. i googled... afaik i have a raptor 150gb.. not a raptorX.. and it appears to be supported.
  4. the raptor x (ahfd) has the clear casing, along with a slightly older firmware version, the standard raptor 150 (adfd) has the newest firmware, but a solid case.
  5. yes.. i know :) infact i have normal raptor...
    and i fixed the problem by updating the controller bios to version 1.6..

    now everything works perfectly.. thnx for the help :)

    and damn.... they are really fast... bad that the storage server is not mine... :(
