More about what drive xpert
  1. Those two differently colored SATA ports on your motherboard work with Drive Xpert. It's an easy way to configure RAID 0 or RAID 1 using the hardware of the motherboard. If you are not installing a RAID you don't need to insatall it, or activate it in BIOS.
  2. You got a link where I can read more about this?
  3. Proxi is right
    Drive Xpert by asus is a very easy to do raid set up for 2 drives in raid 0 or 1 but these cannot be system drives just need to set up the sata drives into the 2 different colored sata ports on the mobo i think white and orange is still used.

  8. Thanks!
  9. sorry for the thread revival
    if im not looking to use it for RAID and just normal drives, can I use these still?
    or is it only for RAID and cannot be used as normal SATA ports?
    i.e. I cannot connect a SATA DVD-RW to it?
  10. My understanding is that yes, you can. I have not tried it myself.
  11. What needs to be done to make these (the orange and white ones) available as normal SATA ports? I can't even get the BIOS to see a disk plugged in to the orange SATA plug.
  12. JakeN, start a new thread and let us know what motherboard your talking about.
