hi community
please help here...

* problem *
i face trouble with IDE drive detection, it suddenly disappear!

* specification *
i am using GIGABYTE P965-DS3 BIOS 14d(latest as for now)
jmicron driver R1.17.48.15.zip at url ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/jmb36x/XP_Vista_Win7/

* how does this trouble occur *
before this trouble happen, it was good running for 1.5years.
until i buy new eSATA casing url http://www.acryan.com/index.php?option=com_acryan_produ...
my mobo just can't detect this casing if i plug it eSATA, no problem with usb.
well, i do some google search and i learn to activate my OnBoard SATA port(purple color) to AHCI mode.
later, it could detect but is not hotswap, it only detect upon bootup and non removable.
after googling more, i learn that i should update my jmicron's driver to the latest.
until here, my eSATA casing works like charm, detect anytime and remove hardware safely anytime.
ok, the trouble is, my mobo din see all my IDE disk... omg!! help!!
