I put together my new PC a couple of weeks ago, and for the most part it's been running smoothly. However, a couple of days ago I started getting messages from the Intel Manager thing (can't remember exact name) about the device in SATA port 1 being disconnected, then a few seconds later it would say it reconnected. The DVD drive is the port 1 device, and after a few minutes of this disconnecting and reconnecting I would get a BSOD. I have since unplugged the drive from the MOBO and had no shutdowns since. Basically I'm trying to determing whether I have a faulty drive, or faulty MOBO. Preferably it's the former.
ASROCK Z77 Extreme 4 MOBO
Super Write Master DVD reader/writer (this drive is quite old, and was taken from a previous PC)
