I've having trouble getting my IDE 3 and 4 ports working as regular IDE channels on this board. I'm trying to put my TDK burner on IDE 3 as master, but its not being recognized at all. The manual says you don't have to do anything special to use ports 3 and 4 as regular IDE ports, and that you can use CD-ROMs on them. So what's the deal, why isn't it working?
I have the SOYO Dragon+ and the manual say that you cannot connect CD-ROM,Burners,... on these connector because the Fasttrack Lite doesnt support the ATAPI packet. It is written in tha faq in the FastTrack section.
-Always put the blame on you first, then on the hardware !!!
My jumpers are set to master, and my manual specifically says you can use CD-ROM's on 3 and 4 without having to do anything special. In the BIOS, there is no option to enable IDE 3 and 4, just an option to enable RAID. So I have RAID enabled, and its still not working.
you can not use atapi devices on the high point 372 controller on this board.. cd roms and cd rw's are atapi devices

Hi,I have the same problem. Ispent more than two weeks to try it still donot know the problem and I tried to call the tech support, they hold me for more than one hour still could not reach the tech support person.
If some many people have the same problem, I guess soyo cheated us!!!
there is a jumper you have to set to use the ports as regular ide ports. i dont know if that will support cdroms though.
i went to the tomshardware forums and all i got was this lousy signature.

Just downloaded the latest manual from SOYO which dated 2/26/02. In the last troublshooting section, they changed the answer for "Can I use CD-ROM on IDE3 and 4?". It was "yes", Now it is "NO".
So what can I say?
