Postby hoxlund on Wed Mar 23, 2005 12:45 pm

Has anyone heard if this drive is good on motherboard compatibility?

for gigabyte there is only 1 nforce chipsetted mobo and it says it works but its the old nforce 3 chipset

It doesn't matter, Hox. If it doesn't work, put it on Ebay. :P

It worked fine on my MSI K8N Neo4 Board Hox. The drive itself sucked ass but it did work with the board.

yeah, sounds like a weird cross between 'kicked ass' and 'sucked di**' #-o

My experience with Plex 716sa

Postby noname_com on Mon Apr 04, 2005 7:29 pm

I have an ABIT Kv8-max3 This Main board has 2 sata controllers via and SI3114. the via controller doesn't handle atapi devices so I used the SI3114. According to the plextor compatibi;ty chart this si3114 on this Main board would work. I tried burning dvd's at 16x (taiyo Yuden 16x's also recommended media by plextor) and I would get a failure on 3 different programs. I tried all 4 ports on the SI3114 controller I turned off all unused resources NAV, spysweep, etc. I updated the bios to latest on Main board and used firmware 1.04a, 1.04b, & 1.05 on the plextor and I was still getting errors I even took a new harddrive off the shelf at my shop an installed WinXP fresh and tried to make sure I didn't have any corrupted aspi drivers. I was still getting burns that were failing half way thru the process. I bought an adaptec 1205sa sata controller and installed it and now I am getting flawless burns. And 2 days later they come out with firmware 1.06. I haven't tried this firmware without the adaptec card yet. This will probably piss me off after I spend money on an add-in card to get something to work then 2 days later they release firmware to patch it.
All I am saying is be careful about which mother board you have and the sata controller it has on it. I have a recommended board and it didn't work for me. My dad got the same plex drive I did and his board is an asus an78x-deluxe with a SI3112 and it worked flawless with his 250 gig Hitachi SATA drive. This drive once its worked is a very fast and smooth drive.

My Grandpappy always told me: "Slim", he says, "geeks that live by the VIA chip, die by the VIA chip."
