PCMCIA SATA drives found very intermittently. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a loaptop with a PCMCIA SATA card in it running Windows XP media center edition.

    I have updated to the latest firmware and drivers.

    Most often the drives I have hooked to the SATA card are not found after booting.  When they are found it is usually right after uninstalling the PCMCIA SATA driver and rebooting.  The drives are a Liteon iHAS324B DVD-RAM drive and a scorpio blue 250GB hard drive.

    Why aren't they always found and is there a way to re-detect them after booting into windows?
