A couple of weeks ago by the end of december I overclocked my mobo by 5%.
It didn't like the new voltages so it knocked out the components for about a hour and came back on after a cmos reset.
At the time I had a IDE to sata converter adapter on my DVD-RW burner LG for about 1 year.
It was working fine until that incident and then later stopped functioning.
I bought this from honk kong like last time: IDE TO SATA 100/133 HDD CD DVD Converter Adapter +Cable - eBay (item 250552313757 end time Jan-21-10 02:42:58 PST)
The adapter comes on and has a green light on the adapter the DVD-RW does have power but it's not being recognized at all by bios or windows 7 pro.
I did some testing and put the ide to sata on my old hdd western digital and hooked up my other hdd with the DVD burner with one single IDE cable....
The backup hdd showed up with sata converter and the ide cable only detected the DVD burner ?
I am totally confused about this because this mobo never did that with the other ide converter or neither did my old dead foxconn mobo do this to me...
Can someone please give me some insight on what might be the problem ?
Also I believe the seller sent me the wrong power adapter, it has only one black and one red wire connected on a 2 prong cable.
seagate 80gb hdd is the master
western digital 80gb backup is slaved
LG DVD-RW is master on only one sata cable
