    I certainly did Roli, thanks very much. ;-)

    I had swapped from IDE to AHCI thinking it would work miracles, well it didn't and things are actually faster back in IDE mode.

    Thanks again.

    Better late than never... thanks a bunch for this article.

    Here's an interesting read, it helped me decide to stay with AHCI.

    I'd like to try your solution to my problem of a disappearing SATA drive (LG Blu-ray BH12LS38).

    The motherboard is ASUS M3N78-VM. Operating system is Windows 7 Home edition.

    My trouble is that when I try to reset the BIOS, there are only three choices given: SATA, AHCI, and Raid. "IDE" is not one of them. The BIOS is currently set to SATA.

    Might I get the Blu-ray drive up and running by installing a SATA card in an unused PCI slot?

    Many thanks!

    SATA is IDE on your board. Not sure about your idea for attaching a Blu-ray drive as those would normally attach to a SATA socket elsewhere on the motherboard.
    What optical drive do you have now? Do what I did and simply swap your existing optical drive for Blu-ray because it is backwards-compatible and will handle 'lesser' disks. You can also get them with Lightscribe if you use that.

    I see that there are such things as SATA plug-in PCI cards for plugging in external optical drives: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...asp?CatId=1455

    Ok. After following your solution, I've got BSOD both on AHCI and IDE modes.
