    Just picked up an Asus BC-1205PT Blu-Ray drive and it isn't being recognized in BIOS. Ended up having to install Windows using an old IDE drive. Can't figure out why in the world the new drive won't show up.

    Installed newest BIOS version on my Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe, as well as all new drivers.

    Drive: Asus BC-1250PT
    Motherboard: M3A32-MVP Deluxe
    Processor: AMD Phenom 9850
    OS: XP Pro SP2

    Anyone had similar issues/know what the problem could be? =(

    Some new updates...

    There are 3 other SATA Hard Drives also plugged in (That work fine). I've tried switching around where they are plugged in (1, 2, 3, 4) but nothing happens. It just gets stuck up in POST when it gets to the Optical Drive.
    So if it's plugged into SATA 2, it will see the drive in SATA 1, etc. BUT if the drive is plugged into SATA 1 it finds nothing.
    Hope all of that made sense.
    EDIT: SATA is setup as follows;
    OnChiP SATA Channel - Enabled
    OnChip SATA Type - IDE (With options for RAID and AHCI)


    Also forgot to mention there is another Hard Drive plugged in through IDE. Not sure if that would matter. (unplugged IDE HD and still nothing)

    And the Blu-Ray drive is plugged into.
