    Just wanted to check there was nothing else I could do to get it working - the secondary IDE port doesn't seem to be working on my Asrock DualSATA2 s939 mobo. I've currently got an IDE HDD on primary, and two dvd drives on secondary - I've swapped them round so the DVD drives run on primary instead and confirmed it is neither the drives nor the cabling (it didn't detect the HDD when swapped). Is there anything else that I can do to try and get it working? Any quirks of asrock mobos?

    If not, could this be indicative that the board is on its way out or will it probably remain an isolated problem? I only bought the board off someone on the sale forums a month ago, who in turn said it was only 3 weeks old and in excellent condition. Only got round to setting it up now, so if it could mean the board could go soon I may have to check back to him.
