It just arrived today from Amazon: Lite-On Super AllWrite 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive - Bulk - IHAS124-04 Version C (Black) Came packed well enough but there wasn't even a packing slip. :\ My mobo is really old (Gigabyte GA-K8N Pro Motherboard, Specs) but does have a 2 port SATA controller. I have had a 500GB drive on SATA0 and I just connected the Lite-On drive to SATA1, gave it power and turned on the system. The drive is seen (I can see it and the 500GB HD in the POST), but then the light in the front of the drive goes on for a split second, I hear a real fast and kind of loud stutter ("dot-dot-dot," all told about 1/4 second max), coming from the drive and the POST hangs at the message: Verifying DMI pool data... If I press the eject button on the drive at any time the tray comes out but immediately goes back in. :\ If I remove the data cable from the drive, the system boots normally and a press of the eject button causes the tray to come out and stay out until you press the button again. Is this drive a for certain RMA? I tend to think so, but I don't have another system to test it on.
