I'd like to know if you ever get this to work. Almost all the old raid cards I've used specifically instruct you not to connect CDROM type drives to them.
The problem I am having is that none of my 3 CD ROM drives are displaying or even being recognized. One is connected through the motherboard controller, and two are connected through a raid card. I have two souces of power going to these drives also (one split). When I boot up my bios recognizes at least two of my CD ROM drives (the ones connected through the raid controller). I have ran up and down this problem, I have heard a few different ideas as to what is causeing this such as the power supply SP2, or another program. I lastly want to replace the power supply, and it doesnt seem logical since all drives open when I push the buttons. I would appreciate it if anyone could help.
