Gigabyte EP35-DSR3 issues solved

    After much hair tairing and BIOS flashing, RAM switching and swapping, hours
    of BIOS settings playing, I noticed that whenever the system booted with the
    BIOS changed for Auto on any fsb or memory settings whatsover, before the
    system hung the USB external Vantec enclosure drive's light would flicker
    and go out. This is an eSATA unit but I had it hooked with USB 2.0
    connector. I yanked the cable, set the fsb at 390 and the vcore up at 2.5000
    and it has been rock solid in Orthos for over an hour. Very strange. I've
    never heard of run in to this particular quirk before. The external drive
    would be the last thing I would think of.

    Sorry, that's unclear and sloppy: It should read: "..whenever the system
    booted with the BIOS settings for FSB changed from Auto to manual, I
    noticed that the when the system hung and rebooted, the external Vantec USB
    drive light would flicker and go out."

    I've had a time myself trying to find a USB 2.5" IDE enclosure for my
    laptop HD that will agree with my Gigabyte K8NS-939 nforce 3. One of the
    rejects was a Vantec. Gigabyte support gave me some nforce 4 drivers,
    which improved things alot. But still, I have to make sure that trash
    bin has released the drive's partitions or problems happen when I want
    to remove the drive or shut down windows, with my present Cooler Master
    enclosure. Tomorrow I'll be trying an Icy Dock. My 3.5" Bytecc
    enclosure has no such problems; neither do my thumb drives.

    I just got my Icy Dock MB448UA enclosure and have begun to test it, but
    I must run into town. It's interface is 30 Mb/s. Windows has set it to
    write cacheing, no choice available, and trash bin off, no choice to
    activate. I think this bodes well, but will test its abilities to not
    crash things on shutdown later.

    They offer a dock that goes in an external 3.5" bay and lets you slide
    in the portable usb enclosure and use it on IDE! Wow. The back of the
    portable has an indented connector for IDE.

    Nice that the enclosure is aluminum and contacts the top of the drive.

    No shock mounting grommets for the HD, though.

    The Icy Dock solved all my problems. It's as if the chipsets in the
    other ones weren't programmed to clearly identify themselves as
    removable. My advice is to ditch the Vantec and get the Icy Dock MB448UA
    at newegg. Right now there's a $10 rebate so it will only be about $17.

    That was my new XP install and I hadn't changed trash bin from the
    global setting, so the setting for the USB drive was greyed out. Oops.
    It does see it.
