    It may be a coincidence, but since rebuilding two machines, one with
    an a7v8x and the other an a7n8x-vm, I have not been able to get LS120
    drives to work.

    Has anyone managed this? If so, I can seek solutions elsewhere.

    I have used LS 120 on several ASUS boards -the board supports them better
    than others I may say; its just that the drive itself usually stops the
    high density read function after a while and then is only good as a
    floppy drive.

    That was my feeling. I just thought I would ask. The symptoms occurred
    after the rebuilds.

    Unfortunately, these drives seem now to be decidedly obsolete.

    The thing I liked about them was the electronic eject, which you could do
    anywhere the drive had properties. One click, and the disk was ejected.

    PS...the last time I used one of these internal drives (mine was an OEM
    Matsushita), it worked perfectly on an A7V133. I had no trouble using it as
    an A:\ drive for either floppies or LS-120 disks. I had the BIOS set to
    AUTO, and that was it... HTH...

    I had no problems with my LS-120 drive on my A7N8X dx mobo - until last week
    when I must have damaged it when I changed my PSU. :(
