Weird problem just came up and I can't track down the root cause.\n\nI've got a 40 Gig and 160 Gig HD on primary IDE and a DVD writer & CD\nwriter on the secondary IDE. On the promise controller I have another 30\nGig HD. Every so often I take the 40 Gig HD out of my satellite so I can\nrecord video on to my computer. This week, when I booted up, the\nsatellite HD made this disturbing ticking sound as if the drive head was\nrepeatedly hitting some kind of internal stopper.\n\nAnyway, I powered down and rebooted and have had trouble accessing the\nsatellite HD since then. The program I normally use to take the\nrecordings off no longer works (hangs and gives me an I/O error). A\ndifferent program (slower) does work.\n\nSo I had a look at my disk drives in device manager and noticed that the\ndrives on the promise controller now say they're SCSI drives! Maybe they\nalways are detected that way in windows (due to the controller) but I've\nnever noticed that before. Is it possible something messed up in windows\nduring that initial boot up? Can I fix the drives so that they show up\nas plain IDE?\n\nThanks!
