I have been experiencing a problem with the ITE raid portion of my\n8knxp for awhile now but it becomes untenable when I begin to run World\nof warcraft. I have 2 identical 80gb hard drives striped on the array\nas the hardware details will show. When I run World of warcraft the\nraid begins shutting down and restarting the drives simultaneously. As\nsoon as I shut off world of warcraft all is well.\n\nI have the 2 western digitals set to master. One on ide3 and one on ide\n4. Nothing else is on that chain.\n\nMy boot drive is an 80gb hitachi on ide1, dvd-rom as slave on ide1\ncd-rw on ide2, ls-120 as slave on ide2\n\nI have 1 serial ata hard drive on sata0\n\n\nIt has passed a strenuous test with burnin test as well. I have gone\nover a month recently without rebooting. Until I started having this\nissue.\n\nI get these three notices in my event viewer that coincide with the\nraid problem.\n\n1. ERROR The device, \Device\Scsi\iteraid1, did not respond within the\ntimeout period. (likely due to the drives shutting down and restarting)\n\n2. WARNING An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk2\D during a\npaging operation. (likely due to the drives shutting down and\nrestarting)\n\n3. WARNING The driver has detected that device \Device\Scsi\iteraid1\nhas old or out-of-date firmware. Reduced performance may result. (I\nhave the bios the board came with. The ITE sight has many revisions\nnewer for their standalone cards which I know won't work for this\nboard.)\n\nSo I have searched the gigabyte website for the updated firmware and\nflash program suited specifically to this on-board card but I have only\nfound drivers, with which I updated to the most recent ones and the\nproblem still exists.\n\nI have seen one post mentioning that someone did succeed in getting the\n1.7 version of the bios from Gigabyte but so far they have given me no\nreal help. Just telling me to make sure the drives are set as master on\nide3 and ide4 (which they are and always have been)\n\nI suspect the board doesn't handle having both serial and IDE drives\nactive at the same time. I have also tried making the 2 drives seperate\nand turned off the IDE raid function but this did not fix the issue.\n\nThe only thing I have been able to do at this point is unplug those 2\ndrives and not use them, leaving my boot drive and my serial ata drive\nin place.\n\nDoes anyone know where I can get the correct bios update or other\npossibilities this might be?
