    SATA port not working


    Hi all,

    I hope that this thread doesn't go as long as the other one, but you never know. In my last thread, that dealt with recovering data on a bad windows 10 disk image, towards the end of it I mentioned that Windows Explorer lost recognition to one of my DVD's.

    I figured that it had to be a bad mobo, so I replaced it and guess what, it still doesn't recognize the DVD. On boot up, the bios see both DVD's, but when it finally loads the system and I check Win Explorer and Disk Management, one of the DVD's isn't there.

    Is there a switch or something that disables drives? Just wondering.

    Did you try swapping the position of the DVDs? Any errors in Device Manager?

    I've swapped them to other SATA ports and all DVD's work, except in the one SATA port on the Mobo. If I swap a HDD to that port, then that HDD stops working, but it is still recognized in the BIOS. That doesn't make any sense????

    Actually, it does. Very possible for not all of the conductors in the sockets on the motherboard are working as designed. There's also the conductors on the motherboard itself and the controller for the SATA ports. Since most ATX/SATA power supplies have two or more plugs on each leg that pretty much rules out a problem there if either plug works.

    But, two motherboards, and the same port, irregardless of the cables that work on one port won't work on the one in question, but two different motherboards?

    May be is a Cable defective. Just swap cables among Drives or if have spare ones, try them.

    Some ODDs don't like AHCI mode.

    Well like I said before, I swapped the cables around and they're fine.

    The thing is, that the ports worked fine before I started working with Frank and Bill trying to fix a "System Image Problem". While fixing that Issue, the HDD's, after recovering system, changes disk id's, and it was at the end of that thread that the SATA port quit.
