I have assembled a SOYO Dragon 2 v2 with 1 gig mem, SATA Western Digital HD, 2 IDE DVD/CD roms,. device manager shows 2 mass storage controllers under "Other Devices". the 2 Disk roms, and the SATA HD are listed correctly in device manager. My SOYO board has 4 IDE connectors and 4 SATA connectors, should I just delete the other devices and reboot the system or disable the other controllers in BIOS?

Thanks for any assistance

Have you got the latest drivers for your motherboard? It sounds like Windows hasn't found drivers for the controllers.

Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband

Yeah, I'm willing to bet you just need to install chipset drivers. The CD that came with your mobo should have a suitable copy of the chipset drivers on them, but if you want the very latest versions, you should download them.

I can't remember if your mobo uses the 865 or 875 chipset, but you can download drivers for the 865 here: http://support.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/cs-009241.htm. If the board uses the 875, you can dig around on the Intel site, shouldn't be too hard to find.
