Hi All,

I have an '890GX Extreme3' motherboard + 6Core Phenom running Windows 7 Ultimate.

I have my board set to AHCI mode.. As a result... Initially CDBURNERXP doesn't find the burner.



Install ASROCK 890GX Raid Driver (Floppy_Win7-64_Win7_Vista64_Vista_XP64_XP(3.2.1540.35)) and reboot..

NOTE: You CAN install this on an existing box. DONT believe the README..

Got to Device Manager, Select Standard AHCI driver, then right click and UPDATE DRIVER (selecting the directory containing the 64bit or 32bit depending on your machine SYS/INF files).

It should say updating.. Reboot and BINGO..

You have CDBURNERXP working with AHCI.

This has also been tested on LG/SONY/PIONEER drivers and Gigabyte 780 motherboards.

Hope this HELPS...
