nforce2 + western digital disc

Yeah, what's the fuzz about...I'm intending to buy a new epox 8rga+ mobo and a western digital xl 120 special edition...I've heard rumors about that nforce2 mobos and western discs won't work together..or it might do if you are lucky and get the right firmware version..

So I wonder if you experied any problems with your nforce2 boards(8rga+/8rda+) together with a wester 120gb disc..

quick answers please!/thx

qom ,
I read a lot here at AOAforums , Epox section mostly , and I haven't seen any issues posted about WD and 8RDA+ compatability. I also have a "different brand" NForce2 with IGP and am using a WD 80GB on that one. The only issue I had was that I had to set the jumper to "CABLE SELECT" , that was how it shipped , I first tried MASTER setting and it wasn't recognized correctly. I don't think win98 will have an issue unless it is over 137GB , and I believe there is a workaround for that. Winxp should have no problem if that is what you are running.

WD drives work fine on the 8RDA series of boards, make sure you have the jumpers set correctly, the master hard drive MUST be on the end of an 80 pin cable on IDE 1, you will have no troubles.

i've never had the hard drives at the end of the IDE. i think that's only if you want master using cable select.

i've got the 200GB special edition with no issues on the 8rda+. master, IDE 2, middle connector (funny (looking at your reco), but true ) got on ide 2 cause i wasn't paying attention when i pluged the cables in. no issues, no change!
