I found with mine that the bottom internal port and the external one will work by themselves, the top one must be disabled by default as it never works or crashes the machine when all three are used.

Yeah lots of places sell it but the manual is always controlller CD and never online. There is a picture of the jumper settings with instructions http: It is hard to find cards that properly support optical drives, and everyone is getting rid of IDE support: I guess lan parties and gamers rule now, not hardcore enthusiast with massive tower cases and tons of Hard drives and burners to play with.
This is what it looks like: I hope this helps. It came with no manual. The instructions are kind of bizarre – they want you to infibulate the jumper onto the pins but the picture makes it clearer hope this helps.
[SOLVED] via VT PCI SATA Card
It had pretty much everything I might ever need in large quantities. I own the onboard tk of its predecessor Sata II This card is available from a number of sellers. From Promise product website: IF there is none, look for another seller or website where a manual is available for download.
My CD doesnt contain any manual only drivers ive looked at the enitre CD. I found with mine that the bottom internal port and the external one will work by themselves, the top one must be disabled by default as it never works cintroller crashes the machine when all three are used.
To enable eSATA port, change all jumpers to be down, shorting pin 1 to pin 2 on all 4 jumpers. I can only use 1 of the internal SATA ports and im sure the jumpers enable the other ports. I may give it a try later when work picks up again. I ended up trading that board back in and got a Nforce 4 with a Dual core that still works fine except for the extra memory slots being picky.
Seems, this was improved with the new version. The card is very picky anyways so unless you have a bunch of non samsung burners to try and some time probably best to try a better card with a Diaable chipset of some flavor, less picky. VIA site is offering driver 5.
Disable RAID Prompt on Boot in eSata-Sata-RAID-Controller-VT6421A
Initially from the factory all jumpers are set to connect pin 2 to pin 3 – all up. There is one exception: I finally tried my new NEC and the h62l togther and they seem to both burn and play nice.
I did find out the top SATA and the external port are shared and that was what the jumper was supposed to saha for, enabling the port you wanted to use and disabling the extra one.
There are 2 jumper blocks J1 and J2 with a pair of jumpers in each block. Does have a manual that explains how to set the jumpers? If it came with a software CD, look for a manual on the CD. Just tell me to STFU. My B works nicely there, but the Pata crad had issues with optical drives.
