Optical Drives Connected to Blue SATA Ports Do Not Work

In some situations, Microsoft Windows* does not recognize CD or DVD drives connected to the blue SATA ports for Intel® Desktop Board D975XBX2 and DX38BT. This can result in failures when trying to write to the drive.

To resolve this, connect the optical drive to a black SATA port.

This applies to:

Intel® Desktop Board D975XBX2
Intel® Desktop Board DX38BT
