PCI Caching Controller not recognized
Posted on 1997-03-08
I just installed a US Logic APT-8400+ PCI IDE Caching Controller. I placed my Mitsumi 4x IDE on the first IDE port on the card (as instructed, and it is the only way the CD ROM works in ANY mode, DOS or WINDOWS), and a 1.6 and 1.08 GB IDE drive on the second port. I had to install their ATAPI driver to get the CD-ROM to be recognized, and all was well, until I fired up Win95. It loaded slowly, and when it stabilized, it said it was running in MS-DOS compatability mode. My CD-ROM was not available, and system performance was very bad. My question is: 1) where do I get the protected mode drivers for this card, or 2) is there an easier solution that someone else has already thought of?
