Hi list,

we've got a Asus DRW-1814BLT here which is not recognized by 6.2. I
can't find it neither in dmesg nor in atacontrol. The Bios detects it
fine and even Linux. This writer is SATA:

The device is connected to:
atapci0: <JMicron JMB363 SATA300 controller> port
mem 0xfbefe000-0xfbefffff irq 40 at device 0.0 on pci2
atapci0: Reserved 0x10 bytes for rid 0x20 type 4 at 0xc400
atapci0: [MPSAFE]
atapci0: Reserved 0x2000 bytes for rid 0x24 type 3 at 0xfbefe000
atapci0: AHCI Version 01.00 controller with 2 ports detected


atapci1: <VIA 8237A SATA150 controller> port
irq 21 at device 15.0 on pci0
atapci1: Reserved 0x10 bytes for rid 0x20 type 4 at 0xb400
atapci1: [MPSAFE]
atapci1: Reserved 0x100 bytes for rid 0x24 type 4 at
atapci1: Reserved 0x8 bytes for rid 0x10 type 4 at 0xbc00
atapci1: Reserved 0x4 bytes for rid 0x14 type 4 at 0xb880

Neither works.

Any ideas what to try?

Thanks in advance
