To enable eSATA port, change all jumpers to be down, shorting pin 1 to pin 2 on all 4 jumpers. 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. I own the onboard version of its predecessor Sata II I can only use 1 of the internal SATA ports and im sure the jumpers enable the other ports.

There is a picture of the jumper settings with instructions http: Yeah lots of places sell it but the manual is always on CD and never online. My B works nicely there, but the Pata part had issues with optical drives.
I may give it a try later when work picks up again. This card is available from a number of xontroller. This is what it looks like: 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.
VIA site is offering driver 5. It had pretty much everything I might ever need in large quantities. If it came with a software CD, look for a manual on the CD. I hope this helps. There are 2 jumper blocks J1 and J2 with a pair of jumpers in each block. There is one exception: I finally tried my new NEC and the h62l togther and they seem to both burn and play nice. 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.

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 SIL chipset of some flavor, less picky. IF there is none, look for iva seller or website where a manual is available for download. I did find out the top SATA and the external port are shared and that was what the jumper staa supposed to be for, enabling the port you wanted to use and disabling the extra one.
My CD doesnt contain any manual only uow ive looked at the enitre CD. From Promise product website: Does have a manual that explains how to set the jumpers?
Just tell me to STFU.

Initially from the factory all jumpers are set to connect pin 2 to pin 3 – all up. Seems, this was improved with the new version.
It came with no manual. It is hard to find cards that properly support optical drives, and everyone is getting rid of IDE support: I ended up trading that board back in and got a Nforce 4 with a Dual core that still works fine except hte the extra memory slots being picky.
