Re: optical drive not working

Not All models have 4 ports.

SATA Optical Drives do not work when the motherboard has SATA set to ATA.

The 3020 only has ATA mode in bios and does not have AHCI mode.

The work around for systems like that is to have USB 2.0 optical drive.

This is the model that I use for EVERYTHING.
