Update on previous listing, after many happy hours of research and trial /error I have managed to get dashboard to see drive every time reliably !
Replacing windows surrogate drivers with updated Nvidia ones made drive reliably appear with all but one ( performance chart not reading data ) functions working !
But the reported sata link speed is just 1.5 Gb/s.
Do`es anyone know how I might get the rated sata speed of the Extreme II drive I have installed ???
Best Regards in anticipation JeffH.

Pps Hope someone answers this one as its getting lonely out here !!!
