Hi can anyone help with my problem? I’m running Win 7 64bit with i7 3820 cpu and Asus P9x79 motherboard, which has 2 x sata III and a bunch of sata IIs on it. I recently installed a (OCZ vertex 4 512GB) SSD as my system drive (C: drive) on a sata III, and demoted my old Samsung 1.5TB HDD to store pictures and music (E: drive, sata II). The big SSD on system drive works very well.
Next, I bought the sandisk readycache 32GB to link to the HDD to speed that up too. I attached it to the other sata III. However, when i run expresscache it repeatedly fails to detect the readycache. I did some checking:
(1) cables look good
(2) BIOS menus show that the sandisk device is detected but not listed in boot order.
(3) In windows device manager the sandisk is detected and shown as working normally.
(4) Windows explorer does not detect the sandisk device.
(5) Sandisk expresscache does not detect the device.
Can anyone help with this? I called the helpdesk and they suggested I unplug the hdd and see what happens and hopefully it will detect ok and allow me to download the expresscache, and after that to reconnect the hdd and link the readycache to the hdd. I am not able to try this until later, but i wanted to see if anyone on the forum has come across this. Thanks.
