My dq67sw 3GB sata port is not detecting any drive in bios .I tried changing the cable and power but that didnt help .It woks fine if connected to 6GB port .
I tried updating BIOS as well . Is there any setting which i need to toggle to get my drive seen in bios ?
Thank you for joining the Desktop Board community.
I would like to gather more information regarding your configuration, please respond to the following;
- Provide your BIOS version
- Provide the name and brand of the drive you are using.
- I noticed that this motherboard has two internal SATA 3 Gb/s ports (black), please try the other port available.
Let me know the results.
Thanks for reply my apology for delay in response.
1 .Attached is the screen capture with bios version
2. I have two HHD drive 500Gb each .Green WD
and one SSD drive of 250gb Samsung 850 EVO
3. None of the 3GB port (black one ) detects any of the drive .I tried all combination (changing power cable ,SATA cable etc)
They work fine as long as connected to 6GB port (blue one) .
Note : i have never used these black port.This is the first time i am trying to use it since i bought SSD drive.

Now based on that the Samsung may have an incompatibility issue with the motherboard, and the WD does not seems to be backwards compatible. Try the connecting one hard drive at a time and see if the BIOS recognizes them.
