What the hell is JMicron JMB361?
Why would I ever need that? Is it any better than just using the normal IDE controller?
I only have one IDE device (my DVD writer) so it is worth using the JMicron stuff?
intel boards don't have normal IDE controllers these days, thats why you have the jmicron. Otherwise you can't use your CD/DVD drives
I disabled mine in the BIOS though and I'm still using my DVD drive no problem!
You disabled the RAID part. The standard IDE part can't be disabled. Otherwise you wouldnt be bale to use your CD/DVD drives
So it's only for RAID, nothing else?
