I set up a pair of drives in raid 1 pre-windows and everything went fine except common disk programs like crystaldiskinfo and HDtune show no disks.

WD's diagnostic program shows C drive as a USB drive.

Do these programs just not support AMD raid [promise based]?

I like to keep a tab on drive temps, SMART and hours.

I do not have this issue with Intel rapid storage technology.

Using raidxpert you can see the health but I want to use other programs too.

Is it just me or does everybody else have this issue?


Thanks for any insight if I am missing something here.


Board in question is Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4

Windows 7 32bit ultimate.


Edit: Crystaldiskinfo I found is simply not supported by the author.

The latest HDtune does see the raid array with full temp and smart functions.

The latest Crystaldiskmark also can see the array and bench it.


ATTO has no trouble seeing it and benching it as well.

The tools you are seeking to use will not function on ANY manufacturers RAID.  They are for single drives in a non RAID environment only.
