I, too, just ordered a unit (Syba Ultra ATA 133 IDE - Raid CC-S133R), planning to flash to std. controller, and lo! It's got the ICE 27C010 chip on it. Sucks!
--> What board did you get so that I might find one for cheap that I can flash?
--> How can one identify a flashable board?
DOH! I need to learn to read. More coffee!!!
This board supports, "Hard Drives, ATAPI CDROM, DVD ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, LS-120, MO, Tape and ZIP devices".
It was cheap cheap cheap at http://www.shopampm.com, less than $14 with shipping!
On an existing system, install board first, install windows SiS 0680 Medley RAID driver, shut down, attach HDD, (change bios to boot from SCSI), press F3 to enter config utility at bootup prompt, select a single HDD. Voila!
On this old tank VA503+ system I run for my daughter, I just increased disc thruput by 50% on a Sandra benchmark. You'd never believe this system has a K63+ in it. Overclocked, and lots and lots of cache!
