    I just installed a SATA drive. DD will not work with it. I get the message "DD Suite does not support Windows Dynamic Drives, EZ-Drives, etc. DD will not be able to access these drives." o_O

    I don't see a caveat on the web site.

    What can I do? Can I make the drive *NOT* dynamic?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    Got the drive formatted finally and started DD to partition it. Stepped thru the wizard, committed, and rebooted. The Acronis screens came up on reboot, and when the boot was finished.......No 2nd partition was there. DD thinks the drive has a SCSI interface, if that's relevant.

    Have you tried doing the procedure by booting to the DD CD instead of starting it in Windows?

    If the Full Mode version has problems with finding and working with your drives, try the Safe Mode version.

    I'm running Vista with sata drives and only way I got it to work was in safe mode.
