"Nothing's wrong with my computer." Then what are you worrying about? If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Use the computer and enjoy it.

The person who built your machine did, IMO, exactly the right thing in installing all drivers for your m/b.

It is, as the category suggests, a storage controller. The chip provides an PATA interface and a couple of SATA ones. So it will be connected to the IDE socket and some of the SATA sockets on your m/b.

Do you have a problem with it?

It may have been added to support additional drives. I have a similar card to add support for PATA drives.

My motherboard is an ASUS P7P55D E-LX model. My 2 dvd-rw drives & hard drive are connected to the 3 SATA connectors but none connected to the JMicron JMB361 IDE Connector & the driver's installed. Somehow the technician who build my computer just installed everything that came with the support cd that I had to uninstall some items not needed or deemed useless which brought my attention to this JMicron item. I haven't the slightest idea of what to do regarding this JMicron thing. Nothing's wrong with my computer, yet. So what would one do under this circumstance? Do I uninstall the JMicron driver as well as disable the controller in the BIOS? Or do I just leave it alone? BTW, JMB36X IDE Setup runs on 'startup'. Advice regarding this matter is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
