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.
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.
