I'd say both your onboard SATA and the VIA 8287 are incompatible with the MS28. Before spending money on a new VIA SATA card though, you could try searching the forum for MS28 because there are people who use different ways to get their drive recognised e.g. Guide V2.0: Ms28+fussy Via Card.

As for buying a VT6241 card in the UK, here's one I found in an earlier post (but shop around!): http://www.shinyhardware.co.uk/cats/SATA/2723
I got one off eBay for $AUD20 including postage.
If you do get a VT6241 it can be used for all current drives, including the new BenQs.
Hope you get it sorted.
