2 devices on the same IDE are not working

Hi,

I can’t use 2 devices such as CD-RW(or DVDRW) and DVDROM on the same IDE. I tried different combination - no success.

I have a Win XP pro, I tried to set jumpers to diff combination too(master, slave), reistalled a device a million times, removed them in safe mode, installed again…

AS A RESULT: DVDROM is working but CDRW or DVDRW doesn’t! When I’m trying to read a cd windows says “Canno’t read a CD…” something like that. Sometimes for CDRW windows says “Cannot start a device”

But if I disconnect a DVDROM - CDRW(or DVDRW) works without any problems!

Any suggestions?

Tried a new 80-wire ribbon?


#3

Yes, I have new rounded cable.
It was working before with my old LiteOn CDRW and the same DVDROM…


#4

Tried uninstalling the IDE controller and rebooting?


#5

nope…
I assume XP will automatically install it next time?
Will try, thanks rdgrimes!
