40x liteon dissappearing in xp

#1

Hi I got a 40x liteon not sure the exact model #.
My liteon seems to like vanish from my computer every so often whether it be by time passing by or after a couple of burns the liteon drive stops responding physically and all traces of it are gone from winxp. only remedy seems to be rebooting the comp but that is a real pain in the butt rebooting every so often.
Any help would be very appreciated.

This is most likely a XP problem and not a drive problem.

Things to try:

-Try to connect it different if possible (Secondary master is one of the best locations, secondary slave is the worst).
-Try another new IDE cable.
-Make sure that you have all the updates from windowsupdate.
-Check for new IDE drivers for your motherboard chipset.

-Pray for servicepack 1 for XP to be released soon :bigsmile:

A common cause for this to happen is that the system is booted up with a disc in the drive.

SP1 Beta is out. The actual release of SP1 should be in Aug. The Beta doesn’t solve the issue we’re discussing. Perhaps you’d better start praying for SP2? :stuck_out_tongue:

Or go back to windows 2000 which is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better :bigsmile:
