yeah i know, if you follow the link in the plextor faqs. im the one who first posted a link to those drivers, thats what fixed everything in the first place..... just decided not to work anymore
called plextor tech support again today, didnt do me much good, all they told me to do was to try turning everything off with msconfig and try it.
so i pulled out a spare hard drive and installed win2k pro on it, left the ms ide drivers on there, installed the aspi and nero..... same damn problems. none of the other drivers made it work either.
even tho the drive says its ok in the self diagnostic test i think im gonna rma it anyway and hope it works out.......
