851s wont work

Hi, I’ve just built a new PC.

MSI KT6 Delta MOBO.
AMD 2.8.

Installed 98 then upgrade to XP and my 851s won’t work.
In 98 it worked fine but in XP it will not autoplay and when I try to run a CD by double clicking it’s icon i get the error:

Only part of a read process memory or write process memory request was completed.

The CD’s in the drive are beimg recognised and in devices the drive is showing as ok.

I swapped it for a spare DVD rom which all worked ok, swapped back to the 851s …no joy!

Am I missing something here???

To start, if you have recnetly installed any packet writing software (InCD) try uninstalling it.
I would try a new/different IDE cable as well.

Check, recheck and update all drivers from MSI page.

Did you install XP “ontop” of Win98…
FAT filesystems have limitations that will harm you in the future…
I should go for “clean” XP install on a NTFS partition to begin with. :slight_smile:

Oh…I should have realised I had a 40 way cable and not 80.
Replaced the cable and all ok!

Thanks
