I just got a BenQ DV-1650S player and DW-1640 writer.
When I put them into my machine (Soltek SL-K8TPro-939), the BIOS wouldn't recognize the reader. Also, it struggled to boot Linux and gave me all sorts of interrupt errors on the reader.
Currently, the 1640 is the master and the 1650S is the slave... both on the same IDE controller. Am I going to have to use cable select? It seems to me they ought to work on the same IDE controller.
Does anyone else have these two products working together?
