Just tried my second Asus E616P2. Both drives would not work in my computer. I saw a message on another site where someone was having the same problem. He said that the drive was locking up his IDE channel. Sounds like what is happening to me. The drive is reconized by Intel Application Acc. and by XP, but I cannot play from a CD or DVD. It locks my system. I have set the unit to Slave which was what the old Asus drive I am replacing was set to. The firmware is 1.03.
Any ideas as to what is happening?
