Benq 1640 not working with my LG dvd-rom(Mb:p4s533-x)



Hi, I have registered because I have a problem with my new benq 1640. I just received it an hour ago and tried to make it work but it just doesn’t work with my LG dvd-rom (model # unknown, will get it on demand). I plugged both of them and only the LG work in secondary slave. When I remove the LG the benq now becomes secondary slave. I tried plugging them in any way possible using the Ide cable and when both are plugged only the LG works… My motherboard is an asus p4s533-x and I will try updating the drivers but I don’t think that would be the problem… Anyway if anyone could help me it would be really appreciated I plugged the Benq for now but I don’t want to be stuck with just a secondary slave Benq drive… I want both of them to work since I need to copy cds/dvds. Thanks

Update : If I get the SiS Mini IDE Driver 2.04a for WIN98SE/ME/2K/XP for my mobo would that help?


Fixed : It was pretty stupid of me but I forgot to check the jumper of my Benq and it was set to slave so was my LG. Sorry for this message.



We have all done it at one time or another-

Anyone that says they haven’t - probably has never swapped out drives-

Glad that it was as simple as that-
