Two days ago I put my CD recorder (Plextor 8/4/32A) from my PC to an another PC, but right at the start as I connected it, the error said “boot disk error” as if I placed a non bootable floppy or CD in the drive. The first thing I did afterwards was set the boot device priority so that the floppy was the first one and not the CDdrive as it was before. I restarted the pc and well, all worked just fine. The burner was immediately recognized by winXP… Untill the next day…It again returned the same error! I tried to restart and again it worked (didn’t change anything now) but the next time I had to restart for 2 times before it worked! I installed the recorder as a secondary slave, and another DVD drive as a secondary master (not with CSEL). Besides I have a HD as the primary master, and an Iomega100 ZIP drive as a primary slave. Now I ask if somebody can help with this issue?
P.S.: I am aware that here shouldn’t be posts about burners but even tho I talk about plextor burner it has to do with the MB and connecting drives to IDE channels, not burning issue!
