Buslink/Lite-On External DVD/RW problem

Hello,

I have the 851 flashed to 832S. My drive is only recognized on XP Pro if I plug in the power and usb cables -after- I’ve restarted the PC. Also, if I reboot while the drive is plugged in, the reboot process hangs, so the only way to reboot is to turn off the power to the drive first. Any ideas?

bl

Is the drive in a USB enclosure?
