Hi! (its long but I think it’s a challenge!)
This is the situation. Last New Year I bought the cd writer 9210i (8x4x24). Since I had no SCSI, they gave me a Adaptec SCSI-2 ISA card with it. When I installed the whole stuff (in Win98) there was no problem at all! But…
About 10 times a year I choose to format all my three harddrives to be sure nothing is left behind for MicroSoft
So I installed all the hardware again (and all the latest drivers and updates). Now the weird stuff: my cd-rom drive works fine if I don’t install the burn HP drivers.
The writer although is recognised by the SCSI card and reads like a cd-rom drive, but *.dat files can’t be displayed smoothly (movie), It sucks all of my processor usage (P2 350 128Ram), and the cd-rom can play those *.dat files without problems (and no processor usage at all!). All other movie formats give no problems.
Once I installed the HP drivers 2 use the burn capacities, the problem of reading *.dat files fluently, resists. But another problem rises…the ordinary cdrom drive now completely refuses to play the *.dat files!
Can anyone help me?
If u need some more info…please feel free 2 reply and I’ll will post the info required.
Thnx in advance!
