[QUOTE=KTL;2207898]My mistake, I didn’t realize that I should’ve telepathically read your mind about what chipset you had on your motherboard.[/QUOTE]
Why do you think I ASKED WHAT I was missing?! Your first post was totally useless. I already knew I was missing something so I sure didn’t need you to tell me I was and obviously YOU had no idea what it was either.
The above quoted reply was even more useless than the first one. Neither one contributed to helping me find WHAT I WAS MISSING which is what I asked for help with. Heck, now that we know what the problem might be you STILL didn’t offer any help on how to fix the issue.
On the other hand BurningFish gave a suggestion as to WHAT it was that I might be missing and a possible solution and for that I thank him!! I would have never guessed that a chip manufacturer would make an IDE controller that didn’t fully support any and all IDE devices, optical or otherwise. Fortunately BurningFish did and now I have something to work with.
As to you, if you would please never post any more meaningless drivel in any topic I start I would greatly appreciate it. :Z
