#1

hi
i have one problem with my 760a. it is only running in pio mode. if i switch it to udma insert an dvd/cd my system slow down and i have to reboot. after the reboot my recorder is in pio mode.
the 760a is the only drive on the ide port(intel ich7 port).
i try it with other drive and it works.
i send the 760a back to plaxtor and get an new one and it dit not work.
i try it with different cables but always the same.
in pio mode it works fine but very slow. but this is no solution.

i don’t no what else i can do

Do you have installed MS-IDE drivers or the one Intel proposes for it’s chipset? It’s best to use MS drivers. Most third-party IDE drivers have one problem or another when it comes to optical drives.


#3

i uses the intel driver under winxp and the ms driver under vista, but there is no difference


#4

Uninstalling the IDE channel in Device Manager usually helps. If not, I’d try another ribbon cable yet (80-wire!).


#5

i’d treyed three different cables and deinstall the channel dit not work
