Windows XP SP3
DVD Drive: Pioneer DVR-115D, 80 way IDE cable.
Mobo: ECS P965T-A
I have tried everything. I had this working properly with an older XP installation (I am sure I added some sort of jmicron driver), then I moved to Vista and it did it all for me. No hassle at all. Now I am back with XP and it just will not work.
Things I have tried:
Modifing the registry for the secondary IDE
uninstalling the drive
uninstalling the secondary IDE
Jmicron drivers: jmb36x
All I have now is micron drivers I cannot uninstall at all. They just keep getting reinstalled at every windows startup. I have 3 secondary IDE, one of which my drive appears to be on, in PIO mode permanently and 3 primary IDE, one of which is my Sata 2 HD
So the questions are:
- How do I get rid of this micron driver permanently
- Does my motherboard even use micron?
- Why was it working before and why is there an issue now?
Any help appreciated. I have given up. On another note, I do wish manufacturers would use proper names for their motherboards instead of all this P965T rubbish. It just confuses everyone.
I just found this link and will give it a try…
