thanks for the reply, i dont get any error messages, i have just updated to the latest firmware and it now reaches 36% and stops.
if i want to update the ide drivers how would i fo that?
p.s at first when i had the faulty one i thought that it didnt work becuase the ide cable was not "strong enough" so i got an ide cable with more channals like the ones you get with hdds, but that didnt help.
so i will try to update the ide drivers and if that deosnt work i will try it in another pc, any more ideas? oh yeah, how would i go about updating the ide drivers?
