I've got a serious problem with DVR 109 firmware 1.17 connected as MASTER (jumper on position 1) on an 80 wire IDE CABLE together with ASUS DVD E616P2 (firmware 1.07) configured as SLAVE on a 915 Intel based motherboard ASUS P5GD1 PRO (with bios 1005, latest official available). Asus DVD reader and Pioneer DVD Writer are both UDMA 100
Motherboard has just one IDE connector; hdd is connected to SATA.
On the first boot (cold boot), bios detect Pioneer DVR and Asus DVD...just a few reboot or waiting a few minutes and Pioneer is detected no more..disappear from bios autodetect...while Asus is still there as slave working great. I noticed that sometimes Windows slow down drammatically on drive ACCESS (no task is taking 100% cpu)...just after this rebootin machine makes Pioneer disappear from bios detection.
I left Pioneer alone as the only master without any slave device (no more asus)....but sometimes it disappear again.
Is my DVR 109 a faulty drive or maybe an hard bug or conflict due to the bios?
Any ideas are well accepted.
Sorry for my poor english.
Bye from Italy
