my 1 year old (still new -never used) DW1620 is causing windows to fail to boot due to early firmware release and conflict with nVidia IDE driver. I would just uninstall the nvidia IDE driver but I am using it to control my RAID 0 array so I am afraid to uninstall it. Will the windows generic IDE driver still be able to control the boot drive Raid array?
If so I could reattach the drive and boot windows and update firmware -right? Rolling back driver selectively might work but all IDE drivers have same # (5.18 nVidia ver. 6.53) so I am not sure I can just roll back ATAPI IDE drivers and not the Raidclass IDE driver at same time- confused? I know I am!
I don’t really know how to update firmware- which application just to update firmware to compatible? I believe it is OEM burner and could get fw version with Nero CD speed but cant boot windows with drive connected to examine it!
This is getting pretty damn complicated
