I finally got a DVD burner yesterday. An IO/Magic (BenQ 1629 firmware B7C9). At $40 after rebate I couldn’t resist
The problem is that it causing my system to freeze at the Windows splash screen. Happens most of the time. Sometimes boots OK and everything seems fine after that; looks good in device manager and win explorer though I haven’t tried a burn yet. I had it installed as master on the secondary ATA channel with my Lite-On cd burner as slave. Then I tried cable select for both. Then I tried it without the Lite-On.
I have an Abit NF7-S board running Win XP Pro SP1.
Any ideas? Help please!!
I’m going to try it on a SATA channel with an IDE adaptor now , then I will test it in another box.
