This morning i thought i'd get my CD-RW (secondary slave) just for the sake of it. It wasn't working (wasn't being detected in BIOS) since i got my new 200gb hdd last year. So i disconnected it and my CD-RW was detected.
After changing the jumpers on the 200gb (primary slave) i managed to get everything working. Everything seem to be working until i inserted various DVD's and CD-R's into my Pioneer 107D and it couldn't read them. I have to eject them otherwise windows stalls. I checked the event log and under system i get: The driver detected a controller error on \Device\CdRom0. I've disconnected every drive except for the one that windows boots on. Any ideas?
By the way i have tried a spare DVD-ROM drive and it appears to be working, same jumper setting (secondary master) and same ide and power cable. Is the drive dead?
