I have recently installed a BTC 1004IM. I had it as the secondary master and my DVD-ROM as slave. I kept getting the error “invalid win32 program” everytime I tried to start an exe. file from a disc on the 1004IM. The drive also opened files very slowly. After trying many things I finally removed my DVD-ROM and now the 1004IM works great. Why won’t it work with my DVD-ROM installed? I really would like to have a second drive in my system. Is there a fix for this problem?
Thanks for the reply! I’m running windows me. Everything works great as long as the 1004IM is by itself(no slave).
Tried switching the BTC to slave and the DVD-rom to master. Don’t laugh…
I had nearly an identical problem and it worked for me. Go figure.
I finally figured it out. As long as my bios is set to auto detect everything works fine except for the hard drive activity light being on all the time. I had to switch the BTC to slave and the DVD-rom to master and that problem was solved. For some reason the DVD-rom didn’t like being the slave. Thanks for the help!
