Hello all, having a few probs hope someone can help.
Installed my 1008IM as secondary slave in my system, booted up, winXP recognised it, installed it for me and it appeared in My Computer as my new F drive (pushing my previous F drive down to H). All seemed well, I checked device manager and there were no exclamation marks, etc - until I tried using the d@mn drive!
All I would get was "please insert disk"....
Anyhoo, I downloaded, installed and ran the Liveupdate program like it said on the sticker (on the front of the drive). LU then downloaded and installed update #0358 (previously 0055). LU asked me to restart which I did.
Sorry for the long back story, but here's the problem - now whenever I boot up, XP loads, I access my account (if I'm quick enough) just in time to see a "found new CD drive"-bubble, then the PC just loses power and reboots - only to repeat the same pattern again.
Have I killed this drive by doing the recommended firmware upgrade? Can I save it? Please help.
If you guys need any further info from me to help, then just let me know.
