My burner has been running faultlessly for 1year. However with win98se shutdown but power still supplied to the power supply I unplugged the power lead to the burner, after replugging power lead to burner and restarting windows the geen light on the burner stayed constant green rather than flashing several times as usual. This leads to nonrecognition of the burner in windows.
I had this problem once before after the power was interuppted (with windows shutdown) but can’t remember how I fixed it. I have tried starting windows with the IDE cable diconnected…the light stays green… tried starting with the power off and IDE connected… still stays green…disconected both IDE and power, restarted, shutdown then connect power and IDE… still stays green.
I have gigabyte ga6bxc board and 700 celeron CPU. Any ideas on rectifying the problem would be greatly appreciated. This has happened before when I moved the computer to another house eg interuption of power.
Recent successful backups are MOHAA, Ghost Recon, and Commanche 4…perfect backups
Love the forum, thanks OC
