I read many postings, but didn’t find something that solved my problem yet. Maybe I didn’t read carefully enought, but here’s my problem:
I have an LiteOn 24x burner (sorry - I’ve no access to the model-name at the moment) that worked pretty well in my system (duron 600, asus a7v). No I changed my setup to an athlon 2ghz, epox board and ddr-ram. All drives are correctly detected, except for the LiteOn. I double-checked cables - they are ok. I disconnected the LiteOn and put my dvd-rom on the connector, where the LiteOn should go to - no problem at all. The system won’t boot if my LiteOn is connected. It’s jumpered as master and I tried secondary master on standard ide and primary master on highpoint raid. But no success. The joke is, I didn’t even tried to flash the drive - most other users with a similar problem had a bad flash before this problem occurs.
Suggestions such as - disconnect the printer from your pc didn’t helped much. I only had connected my ps/2 mouse, keyboard and monitor as I first tried to boot my new system. I tried udma-cable and normal ide-cable. Didn’t tried to connect to the secondary slave yet - as I read this just a few minutes ago.
Maybe someone has some clever suggestions and maybe there is a logical reason for this strange behaviour ? I would guess not so, but who knows.
Thanks for any help,
