Hey, no problem. I’m just glad for the help.
My system is pretty old.
Motherboard: Asus P4P800 SE
This exercise has reminded me that both of my hard drives are not on the primary IDE like I originally thought. This motherboard is one of the first to start offering SATA. Therefore I have an older 80 GB HD on the primary IDE and a newer SATA 320 GB seagate on the SATA and then the two CD drives on the secondary IDE.
Processor: P4 1.6 Ghz
Memory: 640 MB (don’t ask, lol) PC2700 memory
Hard Drives: 1 x Maxtor 80 GB 7200 RPM IDE
1 x Seagate 320 GB 7200 RPM SATA (I think the SATA may actually be routed through the primary IDE channel and hard wired as a slave to whatever is on the primary IDE. I had to do something to trick the BIOS to let me boot from the second hard drive when I installed it on this old motherboard from what I remember)
Video Card: Some old 128 MB ATI card
OS: Windows XP Pro SP2 with all updates
That’s all I can remember off the top of my head. Let me know if you need anything else.
edit: Almost forgot. Device manager looks good.
edit 2: I didn’t even look at the software that came with the drive. I noticed a copy of Nero and thought “meh” and just stuck the drive in and tried burning. Maybe DVD drives require software to work properly and I skipped something I needed. Just something I thought up but I can’t really get to the box right now to check…
