Hello, I picked one these up recently and I’m having problems.
I have not been able to complete a burn of a DVD yet. It almost finishes and then my computer just crashes. The computer literally re-starts. Sometimes it has gone to a blue screen with a “IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL” message.
Every since this happened the first time my computer just crashes and restarts at random times. It was rock solid before I put this drive it. I did a clean install of windows xp pro a week before putting in the drive.
It shows no problems in device status (in properties). In the nForce 3 250 PATA controller section of device manager I have “Let bios select transfer mode” and Ultra DMA 4 was chosen. It looks like the PATA controller is using IRQ 14 and 15 and there are no conflicts. No other devices are using IRQ 14 and 15.
Anyone have any ideas?
