Hey all, hope you can help, got a real stumper here.
So I upgraded my whole rig from a7n8x-x with xp2500 up to a8n32-sli deluxe x2 4200, sataII hd, 7600gt vid card, 2gb ocz memory.
Carried over from my old rig my 2 disc drives, a generic cd-rw and my benq 1620 dcd writer.
So I booted up, and installed from CD-ROM with the xp disc in my benq, and it loaded up all the setup files just fine, and then when XP got to the interface portion, where you start selecting options and it installs the rest (where theres that time til completion timer as well) it would no longer read from the drive therefore unable to detect the rest of the install files. Changing the disc over to cd-rw it finished installation and i was left goin wtf just happened.
So when XP finished installing and i went to install the mobo and gpu drivers, they wouldnt load the discs from my benq, but they’d read from my cd-rw.
after I got everything back installed, nothng would read from my benq (and stuff isnt autorunning from my cd-rw either) and so I updated its firmware to the latest, and ran the latest nforce4 x16 drivers again just in case, but after all that it still won’t read.
Anyone know whats goin on?
