i have two hdd on ide0 and two dvdrom on ide1. ide 1 is dvdrw benq dw1670 on master and dvdrom on slave
the prob is when you put a disc in it spins and just sits there spinning and does not come up on the screen
has this drive ever worked? do you have other computer to test?
tried updating the firmware
was the flash done correctly?
seems you know how to connect the drives. what type of disc are you putting in? maybe auto run is not functioning. go to my computer and access the drive. please try different source disc.
you do not want pio mode. udma is better.
please go to device manager and uninstall your ide controller(s) (not the channels)
i have an older cd-writer, when i connect my dvd burner to the same ide cable, for some reason i can not recognize dvd, only cds. :a i know very strange.
