Yes seems like it.
Ok.. Official FW upda. or TBD DOS 7173a FW not found, so I went binflash gui32 with 104_orig.bin (did backup dump).
As others I got "error checksum ok", and Main binflash sais:
Device: G: [Optiarc DVD RW AD-7173A 1-01]
Identified drive: 30 - 3036
Detected drive from Firmware: 30
What I tried:
1. normal win, error.
2. f8 SAFE mode, error. (but they where still on DMA! hmm)
3. Set all chann to pio while in safe mode, error.
4. Then reboot to normal with pio, error.
BUT may be IDE is setup wrong, cause I got 2 Primary and 2 Secondary channels.
IDE 80 from my only IDE port > (green Cabelconn) > DVD(gray) > C:\ (black). I also got 1 HDD on SATAII 0.
(with pio The 2nd primary (pic) says Pio-lÃ¤ge(mode) All the others always says "not applicable" and in dma it says Ultra DMA Mode 5.)
Mobo and manual --> Gigabyte GA-965P-S3
I reinstalled win xp ~1 week ago.
If it's wrong setup how do I correct it?
And is there any TBD DOS FW-flash for 7173a?
