I have a new system and I am having issues. I have an ASUS A8N-SLI mobo, Plextor DVDR PX-716A, and a WDC WD740GD HD. Well they are both SATA/EIDE but the pc locks up when the DVD Rom is connected. I have XP Pro and it stays on the 1st logo until it finally freezes up.
Now I have messed around and tried every which way in the Boot in BIOS but it continues to fail. I have even tried to switch the devices to different SATA ports.
