I just installed this drive this morning. Set is as Master on Seondary. This is my setup.
Windows XP SP1 Pro
Prim-Master- WD 120 gb
Additional IDE card
Prim master-Lite on CD burner
Secon-Master Lite ON DVD rom
tried using different cables, known good cables, it hangs up on Windows XP screen with bar moving across and stops there.
Took it out of Seconday and move to IDE card as prim master then move to secon master. Same thing. Tried good cables as always. It does not want to boot. One thing i noticed is if i do it in safe mode. It hangs on mup.sys.
Board: Abit KX7-333 latest bios
Athlon 2400 xp
1 gig pc2700
Radeon 9700 pro
Now if i dont add the DVD writer, it will boot to xp with no issues.
