Problems with my 7173A, please help!

I have some problems with my 7173A burner.
I have never had any problems with it until now.

Yesterday i installed Win XP Pro and i get these problems:

  1. CloneCD cant find a burner.

  2. Copied a file from CD to the harddrive and got a message saying something like “I/O error…”.

  3. When i was gonna install Battlefield 2 i got this error:

Error Code: -5006 : 0x8007045d
Error Information:
>SetupDLL\SetupDLL.cpp (1356)
pAPP:Battlefield 2™
PGUID: 04858915-9F49-4B2A-AED4-DC49A7DE6A7B
@Windows XP Service Pack 2 (2600) BT_OTHER 232.64

And also, is this correct? SCSI?
Optiarc DVD RW AD-7173A SCSI CdRom Device

I really hope someone can help me!

Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:

No one? :frowning:

did you just build this computer, what’s the motherboard?

Yes i did, but i used the drive in my previous computer and it was no problems.

The mobo is Gigabyte GA P35 DS3

it’s probably the drivers and the way you loaded them for your new build

also how you connected the nec?

I’ll google your mobo

another jmicron problem,

read the manual for bios and settings for atapi/ide and that chipset

the gigabyte drivers are old and screwed up

Can you give me a link to the drivers please? All i can find is firmwares.

I will check the manual.

this a real can of worms, first you have to get your bios set correctly

there’s a good chance that all we will do is spin our wheels trying to fix this, you may have to reload windows

may 2007 drivers whql(signed by MS)

anyone else with this bios please step in :bow: :bow: :bow:

I don’t want any jmicron myself :disagree: :disagree: :disagree:

i doubt that i need that.
i havent even heard of jmicron.

This is annoying :frowning:

au contraire mon fraire

old drivers from gigabyte :Z

:iagree: :iagree:

Interesting, didnt know that :slight_smile:

Why do you think thats bad? Its a great card.

what’s bad is gigabyte still using those old drivers on a such a new motherboard

here’s the bios settings for the jmicron
make sure your sata hard drives oare connected to the intel controller
it takes a lot of research to properly setup these new motherboards to run right

Onboard SATA/IDE Device (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip)
Enables or disables the IDE and SATA controllers integrated in the GIGABYTE SATA 2 chip.
(Default: Enabled)
Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip)
Enables or disables RAID for the SATA controller integrated in the GIGABYTE SATA 2 chip.
IDE Configures the SATA controller to PATA mode. (Default)
AHCI Configures the SATA controller to AHCI mode. Advanced Host Controller
Interface (AHCI) is an interface specification that allows the storage driver to
enable advanced Serial ATA features such as Native Command Queuing and
hot plug. For more information about AHCI, please visit Intel’s website.
RAID/IDE Enables RAID for the SATA controller. (The IDE controller still operates in PATA

DVDinfoPro shows that my Drive is connected to “SATA or SCSI”.
I think thats the problem.

I have connected it to a normal IDE port.

Damn i hate this!

how is your bios setup now, see the part I quoted from your manual

what is you sata hard drive connected to?

which color of serial connectors on the mobo?

The BIOS is on default, i really doubt its anything there.

My Sata-II discs are connected to the yellow/brown connectors.
There are 4 yellow and 2 purple but the purple are for RAID as i understand it.

Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip)
Enables or disables RAID for the SATA controller integrated in the GIGABYTE SATA 2 chip.IDE Configures the SATA controller to PATA mode. (Default)

is raid enabled, if it is, disable

make sure the gigabyte sata controller is in pata mode

update the drivers for the sata/ide controller part in device manager

Hmm that sound very weird, will the harddrives still run at SATA-II then?

Sorry if its a dumb question :slight_smile:

if the hard drives are connected to the ICH9 then changing the gigabyte(jmicron) won’t affect them, pata setting is default

the advanced settings for that intel chipset are right before the jmicron ones

Cant find anything about PATA in BIOS.

Only thing i can find is if i want to run my harddrives as IDE, ICH9 or RAID.
They are on IDE now (default).

Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode

is it set for IDE, ACHI or Raid/IDE ?
