ok so i bought this drive the 111d and plugged it in with a ide cable and such and put it on the secondary ide channel as master since there isnt anything else on that ide channel i thought everything should be running smooth well i boot into bios it shows the drive i boot into windows it shows the drive.the cable is connected correctly.but the busy light is always on and will not open.
I pushed the manual open button and put a cd in there just trying to see if that would work and didnt do anything either.
opened device manager dont show any errors i show everything is working fine
when i open device manager and find the drive it states that the country code cannot be set i try and set it to u.s and it states that there isnt any media for country code1 so i cant change that.
also in device manager when i click on the drive and select propertys then volumes it stats disk:cd rom, type:dvd, status: no media (of course) partition style: not applicable, and shows nothing for capacity unallocated space or reservie space.
then if i click on ide(also in device manager) secondary ide channel properties advanced it states that transfer mode is ultra dma mode 2 ? and current transfer mode is unavail? i am really really confused and just want to start using this drive if any one has any sugestions i would really appreciate it thanks
