I have used your site to successfully install slim NEC ND 6500 dvd’s in older laptops. I just tried to install a Quanta SDW 082 into an HP N3310 (early Celeron 433 processor) and the system locks up due to the Quanta configuration at boot. Booting up without the drive and adding it later, allows windows XP to install the drivers. The drive drive performs flawlessly at this point. The system still locks up with the drive installed.
I have read on this and other sites that the SDW 082 is configured as a cable select drive and If this is the case is it now a bios problem? If not is there any way for me to change the drive to master?
Thank you in advance and I will be looking forward to your insights.
