i had almost the same problem, i took my Sony CRX175e2 from an older computer to use on mine as a slave. The jumper is configured correctly, and the drive shows up under my computer, and when i try use the drive it gives me the cursor with the cd icon, but when i try and open the drive it says:
e:\ is not accessable. the request could not be performed because of an I/O error.
Is my drive broken, or is it misconfigured?
thnx in advance
