I got my DVD-RAM about a month ago, never used it, until last week and noticed it wasnt working.
I got 2 DVD, a normal one and the multi DVD-RAM.
When they are both connected, i can see them both.
When i put a CD or a DVD into the DVD-RAM the icon changes to CD-ROM and gives me an error about I/O. (only when they are both plugged).
But when its alone, its working like a charm.
I tryed some stuff...and nothing yet:
1st- I plugged only one of them and they both worked fine alone.
2n- I checked the jumpers, they r fine, DVD-RAM is master other is slave
3- I Updated firmware to A105
4- I installed the DVD-RAM Drivers and the updater
5- I tryed another IDE cable
It only happens when they are both connected, the DVD-RAM just stops working.
My PC is :
1024 (2x512) kingston ram
HL-DT-ST GSA 4163B A105
normal DVD rom
WDC 120gig HDD
