Yesterday I bought a DVD-burner NEC ND-1300A. I also have my internal IDE-controller full of two hard drivers, a Plextor CD-burner and a Pioneer DVD-ROM. But I have a Promise Ultra133 TX2 PCI-card with another two hard disks attached to it.
Now I had the DVD-burner in my hand and attached it to the Promise controller.
When booting, the Promise BIOS recognized the DVD burner correctly and showed DMA-33 as transfer mode.
In Windows XP everything looked right, although the burner was shown as an SCSI device, but that's normal when attaching devices to the Promise...
Now guess what I did! I first started the Nero Info Tool and BOOM, my system resetted immediately. This is the case everytime I start the Info Tool.
As next step I just disabled the DVD-burner in the device manager. After that I could start the Info Tool without any problem. However, the DVD burner was not there anymore of course...
Then I went to control panel / system and disabled the auto-reset in case of system malfunction. I wanted to get a bluescreen with the "STOP"-data. I started the Info Tool again, and BOOM. there was my bluescreen instead of a reset. It showed the STOP would be caused by ultra.sys. ultra.sys is the driver of the additional promise controller.
I downloaded different versions of the ultra.sys and installed them. But it didn't help.
It seems the Nero Info Tool requests something special from the ultra.sys which it cannot handle. This is only the case if my DVD-burner is attached and activated in device manager. I certainly don't know, what's being requested. But it seems, this is always the case, if you attach a DVD-burner to an additional EIDE-controller.
I went to google and searched for the error and got your thread here immediately So it most likely doesn't have anything to do with your 5V/12V power. I have MoBo monitor 5 installed and power is steady.
