UJ-845B issue

First of all, like to say that this is a great resource, have been lurking for a while, but didn’t really have a need to post and ask a question untill now…

I have just bought a panasonic uj 845B drive to use with my notebook (toshiba satellite 5200-902). the problem is that it does not boot with the drive inserted, not even into knoppix with a live cd… if the drive is inserted with windows running, then nothing happens untill i go and refresh device manager. then the computer it crashes with a blue screen kernel error type thing… if the drive is inserted while windows is starting up, the whole system crashes without a warning… i’m getting desperate here, especially after having read so many comments on how easy the drive was to install for others…
guess i should mention my previous drive was a uj-810 multidrive…

some help would be VERY appreciated :confused:

I would contact Toshiba…

It’s most likely a master/slave issue
