I am currently building a new PC. Built 100’s before with no problems.
I believe the problem maybe due to the IDE Controller not recognising the DVDRW as a UDMA Device.
When the properties are selected, the normal tabs appear, ie.
there is no way i can get it to read with primary channel and secondary channels.
Gigabyte - GA-K8VM800M m/b
1 Gig Crucial Ram
160Gb ata133 on IDE Slot 1
NEC 4550 on Slot 2
I have tried all different conbination, master, slave, vice versa etc, to no avail.
I am used to using Motherboards with an IDE Channel. PATA Channel, and SATA Channels.
This motherboard has only SATA and IDE(PATA)
2 ide connections(udma33/ata66/ata100/ata133 for the connection of 4 drives.
I have a ata133 on the primary master
dvdrw on the secondary
the drive is recognised in windows, actually the windows has been installed from this drive.
Nero 66015 and other packages recognise the drive no problems.
The writer isnt faulty, tried it in another PC.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
