View Full Version : Installed a CD-R - problem ensues
So I installed a CD-R in my computer. I have an A7V, so I put the CD-R on the ATA100 controller all by itself. Now, when I try to read any disc in the DVD drive, I get an error about the drive either not being ready, or that damn message "Blah blah blah, data incorrect, blah" I uninstalled the CD-R software, and the DVD drive came back just fine.

Bad CD-R software? heheheheh
What software are you using? I recomend you get Nero
Well, it's at the OS level, so I don't think that's what it is...

Dude try to move it to the ATA 66 controller instead and also update the promise drivers the onese included with the board suck.
I had the same problem

I have always understood that CD-R and RW do not perform well attached to UDMA66-100 controllers. I would suggest attaching it to a regular IDE slot on the motherboard, make it a master, and try again. I thing it will work.

I'm running an IWILL KA266 board with an IBM Deskstar hooked up to channel 0, a Yamaha CD-RW and a Creative DVD-ROM hooked up to IDE channel 1. Both are geared for ATA-100 operation. I have no problems.
Look at your CD drive settings. The Yamaha wouldn't run if I set it to be the slave in my chain. I have the CD-RW jumpered to be master and the DVD-ROM jumpered to be the slave. No problems now.
Hope this helps.

Yes it is a master, the LS120 drive is the slave on the primary IDE controller. The only item attached with a 80 pin cable is the IBM 46gig HD. The drive works OK as a CD-Rom, just cannot burn a copy of anything.
