CD/RW and PD compact disc not atapi

  Bobnew 11:35 12 Oct 2004

I am using 98SE and the bios gradually didnot recognise my CD/RW . After replacing them in the bios I get the messaage "ATAPI incompatiable".
Help! Please

ATAPI is the correct name for EIDE. You should check the Bios to ensure that IDE channels are Enabled.

Also ensure that the rewriter's jumper on the rear is set to Master (if you have another drive such as a CD/DVD-ROM drive set it to Slave).

You might need a newer version of your Bios but this is unlikely.

cannot find a way in bios to set IDE. Have checked I have latest bios. Amibios 3.31a.
The CD/RW is set at master and other CD slave.
They both worked fine for a while. Have checked for loose connections etc. all seems fine. Thanks for advise.
