I installed a RAID card & have connected two hard drives to channel 1 & a third to channel 2 but since then I can`t get my cd & dvd rom drives to work (they are still attached to the IDE slot on the motherboard). i have checked the master/slave settings & cables & they are ok.
For example, when I insert a vcd disc in either drive, it will spin up & that`s about it...I will generally get a message telling me that media player is not responding & wait quite a while for the ctrl-alt-del option to become available & usually I end up having to reboot the computer.
If i try to open the disc with another program i will get the message that there is no disc in the drive.
I am wondering if it could be a power issue as I didn`t have this problem untill I added the extra hard drive?
Yes the drives have moved up one letter but that didn`t cause a problem for Media Player or the computer in general when I originally added a 2nd hard drive but it`s not just media player that has trouble opening films or music.
Cyberlink dvd player & power player, DIVX also do not play.
I don`t think it`s a program problem...More a hardware or human error problem.
