just completed a new pc build with a Asus A7V8X-X M/board, Athlon XP2400, 512MB PC2100 DDR, Asus 16x DVD Drive & MSI 52x32x52 CDwrtr, running XP Home.
HDD Maxtor is on primary Master & the DVD on Secondary Master with MSI CD Wrtr on Secondary slave.
Problem: if I put in a CD that should auto play like a motherboard Instal CD or a software Cd for DVd or CD Wrtr, AGP card etc the system seems to hang a minute then wont do out. If you try to open the CD it again hangs for a while to think then I get D:\is not a valid win32 application
I have checked out MS site and this relates to money but money isn't installed, I have tried a different DVD drive, new ribbon 40pin, and same. If I unplug the secondary Slave MSI OEM CD Wrtr it seems ok.
But surely it should work with every thing connected. Does anyone think this is this a faulty motherboard ?. I am going to look at Asus site to see if I can find anything on this but will call back in about an hour.
It should work but we are talking computers aren't we.It's just when you said that you remove your msi cd it works fine,makes me wonder whether swopping cables might do the trick.And can you not just swop ide cables to make it reach.
I have just changed the MSI OEM Cd Wrtr 52x32x52 to a different CD wrtr and the drives all work ok. There is no problem writting with the MSI drive but it doesn't like to be slave to the Asus DVD drive. Does anyone know why this could be ?
Is it some sort of a fault in th MSI drive or a compatiblity issue do you think ?.
