CDRW and DVD RW on same IDE

  seancblack 16:44 02 Sep 2003

what a nightmare, has anyone had a problem with putting these 2 on the secondary IDE channel together. I have a gigabyte SQ800 ultra motherboard, with the latest BIOS, but cannot get these 2 peripherals to share the same IDE connection. whichever one of these is set to Slave resets my computer when a disc is inserted. I have flashed both players with the latest firmware, and have had to result in putting the DVDRW as Primary slave with the CDRW as Secondary master. Please advise if anyone has heard of this problem before, and perhaps how I can rectify.

A DVDRW will write CDs. Why have both?
