Yes I did check the FAQ for DMA in XP
. I like to search around a lot before I bother people with a question, but this one really has me stumped. I havent tried changing any of the IDE (physical) setup because it worked perfectly last week on 98SE so I figured I should be able to get it to work in XP. I have 4 IDE devices on: Maxtor 20gig, WD 100gig, Asus DVD-ROM, and the LG GCE-8400B. The hard drives are together (maxtor is the master), and the cd drives are together (Asus is the master). My first step is trying to figure out the incompatibilty with XP. This, logically, should solve my problem. If I cannot figure out this problem then i will try different physical setups. Thanks again for your responses.
I have not called LG Cust. Serv. yet because the Canadian division is closed on weekends. Does anyone think they will be able or willing to help me? Luckily, I have not had to deal with them before, but I guess my luck is about to run out.
