KProbe stopped working, CD Doctor still works - solved

Postby Halc on Fri Jun 06, 2003 3:04 pm

An oddest thing happend. On my LTR-48246S that reads and burns ok in other programs, Kprobe 1.12 stopped working.

I double checked my KProbe installation, my ASPI layer and my drive cables.

Everything is ok. Everything else works, but Kprobe hangs my system completely when it tries to spin up the drive (I'll look up the last command that it is displayed on the screen when I can crash the next time :)

Anybody have any tips? What am I doing wrong.

I don't think I've changed anything on my machine. Yesterday it worked. Today it doesn't. No bios, driver or other updates.

cheers,
Halc

My Kprobe hangs after the starting up drive and while displaying (when trying to use Write Strategy test with default settings):

VUCmd: Pause on/Off (0)

Weird.

My IDE drivers, Kprobe and ASPI are all fine.

Any suggestions?

Tried removing and re-installing? Tried version 1.10?

Yes, I tried removing and re-installing both ASPI and KProbe. Didn't try going back to 1.10 as 1.12 worked beautifully for me.

I'm still looking. Maybe I'll risk installing the new nForce drivers which I've been puttting off, because apparently they don't work properly and because my old ones (certified for my mb) have been flawless to this date.

Well, I was going to buy the 52327S drive anyway, so I'll get to see if this is a hardware fault or not :)

Ok, I fixed it.

My motherboard is Asus A7N8X (v.1.04) I've been using the Asus 1.16 drivers happily for some months now.

I had not changed my IDE drivers and even looking at the Device manager, I was running the proper IDE driver.

However, for the sake of experimentation I did a roll-back to the Standard PCI IDE controller and rebooted.

Now KProbe doesn't crash anymore.

I don't know what went wrong and where, but it's fixed now.
