Hi there. I just got a new crx225e and am having trouble getting it to work.
I thought it would be a straight swap for an old cd-r, but it causes windows boot lock-up after the windows splash screen. I'm using win98 NOT 98SE.
If I disconnect the IDE cable at this point, windows continues to load as normal.
It's recognised by the BIOS, and if I just boot to command prompt, becomes drive E: after two hard drives. From this point it was able to 3/4 reinstall win98, before it locks at the splash screen again.
I noticed at the Sony site that it required 98SE yet I found on this most informative forum , that the crx225 is the same as a new Liteon which works on win95.
So what's the problem/cure ?
Is the drive knackered, should I try different firmware, or does the problem lie with the OS or pc ?
