Still cant resolve this problem-- tecra 8100 with sony crx700e cdrw drive. IDE1 error message upon bootup- reinstall the drive and it will work fine... only NOT on orig bootup.
Common sense tells me if the drive works after reinsertion there has to be a fix.
OS is WINXP professional. Bios is version 2.5 ( latest release)
WHy would windows see the drive AFTER reinsertion but not before?
Drive works fine after reinsertion-- its just annoying
