Hello, I just bought a 100-pack of Memorex 52X, 700MB, 80min. CD-Rs and Only 5 CDs have worked so far.
The plextor drive reads it, and then the orange blinking light comes on. There is no windows pop up, letting me know there is a new disk in the drive. When I go to My Computer > DVD-RW...
Good deal everybody.
I did try chkdsk but it did not work, I'm glad it did not work :p
I reformated the drive and now the drive is back to normal.
Great help on Hardforum, thank you for the people who chimed in on this subject.
Both tests stated,
SMART Status: PASS

I just called WDC and they said there is nothing I...

You cannot do that ;) (Am I wrong? tell me!)
You can only change drive letters with drives that are not currently active.
In other words, your OS drive (Main hard drive) cannot be changed in the computer management :( :thumbdown:
I have a couple questions, can you please help.
I am not sure how to disconnect the card reader, from the motherboard :(
Its not a IDE ribbon cable, or a SATA cable. I can disconnect it from the card reader itself, or on the mobo. I wonder which would be easier.

That Enermax unit will mess up with the drive letters,
So i would just disconnect the 'IDE' source that goes to the Enermax unit..
Once windows is installed and running, plus in the Enermax IDE source.. and Windows would setup the new hardware?
I do not need those. I am not going to be using RAID. Install anyway? how much space will they take up.. maybe its a good idea to install them now, so when i do use RAID.. they will be there.
What you think?
Yeah, next time i install windows.. i will do that.
Good deal, i don't want to pay $65 for the program. I'm not sure if talk about torrents is allowed, but i would rather download the program.. I will only use it once
One time use for $65 is not worth it IMO.
(one time, as in today.. after...
