I have win 95 with pentium and Phoenix Bios.  I have 2 hard drives on primary ide controller.  I have a Ricoh cd writer that wants irq15.  The problem is that the secondary ide controller also wants irq 15.  How can I run an ide cd drive on the secondary controller and still keep my Ricoh happy?

Does the Ricoh CD-R have its own board? If so, is it also IDE? Maybe you could set up the CD and CD-R on the secondary controller.

The Ricoh is a SCSI device and is driven with a SCSI controller card.

Your CD Writer has it's own utility (SCSI) for you to be able to change it to any IRQ which normally should not conflict with your IDE hard drives.
Otherwise get it from the NET.
