Rogue IDE CD-ROM drive
Posted on 1998-02-04
I have an ASUS P55T2P4 mother board, Two Hard drives, and a 24X creative cd-rom. After installing the bus master software (Intel 82371SB PCI Bus Master IDE Controllers) I keep getting a Creative Labs IDE CD-ROM drive entry in my device manager, hard disk controller lines. Before I used the standard IDE controllers but needed the performance of the intel. So why does device manager continue to load the IDE CD-ROM drive when the CD-ROM is slaved to the secondary port all by itself??
How do I tell windows not to try and load this??
I have removed it several times then when i reboot windows prompts me that it has located new hardware and is installing software for it.
p.s. my motherboard recognizes the CD-ROM during boot up with no problems.
