SCSI CD-RW Problem in WinXP......
Posted on 2003-02-24
I currently have a weird problem that I've never come across before, and wonder if anyone else has.
I have the following setup:
Adaptec PCI AVA-2904CD SCSI Controller
Yamaha CRW2100S Internal CD-RW
Teac R-58S Internal CD-R
The problem is that both CD drives are listed in the device manager, but none are visible in My Computer (or the Disk Management section of the Computer Management)
There are no conflicts in DM at all, and the drives and card both worked fine in Win 98SE and WinME.
If I remove the SCSI card from device manager and do a scan for updated hardware, Windows finds a SCSI Controller. The weird thing is that while the Found New Hardware dialog is open, the drive appears in My Computer and can be accessed as normal. As soon as the dialog is closed - either by installing the adaptec driver or by leaving the device as a SCSI Controller - the drive disappears again.
I have tried the drives separately, with termination set correctly etc.
This is really puzzling me, any ideas would be much appreciated ;o)
