I have a DVD-R that was been working flawlessly for me since I bought it a month ago. Last night I unhooked it from the IDE cable, to temporarily hook up a friends hard drive.
I hooked it back up last night and it isn't working right. It's getting power just fine, but windows xp sees it as a CD Drive now, where as before the only time it showed it as a CD drive is if a CD was in it. An empty drive would be shown as a DVDRW, drive with a DVD in it DVD etc.
That isn't the problem though. I tried to copy a DVD last night and Nero got hung up on the Scanning SCISI/IDE Bush. I then tried to put a DVD in the drive to see if it would run. No luck.
I don't think the drive is messed up at all. It appears to be a config setting of some type that is screwed. When booting up the drive is recognized as a Pioneer DVDR108 ATA66. That isn't normal is it? That speed probably doesn't matter as much on a DVD drive as it does a HD, but I'm almost positive that is normally much higher (133 maybe).
Does it sound like it's hooked up incorrect? Or I need to reinstall something? Or am I just screwed all together?
Thanks in advance for any help
