I have a Via Chipset MVP3 Mobo
The HD is primary master and is separated into 3 partitions
CDrom is primary slave
I recently installed win98 SE
After going through the hurdle of installing bus mastering drivers due to slow hd access, the cdrom stopped working
C, D, and E would be the hard drive partitions so I don't understand why the cdrom doesn't choose F as the driver letter
In explorer the cd icon shows up as driver letter G and a "phantom" F driver appears only to disappear a few seconds later
The name of G drive would turn in SYS now matter what cd was in previously and there would be no access to the cdrom
Did anyone encounter this problem, I know it has to do with via drivers for the chipset, but I need to have them or hd access would slow to a crawl
I have this problem if I install the Highpoint IDE drivers for my Gigabyte GA6-BX2000. My Toshiba DVD drive will dissapear until I goto Device Manager and click REFRESH. I don't bother now using them. Try reverting back to the default windows drivers or check for a later version of the drivers.
why are our jobs so interesting??????
