14th December 2001, 09:44 PM
I have a Pioneer DVD-Rom DVD-104 and a Plextor CD-R PX-W1610A both work ok as long as I dont right click on either one then, I get the hour glass thing and it never goes away,I have to click on ctrl,alt,delete to get rid of the hang,not just once but sometimes 3 or 4 times,then it says My computer not responding,double clicking is ok,take out one of these units and it works fine,both are set to master,one is on ide 1 and the other is on ide 2,HD is on ide 3,nothing is slaveing,both are set to DMA,what could be the problem?TIA

Hi Pistol
Had the same prob last week, some sort of conflict.
I found it was the burner in my case, fitted another make and all was well.
Funny part was the burner that was the cause of all the probs works fine in another system.
Like you say weird:p

If on the same IDE should you not set one to master and the other to slave....I had that prob when both were set as master :rolleyes:

both are on different ide's by themselves
