cdrw won't read/write
New hard drive installed w/ winxp sp2.
I have TDK CDRW241040B w/ updated firmware. It is installed alone (as TDK advises) on the 2nd IDE. it will play an audio cd but will not see a data disk nor, obviously, copy to it. The same issue as when it is a slave on 1st IDE or slave on 2 IDE. A hard drive will run on the 2nd IDE. I have tried several connector cables.
When i set it up w/ my USB enclosure, EVERYTHING works!! i can play audio, read data disks, install prog, copy and erase.
i have done all the troubleshooting in the world (MS site articles, registry changes, troubleshooting sites like these).
i had the same problem before i installed the new HDD.
UPDATE: now it WONT play audio. it did a few days ago
