    P5B-Deluxe Wifi + DVD drive = not able to read disks - Windows locks up

    I have this really annoying and recurring problem where, if I insert a DVD or a CD into my DVD drive windows (XP) completely locks up and the disk just doesn't get read. It spins slowly for a couple of seconds and then spins at full speed, as if to say it is going to read the disk but nothing comes of it.

    Before I inserted a new mobo a couple of months back the drive worked fine, but since installing my P5B-Deluxe WiFi mobo I have had issues with the DVD drive reading disks, the drive is a Pioneer DVR-111. When I first had this issue I managed to solve it and the drive was working as it should, but I went to install something just now and the same problem arose and I am not sure how to proceed, I haven't a clue, nor do I remember how it solved the issue before. I have a feeling it could be something in the BIOS but I am not entirely sure what exactly. I have SATA turned off since I was having issues with the JMicron controller when linux was booting, but even so the drive is over IDE and it has been working. I have uninstalled the drive from windows and let it detect, and install it again the next time it booted up, but it didn't solve anything.

    So I was wondering if you guys have any sort of idea as to what could be the problem?

    Given that it happened after you installed a new mobo it could be either a cable or connector problem. Check the cable is snug and there are no bent pins on the drive or mobo, and if that's OK, try changing to a different cable.

    Bios update?
    Latest chipset drivers?

    Have you tried a different optical drive to see if it behaves?

    You do know that the ide channel is on the jmicron controller?

    Yes - And a BIOS update.

    Yes - Same result as my primary drive.

    Yes - I should have said that I disabled "SATA configuration" rather than disabling JMicron support; I got my wires crossed.

    All the cables are installed correctly, also there is nothing wrong with the cable since I have my hard drive on the same cable.

    Re: P5B-Deluxe Wifi + DVD drive = not able to read disks - Windows locks up

    You're using the same IDE cable with the HDD and the DVD drive? I presume the DVD is set to Slave. Try using two cables though. It used to be that mixing opticals and HDDs on the same cable was bad news. Maybe the new mobo is more fussy than the old.

    Yeah I have always kept them on separate channels for that very reason but the motherboard only has one IDE port and the two devices are set appropriately. The thing is, it was working for a time but it has broken again and I don't remember changing anything in or outside the BIOS that would have an impact on how the drive works. I have loaded the default BIOS settings too but it still wouldn't work.

    It would probably be easier to do so. The one I want seems to be out of stock everywhere though .

    The ASUS 1814 Lightscribe has everything, or the Samsung SH-203 is a great burner. Both at Scan and the latter is on "Today Only".

    Thanks, according to the specs the Samsung is quite a bit faster so I went for that drive, despite me much preferring the look of the asus. I also got a Samsung T166 HD501LJ while I was at it. Might as well get the whole lot done in one swift move.
