Kinston DDR2/4GB@800Mhz
250 GB Seagate Baracuda SATA HDD
nVidia Quadro Fx 1400 PCX Card/128MB
Two LG DVD RW+ IDE based DVD writers.
The problem is my two DVD writers are working fine on another computer with its IDE cable,but it is not working with my mobo.Recently I installed vista ultimate (clean installation).
Your kind assistance is highly appreciated.Thanks in advance.

  1. What are the jumper settings on those drives?
  2. Dear friend,
    I set the jumpers as 'master' for the first drive & 'slave' for the second drive
  3. Have you tried each drive individually or only both drives together?
  4. Friend,
    I have tried with a single dvd (setting the jumper to master and then again to cable select mode) drive also. There is no wrong with the jumper settings friend.. I have checked the ide cable and the dvd drives with another computer.All of them work.
    I tried to check with editing the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}), but I don't know how to find the 'upper' and 'lower' filters.It shows only 0000,0001,......... ,0008 and 'property'.
    When the drive is attached my PC hardly boots, an unblinking cursor shows up against a black background.Thats all.
  5. The problem is solved friend ! After editing editing the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}), the problem is resolved. I downloaded the 'Microsoft FixIt50027" from Microsoft.
