The dvd drive is ide and is running on the same cable so it can't be either of them.
And yeah i know its old, but 2.66ghz dual-cores not bad (outside of gaming).
Just one of those things i can't bring myself to throw away
(even more so when there's such a stupid thing in the way of it working lmao)
its a realy strange problem, live cd linux can access the drive perfectly fine
