HP IDE CD-RW still hangs on Win98 first

By thamboo ·
Here is the problem.I have an IBM Aptiva 500 series 2158, Win 98, CD-DVD drive. I recently installed a HP IDE, CD-RW 8250i and mapped it to D drive. I am able to view both the CD-DVD drive ( G drive ) and the CD-RW both in the win explorer and system Info.

When I click on Direct CD or Easy CD Writer, it just hangs...and locks the system. I have to reboot again..

I have tried the following :
1. Renamed my CD-DVD to D drive and CD-RW
to E Drive.
2. Renamed scsi1hlp.vxd to scsci1hlp.hp since
HP CD-RW conflicts with this file in the
iosubsys. A HP Techie asked me to do this.
3. uncheck DMA in the device properties for
CD-RW

Suggestion are welcome please. Thanks.

Daniel

Daniel , I've seen this type of thing on several computers that have added CD-R's after the initial installation of Windows. (Different brand computers & CR-R's)

The only way I've had success is to reload the whole OS. This is pretty drastic though, good luck.

Resolved this by running a latest IDE update from IBM.
