Ms 6111 mother board

Installed a 52 speed cd writer on primary slave

The old 32 speed cd Rom on Secondary master

In device manager win98se yellow flag came up on the secondary controller

Old cd rom not visible in my computer

By going into the bios and changing PIO to 3 and turinig off 32 bit transfer rate the CD Rom seems to be working OK.

Why does this happen and is this solution OK?

Thankyou Regards Peter

Yes, if you set the BIOS settings for a CD drive to a mode that the drive does not support, the drive may not initialize in Windows.

So, your solution should be fine.

Many older CD drives do not support fast data transfer rates, or DMA access.

To verify that there is not another problem, you should look up the specifications on the 32 speed drive and see what the recommended settings are.

It may be worthwhile to download and install the latest chip-set drivers for your motherboard.
