SCSI CDs detected when they’re IDELocked
I changed my chassis recently, so I took everything out of one and put it in the other. Now Windows XP thinks that my DVD drive, my CDRW drive and my CD-ROM drives are SCSI drives, when they are, in fact, IDE. This isn’t a problem, my CD-ROM and DVDdrives work fine, but because my CDRW is detected as a SCSI CD-ROM, I can’t use the copying facilities. It’s a relatively unknown brand (RWD4224) and it’s a couple of years old so there are no drivers as far as I’m aware (I’ve looked online). How can I get Windows XP to recognise my drives as IDE again?
Another problem is that my replacement DVD drive makes a grating scraping noise when playing certain DVDs and accessing disks. The DVD spins up, then plays, then at some random point it scrapes and playback stops for a while, then it spins up and keeps playing. When I eject, the drive scrapes again and ejects. Some of the DVDs and CDs now have coarse and rough edges as a result. Is this a physical problem which can be remedied or should I replace the drive (again)? Thanks in advance for your help
