Weird CD-ROM drive + a resource conflict

By gburk ·
Gotta problem with my CD-ROM that has me baffled. It's an Atiapi IDE drive, speed unknown but an older one probably 6 or 8 X. I'm running W98SE on a MBAT61 mobo with a 433 celly with 64mb of RAM. It had been working fine but all of a sudden this change. The only recent change is to pull a PCI video card (4mb ram) out and put in an AGP type (32mb). Can's see how that could affect it.

No matter what type of CD you put in it, data or audio it says it's an audio CD. But with the audio CD it does not play it or recognize the correct number of tracks on the disc. It shows 8 tracks whether it's an audio or data disc. I think this is probably OS related as I hooked up a different drive (still Atapi IDE but 44X) and while it would at least play the audio CD; headphones only not thru the mobo, it too still would not recognize a data disc as such but as a audio disc. Both drives cause the OS CD player to pop up but they both say data or not disc loaded no matter what type of disc is in the drive. Any thoughts on this?

Also, during POST it give me a Resource conflict, PNP audio error but in Windows device manager there are no conflicts shown. Are they related? What gives here?

All help is greatly appreciated.

1. In device manager, click on my computer, and then properties. click the IRQ button.
Are any devices sharing the IRQ with the AGP card?
If so, you may need to un-install and move the card to a different slot.
There is also a Microsoft Knowledge base article on disableing IRQ steering that may help you eliminate the conflict.

2. Enter BIOS setup, and make sure that the primary display type is set to AGP.
In the plug and play section, set update config ? escd to yes.

3. Install theupdated AGP and IDE drivers for your motherboard.

You can also try removing devices from device manager, and letting windows re-install them. This might take care of the issue to.

Though it didn't turn out to be the exact answer I needed (may have indirectly pointed me in the right direction) at least they were kind enough to respond. Actually, I found that my mobo drivers had been corrupted and upon reinstallation everything returned to normal.
