Win 2000 & CD Writers & 2nd Hard drives

By iambieny ·
My question has two parts.
First, I was set up as a dual boot with Win ME and 2000 prof. I had a HP cd writer set up in ME. Tired of wasting disk space I formatted and got rid of ME.I am now having problems with 2000 when I try to shut down, restart or put it into standby. I have narrowed it to the burner because when I uninstall the there is no problem. What happens is it shuts windows down but the power stays on and the screen hangs at a blinking cursor.
Part 2.
I have a second hard drive that was recognized in ME but is not seen in 2000.

1)The first part could be a video driver problem that you need to support WIN2K,that could be causing the shutdown problem,also the cd burner needs WIN2K driver also,download updated drivers for the videocard and cd burner.
Open the CMOS control panel and see if the second drive is enabled to auto or LBA,then check Windows Explorer to see if the drive is listed and highlight second drive and click properties.Also check Disk Administrator to see if the drive is listed.

I assume this is a 6020 or other in series.
This problem is the driver for the HP.
I have never encountered a properly working driver for these HP CDRs it NT.
For now the only solution I know, is to set these HP burners up in Win98 or ME machines.
I assume this bug will eventually be corrected.
You could have saved 500 points if you had the time to review the closed questions.
(You are certainly not the first to ask this question,)
Good luck, I hope all goes well.

Dude,
Repartition the Drive that had Me on it & double check the BIOS and the jumpers.
For the Burner does the PC function normally with the cdrw installed and no software (adaptec).....

hope this helps out.

Is the second drive seen by Win2K and not accessible? Or is it not seen at all?
