I'm having a bizarre problem, and was wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
I have a V5, with upgraded BIOS and 2.5 to 3.5 IDE converter from Badflash, running to an external 3.5 in IDE drive and an external cd-rom drive.
When I connect the devices individually, the BIOS recognizes each one, and they appear to function normally. With Smartboot, I can even boot from cd rom.
The problem is that when I connect them both on the same IDE cable, the cd rom always gets bumped off of the chain. The BIOS recognizes the HD and the Sandisk, but not the cd rom. I've tried all of the jumper settings on both the HD and the cd-rom to no avail. Do I have to disable the Sandisk in BIOS? I've even tried a different cd rom that I know is ok, and it's giving me the same problem. Is there any sort of special BIOS setting to bump the Sandisk, and keep the cd rom as slave?
Thanks for any help.
