When I went to start up my computer, it stopped with the following message: See Master Drive-ATAPI Incompatible...Press F1 to resume. I sure would appreciate it if someone could explain what this means.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I think the most common thing to do would be to replace the IDE cable from a 33 to a Ultra 100/133

I'm more interested in what the message meant, but thanks anyway.

Ya really didn't give allot of info with that post so it's hard to say what that message may mean (other than just obvious guesses). Like, did it still boot up despite the message? Were any new devices installed? Or any changes made recently to the system? You may get more responses if you give a little more detail. I was gonna blow by your post myself but figured I'd let ya know it was vague. System specs often help the techs determine a problem as well. Wish I was one..lol. Have a nice day.

This all started with trying to use my CD-R and it wouldn't open, I then used a pin to open it, if I shut the tray the LED on it would come on and not shut off. I tried re-booting to see if it would re-set, and that was when the ATAPI Incompatible notice happened. I trun off the computer, removed the data cord and turned it back on with the same message appering again. I replaced the cord and turned it on again, and there was no pause in the start up, but the CD still wasn't functioning. After not having any luck I quit for the night, when I started the computer the next morning, the tray slid shut and the LED went off.
