Dell 8250 - dvdrom, dvd writer, 2 harddrives, zip drive
Recently bought a dvd writer to replace the cd writer that came with the Dell so plugging it in was no hassle(IDE2). Then I added another harddrive for my video editing projects so the setup before(IDE1)which is old harddrive/zip drive is now old harddrive/new harddrive. All jumpers are set to cableselect. Now, I bought an IDE controller to connect the zip drive which was floating right now.
XP is detecting the controller plus the zip drive and under properties it says"the device is working properly, no conflicts". Setup is from controller, cable is plugged in at IDE1 and end of cable to zip drive. power is ok, didn't touch the jumper. Now, after XP detects it and goes to regular booting up, it then freezes. When I reboot it will go to a menu like safe mode....last known config, etc. and freezes again. Its only when I disconnect the cable between controller & zip drive, XP will work. Need some assistance. Thanks.
