It sems no one can help me with this problem i'm giving more details if that helps. my liteon 32123s is set on secondary master, it was a secondary slave before,the master was my creative 48x and then i had this problem so i took out my creative and put in the liteon as my master and it still doesn't work. I've updated to the latest nero software if that helps. My IDE atapi controller for my secondary channel is set to Ultra dma mode 2 i set it to this because before my problem was this was suddenly set to PIOS mode.
-win Xp Prof. like i said tried it on win98 and it works
-i also have a via chipset mainboard
guess thats it don't know what else to put that is needed
