Just wondering if anyone else has encountered the same problem as myself? As follows:
On my second (backup) system running Windows XP Pro SP2 all latest updates to all apps/drivers/BIOS/firmware where applicable, apon insertion of physical media (be it CD/DVD) Windows Explorer sometimes does not detect the media, whereas application software can still see the contents, which means I cannot view the disc, only extract its contents etc... Drives are JLMS XJ-HD166S and PLEXTOR PX-712A both newest revisions.
I beleive Norton AntiVirus 2005 has something to do with this, but works fine on primary system.
Have tried letting Windows re-install both drives but to no avail. There must be a driver of some sort that occasionally conflicts?
Specs of the system in question are:
Intel Pentium III ~733MHz
384MB PC-133 SD-RAM (CL-2)
IBM 2178 Mainboard with VIA Apollo Pro 133A System chipset (****)
180GB IBM Deskstar 180GXP 7200rpm 8MB FDB HDD
SoundBlaster Audigy 2 6.1
Leadtek nVIDIA GeForce3 Ti 500 128MB DDR2-RAM
All latest software.
I'm quite puzzled, and have quite a lot of stuff on that system to consider a format at this stage
Any insights are indeed welcome, cheers guys!
