"Abit KT7 incompatible with LiteOn LTR-24102B
Based upon my experience so far I would have to say yes. It doesn't work. It is detected as LTR-24102B in the BIOS as a ATA33 device . It cannot be booted from or discs read from it, much less to write (I actually didn't try to). It works in my work machine so I doubt there is anything physically wrong with the drive. It the KT7 machine I also notice that it blinks excessively whenever a disc is put in. Oh well the plextor 8X goes back in for now. It seems that it is time to upgrade my mobo (Suggestions please, but I'd likke to keep me SDRAM, esp as I just got 256 more)"
I love my KT7, it's never given any real showstopping problems until now. I have an Inwin Q500 case with a 300W power supply. I have my Duron running at 700 (it's a 700 but I normally have it going at 850). It doesn't matter where I put the drive it cannot be booted from. Even as the primary master and the only IDE device connected! I have a Globalwin WBK38 HSF which has a Delta 38cfm fan on it which is power hungry but that and the burner shouldn't be too much.
