IDE CD/DVD detected as SCSI

hi

heres my spec
epox 8rda3+ (the new one with the nforce2 ultra 400chipset) with nvidia UDA
v2.03
HDD 1 (C:) on IDE0 master
liteon (D:) on IDE1 master + latest (6th july 2003) firmware upgrade
panasonic (E:) DVD-rom drive on IDE1 slave

winXP + SP1

the problem:
divice manager says both optical drives are scsi, which are not. i dont even
have scsi cabability on my PC. this is fine for the DVD drive, and liteon
read.
if i use nero (551028v - fairly recent) then erasing a CDRW works fine, but
if i try to burn ANY type of disc (weather it be audio, data, or cd->cd)
then it just ejects the disc and says please insert valid media. i slide
tray back in and retry, nothing. been tried with 5 other CDRW discs and 2
CDR's.

i move to my dad's pc with a rather older copy of nero and running winXP
with a yamaha CDRW drive, and it burns perfectly, a little on the slow side
at 8x, but burnt fine.

so..... whats the problem?

i did have an A7V333 that worked fine, and then upgraded to a 8rda3+ mobo.
wether or not this is todo with the fault, i dont know. i cant prove it.
when i swaped mobo's around i didnt have the need to burn CD's, so i didnt.

It's the IDE drivers. Which version are you using?

the ones that come with the nforce2 UDA setup.

been a while since i last installed, but it was something optional at the
end of the nforce2 drivers that apprently increases speed of the IDE
channels.

i`ll see if i can un-install the nforce2 drivers and reinstall them

thanks for that
