Make sure that there are no pins on the drive or on the mboard IDE headers that are bent over such that they’re not plugging into the data cable connectors. Your drive is an IDE drive. So we’ve hopefully eliminated alcohol as a possible issue, but we never actually tested the unit – when you say ‘doesn’t work anymore’ – I need that spelling out That normally fixes matters..

There are two rows of 3 pins on the back of the drive next to the pins for the IDE header. I remember installing gdr8162n programme called alcohol Did you try deleting the registry keys as described? That normally fixes matters.

Your drive does not require an 80 wire data cable – a 40 wire one will do – but if it’s on the same data cable as a hard drive that requires an 80 wire data cable, you must use an 80 wire data cable to get the full max burst speed from the hard drive.

The time now is gdr81622b What usually happens is the gdr862b is ripped at either edge and the wires there are either damaged or severed, often right at a connector or under it’s cable clamp there, where it’s hard to see – if a wire is severed but it’s ends are touching, the connection is intermittent, rather than being reliable.

Thank you for the quick reply. But I got it from my system and this virtual drive is gone too. It was made in August The jumper setting on the back of the drive must be set properly.


But after a while he jumps on cpu and starts loading windows from pc. Net is the opinions of its users.

If you have a generic system and have the CD that came with the mboard, all the necessary drivers are on it. There must be a jumper on one of those three pairs of pins.

But I thought I got rid of this. Default bios settings are usually already set so any drive that is properly connected, and has the proper jumper setting if it’s an IDE drive, will be detected If you think bios settings may have been set wrong, load bios defaults, Save bios settings.

It is common to un-intentionally damage IDE data cables, especially while removing them – the 80 wire ones are more likely to be damaged. Originally Posted by Merrin. Would you use Snapchat filters on your dog?
