Detecting IDE Drives then Pauses for like 2 minutes ?

Discussion in 'Abit' started by Digital Sheep, Apr 12, 2005.

  1. Iam sure its somthing simple. Funny thing is i have my SATA drive as
    my first drive to boot ?

    Its an Abit NF7-S 2.0. Never had this problem before. I have no Ide
    drives connected other than 1 cd rom and a DVD burner. And they have
    been on the same connection since i setup the pc ?

    Thanks for any help.

    /ps it starts up fine but just pauses like 2 minutes.

  2. an't remeber where they are connected. Though i know they are on the
    same cable. So one is master and one is slave. Am getting arround to
    placing them on a serperate cable both as master.

    Make sure the CD and DVDR are configured correctly as Master and Slave, or
    both should be Cable Select while using the Black-Gray-Blue cable on IDE1.
    If each of them is connected to a different IDE they should both be
    configured as Master

  4. Has this started happening all of a sudden, without you changing anything?
    If so, the explanation is probably that one of the IDE connector plugs isn't
    pushed fully home into the sockets on the back of the drive(s), or into the
    motherboard. Pull 'em out and shove 'em back in again and see if anything
    different happens.
