    dvd-rw: master (lite-on 811s)
    cd-rom-slave
    Delll Poweredge server 400sc

    Everytime I put in a disk on either drive, it freezes and on the dvd-rw it does not find any data. Acording to lite-on, the dvd-rw driver is whatever xp loads. Everything is ok in device manager. What else can I check.

    This problem is happening on a fresh windows xp install. NEW COMPUTER.

    What happens if you leave out the cd-rom SLAVE, and only run the DVD-RW drive by itself on that IDE channel?
