Hello Everyone this is my first forum question as I cannot use my CD Burner.
I get the error message Sec Slave Drive.ATAPI Incompatible Press F1 to Resume at boot up and have to press the F1 key for the boot process to continue. My system is Intel P4 1.7 GHz, Giga G8-8SIML M/board,Samsung
CD Burner 40r/24w/10rw, Samsung DVD Rom, Win XP Home EOM. My DVD is working fine and when you put a CD in the CD Burner the light at the front flashes as the CD spins .In the Device Manager of XP when you R click on the CD's properties the device status box says ,This device cannot start (Code 10) Things have been working fine until now .I use nero 5.05 for burning CD's
I don't know alot about the software ,just how to burn CD's.

If anyone can point me in the right direction much appreciated
I have read about a similar problem on this site but need more advice :eek:

I thought of some more info, when I open My Computer the E:drive is not shown its like I don't have a CD Burner in my computer at all.
the A: drive, C: drive, D: drive are all there like normal.

You may also want to check the way the drive is jumpered - ie. Master/Slave/Cable Select. And in the BIOS change the setting of the Secondary IDE Device's to AUTO for the drives.

Thanks for the info, I checked the IDE cable ,and the jumper settings, set the Bios to Auto (which it was already) I borrowed a CD rom form a friend and installed it and Bingo every thing worked OK. Put my CD Burner in and same problem. I think my CD burner is not working ,I will take it to the PC shop I got it at it is still under warrenty.
thanks for the help ,I have learned more about PC's in this last week than I have in a year.

regards dimsey

PS Do I have to end this thread or will that just happen automatically
