I posted earlier about a problem with my dvd-rw. I read somewhere to delete the secondary IDE channel and let windows detect it. I did that, but when i try to install the driver it says
"Problem installing hardware: hdc
Driver is not intended for this platform"
It now just says unknown device
I'm really annoyed now! :mad: :mad:

If you're trying to install just the second IDE channel, it won't work. You will need to reinstall the entire IDE controller.

What mainboard and driver are you dealing with?
