So I thought I'd get around to putting my CD-R in this new computer.. It's an ol' school Yamaha CDR102 I think it's called. (2xWrite, 4 x read) and I have a Promise Technology Incorporated scsi card. But after I load up the drivers, the computer stalls on the next boot up, and then puts it on it's ASD (or whatever the hell it's called) list and stops loading it. It suggest I upgrade the drivers, so I found a drive that was made in 2000 for the symbios 8001s (I think thats it?) chip, but when I load that, it keeps finding the card everytime it boots up and asking for a driver. And I tried switching the PCI slot that the card is located in. Any suggestions? Can't figure out why it would stall a card. (Oh yeah, it's a bootable card I guess, and it displays it's stuff and that the Yamaha cdr is attached to it at bootup, so I assume it's not faulty). Exact same OS that I was using when it was working (And I mean exact, I didn't even format the harddrive, just moved it from computer to computer)

Realslow: yeah, I was going to try that.. I could takethe usual Johnny way out and get a new cd-r..
Wrecker: Phone them.. That sounds like a pain.. I phoned bell yesterday for some advice on my internet being slow "Sounds like your Network card isn't installed right" "Physically??" "yeah, install it again. have I been of service?" "Kiss my ass."
usually I'd get that problem, but this time it seems a little odd. It's ID is set to 1. But it WAS working in my last computer and nothing was changed. (I just moved the hard drive to this computer). Everytning else remained the same)
