Hey. I've been having troubles getting a Toshiba ATAPI CD-ROM to mount
on a Soyo 5ema+ motherboard. I have flashed the board BIOS with the
latest update from Soyo, and have tried two different CD-ROM drives
(both Toshibas). The Toshiba is a very standard CD-ROM, OEM on many,
many systems (including Gateway), so I'd be VERY suprised if it couldn't
work with a Soyo board.
The CD-ROM is recognized by the BIOS on startup, but it won't mount
either in Windows or Linux. (It doesn't appear in the Windows drive
tree, and I can't issue a successful "mount" command in Linux.)
Here's what I've tried so far:
-- HDD and CD-ROM on same chain (both jumpered auto-select)
-- HDD (jumpered as Master) and CD-ROM (jumpered as Slave) on Primary
-- HDD on Primary chain and CD-ROM on Secondary chain (both jumpered
-- HDD jumpered as Master on Primary chain and CD-ROM jumpered as
Master on Secondary chain.
Still nothing. Any ideas? Has anybody come across this problem before?
