Something misterious is happenning to my CDROM! When it's on IDE first channel as a slave together with HDD it works perfectly, but when it's on second IDE channel (no matter master or slave) - I have problems. The problem is that when CD is in the drive, but there are no CD read activity for a while, when system/program needs to read from CD-ROM again, it can't... CD-ROM is trying to read the disk and ooops... system hangs! It can't resume.

What could it be? I had VIA 5VP3 motherboard, now I have changed it into 5ALI61 - same shit! Upgrading BIOS, installing bus mastering drivers, turning DMA off - nothing helps... And no answers form technical support of board manufacturers...
