I have an AMD K6-2-450 running off an A-trend 5220 MB - have been using a 9gb scsi hd on an adaptec 2930u2 card. Added a sony CDRW (as primary master) no probs. Recently added western digital 40gb drive as secondary master and hit some probs...

firstly, jumper settings - had to use the alternate settings (two jumpers on 10 pin) to get bios to recognise - also only getting format at 32gb...

however, biggest nag is that winme (booted off scsi drive) hangs while mouse.vxd loads - try rebooting 4-8 times before successfully booting machine - works fine after this.

have latest bios (v. - also latest ide (VIA) drivers too.

has anyone experienced similar problem? have tried new ide cables too -

any advice would be appreciated
