How do I reinstall IDE?


The only time I have problems as you you describe it's because the movie isn't streaming fast enough to maintain a steady viewing experience - nothing to do with your drive interface.

To reinstall the IDE controller, go into Device Manager (right click my computer and select properties). You should see IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Click on the little + sign and you'll see a list of controllers. Right click each in turn and uninstall. When you've done that, restart the pc and it'll reinstall them automatically.

Hi,

Kindly follow the following steps..

1. Go to Device manager. Click on the + sign beside IDE drives. Right click on the dvd drive and select uninstall. Restart the computer. It should get installed automatically as it is a generic driver.

2. Go to run > type regedit > go to the following key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\
Select the folder that says ( 4D36E965.....
on the right hand side delete the file that says "Upper filters" and "Lower filters"

3. Go to device manager > clock on the + sign beside IDE ATA ATAPI Controllers > right click on Secondary IDE channel and secect uninstall. Do the same with Primary IDE channel. Restart the computer.

4. Reseat the dvd drive.

Hops this helps..

Controller Driver Issue on Armada M700


I am running a Armada M700 with a Hitachi HTS541060G9AT00 60GB Hard Drive - Ultra ATA-100, 5400 RPM, 8MB. The driver that is loaded in mine is on both primary and secondary is atapi.sys. This driver is also installed on the Intel 82371AB/EB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller, along with intelide.sys. The main difference is I am running Window XP Pro SP2. But I believe that they should use the same driver.
Hope this helps.
