I just had the same problem (Windows XP)... here's what I did to fix it:
- Open Device Manager, IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
- Delete "Secondardy IDE Channel"
- After reboot, I got a the new hardware found dialog for the Opticarc. Just ignore it (hit cancel)
- The next New Hardware Found dialog box was for the Secondary IDE Channel. Just use the existing driver.
- Let it finish, then reboot.
The really weird thing is that I used Acronis to image the drive and restored the image onto another (exactly identical) laptop using Universal Restore and _still_ had this issue. Odd. But at least it's fixed now.
