I have a Medion PC MT6 which has a Ultima DH1-G40 DVD drive, a Sony CRX210E1 CD-RW and a Seagate 120Gb internal hard disc. When I first looked at it the DVD drive would not read any type of disc although Windows XP quite happily recognised the drive. As I attempted to resolve this issue I then lost the CD-RW drive with exactly the same. Then as I attempted to resolve that I lost the hard disc drive!
Now saying lost is not quite true. They will all read in DOS or whatever but unbelievably slowly. It is so slow I have yet to get it to load Windows again but it is trying to. Also sometimes it will not recognise a bootable CD, but other times it will with nothing changed. Tried a few diagnostics tools (when they eventually loaded) and found no fault with the hard disc or anything else.
Have tried different cables, resetting the BIOS to defaults, optimised and failsafe settings but makes no difference. It's driving me mad!
Thanks for any help in advance.
