Re: Sony copy protection - broken DVD-ROM

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

To complete the story... the drive has been disconnected all day while
I've been doing other things.

Tonight, I again plugged the drive in as Slave, and it was recognised OK.

I swapped the jumper back over to Master, and it was immediately
recognised! Everything is back to normal again.

I can only imagine that some setting on the IDE interface got altered by
the Sony copy protection (corrupted data track) and was retained by a
reservoir capacitor while I was fiddling last night.

Cheers ROS, and thanks for the response.
