Problem connecting NEC 3520

  1. I've just bought a NEC 3520 and after connecting it XP won't run. The computer freezes after finding new components and before the XP-loading-screen. I've tried master/slave, slave/master, cs/cs (with DVD recorder and DVD rom) and only the DVD-recorder as master, slave and cs but nothing seems to helps. Connecting the NEC to a RAID-card the XP-loading-screen shows but freezes so my question is what the problem seems to be?

    After disconnecting the NEC and connecting my DVD rom and CD-RW XP runs perfectly again. Since the computer freezes just after checking drives I can't get to the BIOS setup while the NEC is connected.

    Defective NEC comes to mind...
    Get another one under warranty.
