Installing 2, identical, IDE CDRWs

By lneuman

  1. Windows XP does not want to allow me to use the master and slave of two, identical CDRWs. BIOS shows them installed but device manager reads, "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because there is a duplicate device already running in the system. (Code 42)"

    Any suggestions?
