Sony DRU 500AX Installation Problem

  Cosmicman 11:26 22 Jul 03

I am trying to install a Sony DRU 500AX DVD writer. My OS is W98 SE on an Athlon 1500 set up.
Unfortunately, when I try to boot up, my system hangs half way through the Windows boot up phase and I have to power off. I can boot to command prompt only and see the drive connected. When I re-nstall my old DVD rom I have no problems.
Any advice would be appreciated.

have you uninstalled the old drive through device manger?

It may be trying to startup your DVD drive with the old drivers.

Yes, I removed the old drive in device manager first before physically removing the drive. I also tried installing both drives as master and secondary to no avail.
