Does it reappear if you open device manager, right click on "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" and select "Scan for hardware changes"?

(I have similar problem, drive disappears if I insert unreadable CD to my DVD drive.. "Scan for hardware changes" and it works again..)

I cant be sure but i think on both occasions that it happened it was a dvd that registered as unknown in media player

will keep an eye open for it and i'll see if i cant find someway of reproducing the error

the last time it happened i opened a rental dvd using dopus 4

would workbench mount have any affect on windows devices???

also may have guru'd at some point when playing with dopus config settings

sorry i cant be more detailed - if it occurs again what information would you require

p.s. great work on winuae

have you seen pointless suggestions lately
