Look in Device Manager under "Computer". If it's ACPI, let's change it to "Standard PC":
1. Reinstall Windows 2000 from within Win2K (run Setup on the CD) and (on reboot) press F5 when you see "Setup is inspecting hardware..." and select the Standard PC HAL when prompted. Continue by using the Repair > Fast Repair (no Recovery Console and no Emergency Repair Disk) method. This is the technique I recommend.
2. An easier, but less sure fix is to change the driver for "Computer" in Device Manager to Standard PC and restart. Go to the Driver tab and click Update driver > Next> Display a list...> Show all...> Standard PC. Although this technique works for me, I have heard of systems that will not restart when it's used. A word to the wise...
Afterward, go to Control Panel > Power Options > APM and enable APM.
Please unplug all USB devices during this process.
: : Basics first please:
: : 1. Windows version? >>> Still WIN 2K
: : 2. External drive? Brand? Model? >> Correction TEAC 54X
: : 3. USB 1.1 or 2.0? >> 2.0

: : : I ran into an odd problem. While installing software into a production system, one CD creates a problem when inserted and automounting. A USB error bos comes up and tells us we disconnected the CDROM without shutting down. The CDROM is unoperable and doesn't even show up on DEVICE MANAGER. The CD drive is IDE and will show up on reboot. The first time it happened I recognized it as a USB error message and reseated the USB cables on the motherboard and it ran. It happened again and that didn't fix the problem. We can load other software but this one disc causes the problem. Has anyone seen this? Any ideas where to start to look? Why would a CD drive on the IDE bus cause a USB error? Thanks in advance.
