Ide 1008 Dvdrw Does Not Record/play

Hi Guys, wondered if you could help.

I have a DVD-RW that does not recognise the dics, either blank or empty.
checked Device Manager and it states everything is working properly. When i click on to Properties the message i get is that there is no drive there and this is a Norton security window that comes up.

Help me, help me please. I can't sleep

Was it working before?

There are some general things that might help (not all of it is relevant for your case, but most of it is)...
http://club.myce.com/showthread.php?t=79667 (skip the stuff in the first post)
http://club.myce.com/showthread.php?t=83984

See if any of that helps. Most of the time, it'll do the trick, but if it doesn't please post back with more information about your setup (an InfoTool report would be helpful; see point #4 here for more information about posting InfoTool reports).

Hi Code 65536, everything was working before. Have downloaded an update from drvupdate.com. DVD's work but when i put in a blank CD's in to copy or it states that the dics if full.

Will try your suggestion and let you know how it goes. Cheers

Hi, you replied to my message yesterday re - 1008. Have looked at your previous threads and tried them no change with my IDE 1008.

The drive recognises DVD's but when i put a blank cd or audio cd nothing is registered. Have updated the drive to a newer version. Still not able to copy dvds or Cd's. have also updated Nero as i have service pack 2.

Help please

Hi sandii, I received you PM,
Be aware that your drive uses two laser lens, one for DVDs, the other for CDs. One can die and the other still working.
All I can suggest you is to get a pressured bottle of dry air and blow inside you drive. It can be just some dust on the lens... You can easily find it in most retail stores.
BTW which firmware did you use, the latest is that one: http://www.btc.com.tw/drivers/zip/dv...8_0060_MCU.EXE
