1633s problem

ok i just got this drive. it is the 1633s. it reads dvds and plays them fine…it will even read cd’s. i put one in and it shows up in “my computer” and i can explore the disc and run stuff. so heres the problem. when i try to install or copy something from the drive, it goes for a second and then quits like it is locked up.(progress bar stops not the entire comp). if i try the same thing in my plain old 52x cdrom it works pefect. whats the problem??


make sure dma is on … and its hooked up properly
e.g. i would have the drive as a master. also a 80 pin cable…
and make sure you have the latest bios updates… and firmware updates
