yeah i tried system recovery but it's not working. i htink it's a bad IDE CAble. With the Blue Screen of Death i got a CDr4_XP.sys error b/c windows was trying to install the 811s.
but anyways the 811s Still does not work any idea on hot to fix this?? this is my main concern since i did everything rite, execpt downlodded the latest 811s firmware(hs0p) instead of useing the HS0K Frimware. Now the Drive wont Spin up, I just hear the laser making sounds, it wont even read any media.
sssneth i will try a new ide cable and let you know, but do you have any idea on the burner situation??
