FAQ: My optical drive doesn't recognize discs (like they should be)...
Thanks for the link, I will try messing with the master/slave settings, IDE cables, disabling IMAPI, etc. Not too hopeful on those though, because my problems seem to fall under the "Drive seems to work ok, but it doens't see a certain type of media" category. My drive works fine with the most media I've tried -- TDK DVD+R & DVD+RW, CompUSA DVD-R (crappy 1x ones), Memorex DVD-R.
I had a batch of Princo DVD-R's, these seemed to be on the edge. They mostly worked, but sometimes it took a hella long time to recognize the disks. Plus I hated the glossey white top of the Princo's.
Now I have $50 worth of Riteks, and would like to be able to use them
Any further suggestions welcome. BTW, I tried the shift-key trick as well, didn't help.
