I just got my new A108XLA, and I seem to be having a couple of problems. I upgraded to FW v1.18 before using it.
First, it won't run the software CD that came with the drive...I get an "autorun.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows" (I'm running Win2k with all the latest updates).
Second, I burned a game ISO to a Verbatim 16x DVD+R at 12x using Alcohol 120% v1.9.2 1705, and when I try to run it in the drive I get a setup.exe - application error msg. "The application failed to initialize properly...blah blah...."
The drive is set as master, and is properly recognized by both the board BIOS (Soyo P4 Dragon Ultra), and in win2k device manager, and everything also appears correct in the SiS IDE UDMA controller properties. I can't see anything that's obviously wrong as far as settings go. Suggestions? Please?
