I have a Acer laptop, 1703 and recently i replaced my pioneer DVD-RW with an QSI SDW 082.
My drive dosent show up on the main bios screen, the “ATAPI device” string is blank, and when windows xp starts they ask me for the driver of the drive “DVD±RW SDW-82”. Im sure that no drivers are needed for any DVD/CD drive, but whats the problem?
When I put back the pioneer everything (BIOS/Windows) works fine, except the drive itself, cand read or write anymore.
Does anyone have any idea?
