Current system specs:
AMD Duron 1.6 GHz
Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2
608 MB DDR SDRAM (PC2700)
ATAPI DVD DD 2X16X4X16
My BenQ DW1620 is the Bulk Version with firmware G7K9
My problem is that whenever I put any media in the drive, CD or DVD, blank, burned, original (pressed), the drive will not read it. I put the disc in and the light flashes green showing that it is attempting to be read and I hear a faint knocking sound a few times and then the light and the sound from the drive just stop. The disc cannot be read and nothing is updated in My Computer. Since the light did not stay on then the drive cannot detect a disc.
Apparently this happens most of the time, very few times have I been able to actually get a disc to be read but my success rate has been very low.
I would appreciate any help on this matter.
