What software isues? Please explain. I have tried DVD region free software
I even took my drive to another computer. There also same problems.
After studying on few forums, I upgraded firmware to RPC 2 autoreset. So now there is no region specified.
I put CD/DVD's IN, The explorer shows empty folder for CD/DVD drive. The drive has reading problem,
But it can very well record CD's and DVd's with no problem.
I have tried lens cleaning. But it is still able to write data on empty cd, vcd as as dvd's, but not able to recognize.
I installed DVDinfo and Neroinfo. It show my drive is working properly when I insert the disc but does not play the content. And says No media present.
Chef metioned "OK, cleaning the drive/lense could help here, it should be the first step.
But if it also fails on another computer, it's probably a hardware problem after all."
Later he mentioned "This is a sign of a buggored OS installation or wicked drivers..."
I am boggled by this. I have tried updating firmware from NEC RC1 to RC2 but no sucess as far as read. Now it started to ask me to insert data disc even though ts already there. It does not even open explorer window which earlier it was showing as empty.
I tried removing lower & upperfilter again. I even installed & changed the driver type manually to CDDA accurate from the Hardware list. No success. I will try other drivers too later.
Wold guess, Could it be the magnet that spins on top of lens gone bad?
I don't know. Is there anyone that has similar problem & has fixed/saved the drive.
