I've got an old Ricoh 4x SCSI burner which recenlty hasn't been able to access any cd's. I have windows XP installed which I only installed yesterday as I installed a new hdd. I don't think its worked since the new hdd was put in.
Windows detects it and I can see the drive and scsi card in the device manager. On bootup the access light on the drive comes on. I double click on the drive icon in my computer and it asks me to insert a CD.
I uninstalled the scsi card and burner drivers from device manager and windows deteced it ok. I then checked the scsi cable connections and power to the drive is ok but still the same thing.
also when I loaded up clonecd it asked me to put a cd in and the drive light would flash but it wouldn't see the cd I had put in there.
Anyone got any suggestions? I would have though if the drive was dead it would respond at all to windows. Is there a windows update I may need as this is a fresh install of XP. Its not my main drive thankfully but I like having it to leave in game cds without having to interupt burning on my other drive.
Also its the only device on the scsi card and it hasn't been moved since it wa originally installed a few months ago.
