I was afraid of that. I even tried uninstalling all burning software and removing the drive from the chain. rebooted and cleaned out all the orphan files from the registry etc. reinstalled the cdr, installed Nero and it wouldn't see the media in the drive it saw the drive and I can read media from it but it will not see a blank disk now. I am afraid it is dead. Somethng else to take apart.
I now have another question. I have a SCSI setup 3 scsi Hd's, Plextor Ultra wide 40x, etc. When I got the imation the ide drives were not very good, however they seem a lot better now. SCSI stuff is still priced very high. I can buy a 16x plextor ide for less than the price of a 12x plextor scsi. What would you recommend as a new burner? Stick with SCSI, or go IDE? Go with plextor or something else?
