There is someone over at Yamaha trying to help. He.she is slow but has given me something I hope he/she sticks around.
He suggested putting the drive on the Secondary IDE channel as a MASTER. and disabling Windows recording feature in the properties of the drive...done.
Drive letter has changed (sarcastic yay :P) After puttin gin a CD the light blnks appropriatley and then goes solid waiting state windows sends me an error that says something like :
CD is unreadable or not formated in a format that windows recognizes.
So i try a CD that I formated WITH the drive ..same thing. All CDs produce the same thing.
I tried to boot of the drive from CD and that didn't work either ..i have a feeling this drive is fried. I hope not.
I have Nero 5.1 installed (i thnk that's the version) and that's it. Nothing else as the other dood asked about.
Thanks for your time.
BTW DOOD with the SONY POS get your own thread !!!!! LMFAO
