Ive got two different DVD RW drives, a BenQ 1640 and a Samsung SH-162D. I bought the samsung lately, installed in my new pc, and for my surprise, it doenst read most media properly, wont let me erase my RW media, it says its regular -R.
I thought it was a defective dvd drive problem, but as I tried it on my other pc, it works perfectly. Then I tried my other dvd drive(BenQ) in this PC and it has the same problems. Im guessing its either defective windows system files, or hardware problem… hopefully its the first… I could try to format all my system, but I dont really wanna do that again…
If someone knows all the system files required to dvd/cd run properly, I’d like to know, maybe if I replace them it might work.
My running on:
1024 Samsung Ram
ASUS P5DL2-SE MB
WD 250GB SATA 2
WINXP PRO SP2
