I’ve just recieved my lovely Sony AW-G170A from ebuyer. I’m not so technical so this was my first internal purchase, if you get what i mean.
So I’ve got a suitable Dell 3000, nothing special, but nothing awful, theres nothing of note, iv not tricked it out with all manner of bells and whistles ( mainly because its a Dell 3000, there arnt many bells and whistles about! )
Looking through the manual it said i needed to make the drive cable select, luckily for me the drive didnt come with a manual, im so happy right about now!
Go looking around on the internet finally find an article on the web about some NEC drive or some such and how to move the jumper thingi ma boby
After looking at that I thought i best look at my current drive…a Philips DVD8631, and looking at the back i saw [:]:: arrangement on the jumper bits. So i did the same with my Sony drive. Plugged in the wide multi wire thing, and what i assume is the power cables. And turn it on
Success, windows found it and began installing the drivers, so far so good
Then i put in a dvd ( it works find on the philips drive ) and the playback was substandard. It kept alternating between quiet and loud, and i think its playing it a fraction too slow.
Whats wrong with the darn thing, is it not spinning the disk correctly, is the laser just crap?!?! i dont know
I’ve uninstalled the driver. Restarted, and let windows find the drivers again. But to no avail
any help would be greatly appriciated…oh and please put this in the right place, im not a very forum savvy person ( basicly the newbiest newb this side of newbton abby )
