Hi, I'm new - I'll get to the point:
I'm using a Sony DRU-510AK (as slave)
Can't open the drive (the above Sony) using the button or the GUI. Won't detect any disc. The LED constantly flashes (never stops, begins immediately on powerup). Windows Explorer recognises the drive as "CD Drive", while BIOS, Device Manager and Nero Infotools recognise it as "Sony BOOT DRU-510AK".
Went to burn a DVD, came back after 40 minutes and only 1 percent was completed (usually does it in 13 minutes). So I tried to end the task, and the computer crashed, so I reset.
What I've tried (in order):
Tried Shutting down for a minute
Tried Flashing (program won't detect DVD drive)
Booted up without data cable
Booted up without power cable
Left the tray open on bootup (using manual emergency eject)
Swapped the data cable with the RICOH MP7200A (swapped back after)
