Hey guys.. I am having some issues with my PC and I'm totally and utterly baffled.. Firstly my Specs:
Asus A7n8X-Deluxe Mobo (Rev 2.00) latest BIOS
1gb PC3200 DDR Ram (TwinMOS)
AMD XP3000 CPU
Geforce 6800GT 256MB gfx
2xSATA HD (1x 200gb 1x300gb)
1x250Gb IDE HD
2xPioneer 110D DVDRW
Tagan 550w Trupower PSU
Now my problem.. please bear with me as this could be a long post but I want to try and cover everything I've tried..
I am having trouble READING RiDISC DVD-R Discs that I have been using fine for a looong time..
Basically the PC/Drives wont READ the discs, for some reason the PC thinks they are blank even though they are not.
I have tested the discs on various pc's with same and differing DVD-RW drives and they work on all of them.
I have updated/downgraded firmware on BOTH drives.. nothing
Updated Mobo BIOS and Drivers (inc IDE drivers)
Changed IDE cables and moved drives around (master/slave. Chan 01/02 etc) and nothing
Tried to read them in PIO mode and DMA
Checked BIOS, reset it and reconfigured..
Swapped power lines around
Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong..
Here is a link to the media ID code which will tell you more about the discs. (Seems to be the discs with this dye on) : http://www.videohelp.com/dvdmedia.ph...=3059#comments
