I recently installed a Sony DRU-V200S/BR DVD Rewritable SATA drive, and it has been giving me headaches ever since. Initially after installation, the drive showed up in BIOS but was not recognized by Windows XP.
This continued for a day or two until suddenly, and for no apparent reason, the drive was recognized by XP. It worked perfectly for about a day during which I was able to burn several dvds, but then disappeared suddenly, again for no apparent reason.
My computer is a Compact Precerio (can't recall the exact model, but its about 5 years old), with an AMD athlon 3000 processor and Windows XP home edition. Service pack 2 is installed.
I have tried deleting upperfilters and lowerfilters from the registery, to no avail. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
