I’ve had a strange problem when installing my DVD Writer. I already had a DVD drive in the computer before hand and it worked fine. Then the second i put the dvd writer in as well, the normal dvd drive stopped working. it’l open and close but it won’t read discs. I tried using a different dvd drive and it had the same problem. yet both the drives work in my other computer. could it be that the dvd writer is stopping all other drives from reading cds and dvds for copyright reasons? i’ve run out of ideas. so any help would be appreciated.
System Info - 2 IDE HDD, 1 DVD Writer, 1 DVD Drive.
I’ve updated both drives firmware, tried every possible master/slave secondary/primary combination and upgraded my os from win98 to winMe all to no effect
