Ok to cut to the chase my AOpen DUW 1608/ARR DVDRW drive will READ CDs but not DVDs (it wont write CDs though). The operating system (Windows 2000) seems to me to recognise it as a CD-ROM drive.
I have tried the newest driver (several times) from the AOpen website. Other things I have tried/checked:
The device is set to master (is only CD/DVD drive I have).
I have made sure all wires are ok (the fact that CDs actually work indicates this).
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the device.
My IDE channels are set to â€˜DMA if availableâ€™
As far as I can tell (am no expert…) installing the latest driver appear to be ineffective as when computer restarts windows identifies drive and installs its standard CD-ROM driver for it. Thats my take on it…
