My DVR-109 seems to burn DVDs fine (and very quickly). My only problem with it is that it only gets detected in the BIOS some of the time.
It usually gets detected correctly when I first turn the machine on, and then disappears after a restart, but sometimes does not appear in the BIOS when the machine is first turned on.
I have updated to the latest firmware (1.17). The drive is on the secondary IDE channel and is master, there is a hard disk on the channel as well, which is set to slave. I have tried having the DVD drive as slave and the hard drive as master, but the problem occurred more frequently in that configuration. If the drive is not detected in the BIOS, it is still detected by windows, and reads discs correctly (I have not tried writing yet).
my motherboard has an nForce 250GB chipset.
Has anyone else had this problem? And does anyone know of a solution?
thanks for your time.
