Just want peoples opinions as to whether this might be the dreaded PSU issue. Just replaced my Sony writer with the LG and it won’t recognise any DVD media, even original films. XP can’t decide whether it’s a CD drive (it reads CD’s ok) or a DVD-RAM drive. If I eject the DVD, Explorer changes to say it’s a DVD-RAM drive. Pushing the tray back in appears to time out and it changes back to ‘CD Drive’. I’ve flashed from DL12 to DL13 and reinstalled it several times. Should it show as two distinct volumes…one for DVD and another for CD? I’m only getting the one.
Thanks, Malcolm (who has a feeling he’s on his way back to the shop!)
P.S It’s the only device (master) on the secondary IDE
