I bought a GSA-5163D no long ago. I have a no-brand old desktop with USB 1.1 port and Windows 2000 SP4. The drive works fine with this computer although it is slow. But this is understandable because the computer has only USB 1.1 port.
The problem is that the drive does not work with my Dell Inspiron 600m notebook (Windows XP Pro SP2). I do not use video DVD, just use DVD to store data files. When I connect the drive to the computer, the computer can find the drive. But if I try to copy a large file (300M) from the DVD drive to computer, I get the error message " The volume for a file has been externally altered so that the opened file is no longer valid". Then the computer loses the drive. I cannot see the drive in Windows Explorer. Burning does not work properly either, but I think I should first solve the reading problem.
Did anybody have similar problem? How did you solve it?
