Uninstall PowerDVD properly, then re-install it.

I’m also having trouble with this drive(IDE5216CO). My Windows 98 machice detects the drive as a CD-ROM. I believe it has to do with the drivers. The firmware is up to date. I summited a request to IOmagic for help. I’ll have to wait and see what they have to say.

:bow:

You can run tools like Discinfo, Nero infotool, DVDinfopro to find out more about your drive.

My Combo IDE5216CO burns the disc also, but it won’t read the disc it has just burned. Also it won’t read hom-made discs either. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?
