Hi everyone, man...I'm really frustrated.
Running Win2KPro SP4, with one existing LG CD-RW drive (master) and the newly purchased DVR-109BK (slave) from newegg.
So when I first got this DVD drive 2 weeks back, it worked nicely and I was able to read DVDs. The firmware update went smoothly, in spite of some of the posts from this forum with people having that sort of problems.
Yesterday afternoon, I found a copy of InterVideo WinDVD v.4.0 from my old Dell. I thought I'd try installing this into my new computer because I liked the WinDVD layout.
Installation initialized, and error message says: "This isn't a Dell computer." Force terminate. So I thought, OK that's fine. I can make do with the skimpy DVD player on my computer that came with the 109BK. And then I had to leave, so I shut down the computer, as I do normally.
Turned it back on today, and the drive doesn't read anything at all. Tried CDs, a movie DVD, a data DVD, nothing reads. When I put in a disc, it reads for a LONG time, and the green "busy" light stays on for a while. When I try to access the disc from My Computer, "H:\ is inaccessible. Incorrect function."
Device Manager says the 109BK is working properly. The troubleshooting, as expected, failed to help. Tried uninstall/reinstall - did not have success.
PLEASE PLEASE advise!!! What's wrong with my drive?
