I'm not exactly a technophobe but definitely not a techy and I need your help.
Basically, installed windows 7(asus a8r-mvp) and although my drive does read discs, its been playing up and will only record on odd occassions, windows 7 constantly freezes, re-starts and stuggles to start certain programs, then on other occassions(rare) I'll do a whole session without it restarting.
So today, it wouldnt burn a music cd so I thought I'd update the drivers ATAPI DVD A DH20A4P and stumbled upon your firmware downloads, flashed fine, went to restart the computer and upon windows opening I just get a blank screen with the cursor, I've restarted several times and I'm still just getting a blank screen.
I can get it to work fine in safe mode, I'm assuming because its only using the basic drivers. I've uninstalled it and on restart windows recognises the drive, installs drivers and it comes up under DVD/CD-ROM drives in device manager but only comes up as CD DRIVE on my computer as if its not being recognised??
Any help info would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
