I have recently aquired a Sony CRX215E1 48x/24x/48x CD-RW drive…installed it as slave on my IDE cable…my pc will not even recognise that it is a RW drive and not a CD ROM. THe drive was bundled with no software, which originally wasn’t a concern as I planned on using Nero for my burn program having had experience with it on other ppl’s systems and liked it…and the drive was supposed to be a plug-n-play kinda deal.
Ok…I have a dinosaur of a system - Pentium II @ 300 mHz with 128 meg of PC 100 RAM running Win98se…yes, I know…strategically outdated, but it was absolutely free and I have broadband access…so my internet needs are met satisfactorily and I do no high-end RAM-eating graphics so I’m ok on that score.
Has anyone else run across this problem at all? I find very little info on this particular model number to start with…heaps on a CRX215A1 but little to no help on a CRX215E1. I found a few sites discussing flashing the drive…updating firmware…and things of that ilk, but I am realistically pc illiterate and know nothing about either of these procedures but am intelligent enough to know that I need not attempt it because of this lack of knowledge.
Help?!? Some1 ?!? Please ?!?
