Hi, wanted to get some advice regarding a 6450A in my notebook. It will read CD’s, DVD’s & DVD +RW. It will also write CD’s succesfully, but it has stopped writing any form of DVD’s (tried DVD+R and DVD +RW).
I wanted to get opinions - should I 1) rebuild the OS or 2) consider the drive faulty. I suspect that my problem may have been caused by the Starforce copy protection in Silent Hunter III. I have a genuine copy of this game and it stopped working last week (wouldn’t recognise the original DVD). Now have a new code for it and it works again… but because of all the bad press the StarForce protection is receiving I thought I’d better check my DVD writer still works and it doesn’t.
Anyone think this could be a coincidence (and therefore a faulty drive) or one of the strange problems associated with Starforce (and therefore an OS rebuild is required) ??
