Following the thread I have posted some days ago (http://forum.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=47962)
I still want to ask this: Is there a way to make the BIOS of the Mother Board recognize my half-dead CD BURNER ?
There was a guy on this forum talking about change the options in the bios settings and choose USER DEFINED and not AUTO, if I choose USERs, another options show up and I can choose LARGE NORMAL or LBA , and if I try to change it, the computer freeze ...
Anyway, even if I choose USERS DEFINED, the bios still doesn't recognize it, but the boot sequence is a little bit more long, and when I am in windows XP the red LED of the tour is allways ON but that's all, so, it does something but not much.
the state of my burner now is:
cannot open it, unrecognizable by bios, and the orange led of the face is allways ON.
Help ME, help YOU (would you believe that ?)
