Thanks for the reply guys, and Pinto2 here is my info:
I have the complete Nero 188.8.131.52 package installed, along with PowerDVD and i (had) DVDSanta installed <----maybe that proggy was the problem
Also, maybe my ASPI is out of date? I have V4.70 of ASPI32.sys and WNASPI32.dll<---dated back to Dec 10,2001 :eek:
As for my ide cables, on the primary one i have my 2 HDD's and on my secondary i set the BenQ as the master and my old Mitsumi as a slave. However, when i was indeed installing the BenQ a few weeks ago, i had the mistumi as a master and an older LG as a slave, i did lot of switching around then ended up with the mistumi as slave and BenQ as master, like it currently is now.
Would perhaps setting both optical drives to CS on the jumper settings help? One of my friends suggested this, im not sure yet.
Also, i should note cd-r's burn fine with the drive, just no sort of DVD can be burned:(
