I’ve upgraded to a new ASRock X48 Intel chipsets motherboard and I’m getting this intermittent loss of my DVD-ROM drive, is anybody else experiencing this issue ?
I know it’s an old DVD-ROM rewriter but I’m loathe to upgrade until the blue Ray rewriters come below Â£100. Plus I am under the impression that SATA optical drives have been causing problems to some people so I am willing wait this one out and continue with my old faithful NEC DN-2500a especially as it works in XP 32-bit and it also works in other 64-bit vista PC is that I have.
I’ve contacted the manufacturer of the motherboard ASRock and they suggest upgrade the firmware and I didn’t need to do that with the other ASRock 1333 DVI-HD motherboard that I also have.
Any help appreciated regarding this particular DVD-ROM issue or suggestions on a temporary upgrade whilst I wait for Windows Vista 64-bit/SATA/blue Ray drives to sort themselves out.
