#1

ok so when i first installed everything it looked great…windows picked up everything and the drive was installed very quickly…i put a cd in the nec drive and it read it fine…then when i put a dvd in there thats when the problems began…so far the drive only reads one dvd for some reason…everytime i put another dvd in ithe drive it sounds like its reading it but then nothing happens…when i click on the drive from the computer it says please insert a disc into the drive…ive tried upgrading the firmware and nothing is working…please if anyone has any suggestions…i thought maybe it was because the drive is hooked up through usb but i dunno…please help anyone this is getting really frustrating

I think the best idea would be to read the big enclosures thread and choose an reliable enclosure for your burner…
