Hopefully someone can shed some light on this.
Recently, i had to change the region on my Samsung SH-W162C drive for the first time ( i bought this brand new 12 months ago).
After i had done so, the drive refused to read ANY disc at all.. The discs won't even spin up..
First thing i thought, the drive was faulty and it was a co-incidence it happened at that particular time.
Anyway, i decided to pull another SH-W162C drive out of my Media Centre in the lounge room.
Followed the same procedure as above, and it too stopped working !!!
I thought WTF !?!?!
Now i have 2 dead SH-W162C drives, and have no idea why...
I am running Windows Vista Ultimate... Can anyone shed some light on this ???
The funny thing is, that when i try to change the region in windows, it tells me that it can't do it, and something about admin previledges...
Check out with DISCInfo, and it says i have 7 user changes left and 6 manufacturers resets left.
