Just bought the burner and a couple of problems have cropped up.
Unable to read CD/CDR discs
At first I thought it was a hardware problem and exchange with another unit but the result was the same. Did some research and found that some registry setting have to be modified as per http://support.microsoft.com/kb/270008/ , even though I’ve never used Adaptec Easy CD Creator. Anyway now the problem is resolved.
Unable to recognize blank DVD-R discs
Before exchanging the first burner, I managed to write to a DVD-R disc. Even then it was spotty - sometimes it can read the blank DVD-R but most of the time it could not. After getting the new burner, it can’t read the DVD-R at all. BTW the blank DVD-R I’m using is Sony 1-8x 10DMR47S2SP. Have no problem at all with DVD+R ie can read and write. Have not tried other media.
BTW I’m using w2000 pro with Nero 6 oem.
Anyone has any ideas? Appreciate any feedback. InfoTool.txt is attached.
