Hi everyone, I’ll keep this concise.
my system is an Acer Travelmate 2700, running Win XP home, normal everyday setup, no mods.
i have an LG GSA-E40L external DVD-RAM multi burner.
It works fine with DVD movies, but try it with anything else (CD media of any kind, blank DVD-R etc) and it doesn’t work. Windows recognises it as a “CD Drive” rather than a DVD-RAM drive when I use any of the offending media.
Tried it with several different programs, Nero 7, NTI, Media Player, you name it. Nothing.
I bought it new about a year ago, and it was behaving itself until recently, worked fine. I have no idea what happened. I don’t have Alcohol or Daemon or anything, no virtual drive issues, the drivers and the firmware are up to date.
