this is my first post. i bought these drives a few years ao so please bare with me. i my ltd-163? it's pretty old skool. it won't read cd-roms, PERIOD. it can read dvd perfectly fine. which is a shame cuz i bought it for its fast dae spd. i've upgraded it to its latest official firmware.
my yamaha f1, also on it's latest official firmware, takes a few eject/spinups to read alotta cd's as well.
is dae really bad for these things??? right now i'm in the process of reconverting most of my music library into the "--alt preset standard" with EAC everyone at hydrogen audio is talking about, but my drives are soooo tempermental!!!
is it time for a new drive? cuz their primary features (for the lite-on [dvd] and yamaha[burning]) work absolutely fine, dangit!
LAST thing! i don't really understand the whole thing where sometimes, my optical drives disappear in windows...how do i get them back without rebooting?
