having a minor ( or major ) problem
I’ve had my Mach8 Lite-On DVDRW LDW-851S for a good 8 months now, never had any problems with the drive.
I had removed it from my system back in June and stored it away ( as I wasn’t backing up any CD/DVD for a while )
Well last week ( Sept 2nd 2004 ) I re-installed the Mach8 Lite-On DVDRW LDW-851S back in my computer , it READS and WRITES to CD-R/+R with no problem, but its not recognising DVDS
I’ve tried different brand DVD-R/+R and it still doesnt show up
the DRIVE shows up in Windows Explorer, but when the DVD is inside it doesn’t do anything ( after about 10 seconds of scanning the inserted disc )
In Windows explorer the F drive ( my CD/DVD ) it doesn’t show theres a DVD in the drive, but all CD workd and shows up
I tried BLANKS and Recorded DVD movies and NONE is working
My system has been updated (patches) by Microsoft a few times since June , I’m wondering if the Microsoft Patch may have caused this problem ?
None of my CD/DVD software is recognising when I insert DVD
anyone had this problem ? how can this be resolved ?
summary: DVD Drive plays and records to CD but won’t recognise DVDs
this system was working fine with DVDs for months, then suddenly stopped (?)
Thanks in advance for all information/help

Pentium 4 1.8 Ghz
512 MB DDR
98 MB Radeon Video Card
120 GIG HARDDRIVE ( C drive )
