I know that there’re a lot of post similar to this but it could be totally a different bug.
I just got a cendyne rebadged verbatim rebadged liteon 24X cdrw (verbatim label on liteon’s). Win2kSP1 recognized it, no on-boot-ejection problem. However, when I insert a pressed CD, it tries to read it then ejects it. If I put in a burnt CDR or a DirectCD disc, it’ll keep it in but not seen in explorer (ie, as if there is no CD in drive).
I’ve tried the unplug and replug tricks but still no go. The bios at cendyne website is for liteon drive but since the firmware on mine is verbatim, it won’t flash. Can’t find any on verbatim site. Might be compatibility issue with m/b.
Anyone has exactly the same problem? Got a solution? A hacked firmware?
