[QUOTE=Albert;2086585]Check your old drive. The old drive may have a different jumper configuration. Also, how is the drive connected on the cable?
How many discs have you tried, and are they CDs or DVDs?
When trying to read discs, does CPU usage suddenly jump up?
What are your system specs?
I know this is a lot of questions, but trying to get as much info as possible. ;)[/QUOTE]
my computers fine m8, if it worked with a dual layer philips drive its got to work with this liteon one way or another, im wondering if its because my old drive was IDE and this is EIDE. and of course im having to use what my pc’s cabling has got IDE? i know eide is hardware only related but somets wrong.
i got a AMD athlon 64 3800+ and im using cds, also with dvd mp3 disks that ive got i get I/O error when reading hidden files like thumbs.dll?
am gonna try centre pins and see what happens, if its still the same ill try running from the HD ide cable
this is ridiculous lol
