I’m making a new computer for a friend, and he wanted a DVD-RW so I bought this one due to it being on special offer at the time. I’m using Windows Media Center and when I first put a CD in the drive, I would get the error:
Only part of a ReadProcessMemory or WriteProcessMemory request was completed
Anyway I fix that at first changing the Transfer Mode to PIO in device manager and now it reads disks fine. However it doesn’t show the CD’s custom Icon when I insert a cd, it just shows one like:
I did a windows update and uninstalled the drive then it recognised the drive as a BENQ DC DW1670, and appears as a DVD-RAM drive in my computer, so I revert it to “DMA if Available” in Device Manager instead of PIO, it read disks fine now, but I still get the funny CD icon. If theres no CD in the drive I just get a normal Drive icon like usual.
I could live with it, if it was my computer but seeing as its someone elses, I don’t want to give it them half baked. Please could someone help me out, would it be a motherboard/bios or windows problem or could it be the drive? I don’t want to void the warranty incase I need to send it back.
Just to note, I installed a Sony CD-RW (don’t know which one) and it worked fine and shows the CD’s custom icon. however if I insert a new CD it keeps the icon of the old CD even if I refresh the page. This makes me think it could be to do with the motherboard/windows.
I’d be really gateful if someone could help me, I’ve tried numerous forums and recieved no replies
The specs of the machine are:
3400+ AMD sempron 64
1GB DDR RAM
MSI K8MM3-V with onboard VGA + audio
160GB Maxtor HDD
