Hi all im brand new as u can see i’ve been having issues reading cd’s. Just to start off here are my specs: xp pro sp2 (32-bit) SOHW-1693s /w KSOB I don’t think u need anything else if u do just ask thx. Basically I can read and write dvds but I cant do jack with cd’s read nor write with any type of cd kind cd-rom,cd-r or cd-rw. Im pretty sure I have the newest firmware (KSOB) but I think it has nothing to do with it. If u need any more information with specs or the dvd rw drive just ask. Any help will be most appreciated.
