Hello, I've searched the net but could not find a solution to this. Instead a lot more questions arouse, he
I have an old Presario 2100 with a QSI SB-241 not burning cd's, this drive sucks, so i got off of Ebay a matshita UJ 841s DVD RAM drive and put it in my laptop.
At first it wasn' t detected by XP, then I follow someone's advice to delete lower and upper limits off the registry, it was detected by BIOS and installed fine under XP and it worked exactly one time, I burned 1 DVD with Nero 7. then i got an error of SCSI command ( probably from Daemon tools)
Then I tried to burn a CD and the Drive dissapeared off My PC. since then the lap takes like 30 seconds to start booting XP (as if it is trying to detect the boot drive or something), If I hit F2 BIOS does not show any cd/dvd drive.
Is this drive compatible with my motherboard? is it a bad drive? does it need a firmware update/hack? when It was detected it showed version 1.60 under nero.
If a need to buy another stuff, what should I look for?
Sorry for this long post, I would really like to get this thing working right.
Thanks in advance.
