Received said drive today, on installation as a master drive on its own IDE channel, it does not detect a dvd, music cd or region free dvd. The explorer box just comes up blank every time. There is no autoplay obviously because it does not see any disc.
The drive registers as being there, there was no problems on “install”. Obviously it doesn’t work as a slave to on primary IDE with hard drive, with my lg 4163b as a master on other IDE channel. The lg works fine as a master on its own IDE channel.
Nero info tool detects the lite-on giving all the info about it apart from a serial number. Upgraded to official KS04 fimware [says to only do it if encounter problems on website], so I can’t see that voiding the warranty; all completed and verified first time…still doesn’t work.
Have I missed some thing basic here. I’m running win XP pro sp 2. Asus A7N8X deluxe mobo. (Also just installed a SATA hard drive without problems, but I cant see how that could effect a dvd rom on an IDE channel at all)
