It is hard I have a problem:
I have a stack of Sony DVD blanks, a '10 roxio and LDW-411S with my Dell's original CD writer. I run Celeromn D with Windows XP.
I need dell's original cd writer for booting.
My LDW-411S does not recognize Sony DVD-Rs, but if put the disk in and pull it out many times, and disable and enableall my optical drives, my
LDW-411S may recognize a blank, write on it and then read it sucessefuly.
I cannot pinpoint why it reads sony discs sometimes.
In most cases the computer tells me there is no disc inside LDW-411S.
The Player is spinning for fiew seconds after i put the blank in and than stops.
What is going on?
I updated LDW-411S driver, installed an IDE cable with more strands.
What is the matter and why it happens but intermittently?
Is there any way I can reconfigure my computer to boot without my original CD player?
If I rewire my computer for booting from the DVD writer BIOS names it:
"Secondary Master: Unknown device", with jumper set to cable select on the DVD.
It doesn't work a lot more times than it works when I put the blank in.
