Ahhhggggg i need help. my DVD-RW is not working. Whenever i try to put any kind of media in it, and read it, it locks up explorer. When i try to burn an ISO image using DVD Decrypter, or Nero 6 it tells me theres no Blank Media in the drive. I thought maybe it might be the DVD that was bad so i tried a few more off the spindle and they dont work. So then i tried to use some blank CDs and none of those worked either.
Im currently running windows XP. I have a DVD-ROM set to master, and DVD-RW (NEC-2500a) set to slave. Now i dont know what version of Firmware i have (and it seems that most NECs seem to ship with firmware) i also dont know if i have any ASPI installed or what not. umm i dont know what else to put up. Ive been searching through the forums hoping to find an ansewr to my problem but i have had no luck. I dont know what other information to post so if you need any just tell me.
