I've read lots of posts but none seem exactly to be my problem.
My problem is that my new DVD-RW 1620 installs but does not see any disks I put in - it makes a short bussing sound then the light flashes for a bit and then goes out. If I open it in explorer, it says "please insert a disk" and waits.
I have flashed firmware to the latest (G7M9) to no avail and even converted to the B7 series.
My setup is thus:
KT3 Ultra MoBo (VIA KT333 based)
Windows XP pro SP1
Primary IDE Master & slave HDs
Secondary Master DVD-RW
Slave AOpen CD-RW
I have tried :
Uninstalling the IDE manager and devices which are detected. I don't think it's a cable problem as I have moved the CD-RW to both positions on the secondary IDE cable and it works at both whilst the DVD-RW works at neither.
Am I missing something simple or do I have a faulty DVD writer?
Hope you can help...
