OK i use Traxdata dvd’s “RicohJpn R02 (003)” not sure if its same with other dvd’s, but when i boot up pc, and insert dvd - it works fine, then after about 60 minutes if u click on dvd-drive it start reading from dvd, but never stop untill u click eject. When you insert dvd back it looks like blank dvd, nero “disk info” says disk is empty.
After restart it start working again.
This issue remains under windows 2000 and XP.
Firmware version 2.1A, but it was same with previous version to.
Drive on secondary ide channel as master transfer mode UDMA-2.
