Hi I just bought a NEC 2500A earlier today. I got the drive home and installed it. Windows detected aporpreiatly. But i got the weirdest thing is goin on. Pretty much any disc i put in it starts to spin so fast that it seems the disc is bouncing off the sides. It just bounces and bounces but the discs wont read.
It would read 2 of my store bought dvd movies and blank cd-r's with no crazing spinning or clicking noises. But CD-r's that i have burnt, and store bought cd's just spin and click. I havn't seen anything like this reported in the forumns anywhere.
I'm wondering is this something that a firmware upgrade can fix or is this drive dead and im gonna have to try to exchange it?
