Just purchased a new A08XL. First I noticed it wouldn’t read the soptware install disk that came with it, then I kept getting verification errors while burning…seems the drive will not read any disks. It seems to burn just fine, but can’t read. The directions didn’t tell me I would have to send it to school ;-).
Anyway, I returned the first one I bought and have the same problem with the second one. All burned disks open fine on other drives, but I can’t open anything on the AO8. I’ve also flashed the drive to the latest firmware.
My old AO4 works just fine using the same cables and jumper settings.
