Well, folks - I need some advice - badly!
The new Optiarc 7530b that I installed two weeks ago suddenly lost its speed control, made loud clicking noises, and refused to eject discs. I was able to send it back to the seller - and am told I’ll get a new 7530 in exchange - UNLESS - their testing shows it is working properly.
My question to them was “if the unit were working properly, why would I spend my own time and money to send it back for another one?” I hope to hear later this week.
Now - is there ANYTHING in my Dell Inspiron 6000 that might be causing first the NEC 6650, then the Optiarc 7530 to lose speed control and refuse to burn properly?
I’ve gone into Device Manager, and checked through the drivers, and all are listed as working properly.
I finally replaced my old and slow Sony drive, and it is working perfectly, though v e r r r y slowly. SIGH.
I think I’m jinxed!
Any - and I mean A N Y - help is greatly appreciated here. Y’all obviously know much more than I do.
