Sorry I can't respond sooner.
Ok, I looked at my setup again. I am running two cables even though it's a SFF. I have the HD as master on primary IDE and the burner as master on the IDE for two hookups (like burner and floppy but in this case it's just the burner). Both are 80 wire cables.
I'm confused. And as of recently it has now decided to play NO DVD's! The couple I knew to work just would not work anymore. This all happened in the same day. And I promise, I never changed anything. I hadn't even cracked open the case. I just get the same blink, blink, pause, blink, blink, pause of the amber light over and over. I don't get it. This is a good setup I have. The burner has been like this out of the box.
Was it dropped or something?! ANY HELP AT THIS POINT IS NEEDED CAUSE I'M GOING NUTS! I have this kool burner. I've been reading about Plextor for years but they're over priced here in Chi. Finally find a place with a deal and I have the top burner out - AND IT WON'T PLAY MOVIES?! (sigh)
