No DVD or Cd recognition with DVDRW SOHW 1673s

Hey there,

I can’t seem to get any sort of response from my DVDRW SOhw-1673s in regards to cds or dvds. Windows recognises it and the driver is there and i can eject it from within disk manager, but it just wont do anything with any media types.

I have updated the latest Firmware JSOD. Still no luck.

I use Win XPpro.

I have the pins set to cable select and in BIOS i have set my DVDRW to master and my LITE-ON SOHC-5232k set to slave. This reads both DVD and Cds without problem.

When i insert the cd into my DVDRW the light goes on solid as the tray goes in but then just goes off.

I have searched the library here for info on how to fix this but have been unsuccessful.

Any help would be muchly appreciated.

regards,

Ryd

it could be defective… do you have warranty?
