I have had just swapped my LG Super-Multi drive for a Lite-On 20A1P drive that I have had knocking around since Christmas. I am running Vista and am now experiencing a strange problem.
The drive is recognised correctly by the BIOS and Vista, and I can see the drive both in device manager and explorer, but it doesn’t seem to want to read any pre-recorded disc’s - DVD’s CD’s, data or otherwise.
The disc is spun up and an attempt to read is made, but if I go into explorer to view, explorer just freezes. The disc continues to spin until I press the eject button, at which point explore will unfreeze.
However, blank disc (both CD’s and DVD’s) appear to be recognised and vista will pop up the standard “What do you want to do?” dialogue immediately.
I have updated the firmware to version KL0A with no difference. The drive appear to function correctly as I can boot from a bootable CD/DVD.
Anyone have any thoughts?
