I just upgraded my system and added the Sony Optiarc 7170S drive to it. This may be a W2K issue but I am not sure. I can read a CD in the drive. When I load a DVD it tells me “Specified device, file or path not available” and nothing happens.
I went to Liggy and Dee’s site and downloaded and burned in the newst firmware.
I downloaded a trial version of Any DVD and it seemed to read it and remove the RCS needed to be able to copy. I don’t have a DVD-R with me so I can’t try to burn it.
I am a little confused about what’s supposed to make this drive work. There was no software with it. Do I need CloneDVD? Also Windows Media player doesn’t recognize it. This is my first foray into DVD’s. I really need this to work as my two sons are quickly destroying DVD’s and I need to make backups.
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I have looked through the Nooby sticky’s and can’t find what I am looking for.
