[qanda]This thread is about the Optiarc AD-7200A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Does Nero 18.104.22.168(a) support the Optiarc 7200A? I installed on my Dimension 4700 as a replacement and, at first, nero wouldn't even see it. Then, after a complete restart, it saw it, but when I tried to burn a test DVD, it made a coaster.
A little history, I pulled this burner out of a machine I had repaired (a walmart special HP 304W). It failed every time it tried a burn and so did the CDRW that had previously worked fine. I swapped my lite-on (SHW160P6S05) for the 7200A and it worked fine in the HP. After a complete restart, Nero in my Dell recognized the 7200, and I tried a test burn. Can you say coaster?
This deal is stock all the way. I'm wondering if the problem is with the old copy of nero or if this drive is a brick. Any thoughts?
