I’m running a Gateway notebook/Vista with an Optiarc 7530A driver.
Problem is that it will read and burn cds just fine, but won’t recognize any dvds. Autoplay is a no go and if I manually play through My Computer, it tells me to insert a disc.
I’ve manually deleted the upper and lower filters and rebooted. No change. I uninstalled and reinstalled with device manager, no change. I’ve tried several different dvds including burned, manufactured, and blank with no change. And I’ve manually reinstalled the entire drive out of the panel. Still nothing. BIOS recognizes it just fine…so I don’t know what’s going on.
I was told to maybe update the firmware, only to find that it’s near impossible to actually find firmware for this specific model.
