#1

My drive isn’t able to burn any DVD. It always ends with “communication failure” error. I wonder is this error anyhow connected with serial-ata feature? I’m considering to replace it with some IDE AD-7173BL or AD-7170A.
Thanks. :sad:


#2

And which media would you suggest me?
Right now, i use DVD-R Verbatim 16x


#3

Which motherboard do you use?


#4

Intel 915PGN.


#5

I think you have an Intel IC6 Chipset which work with optical drives so Please set the Sata ports to non-raid mode or IDE Mode in the bios, that will fix the problem for you


#6

I didn’t find anywhere in bios that option…
Further instructions? :confused:


#7

I flash bios few minutes ago and the error remains… :a
I think I’ll replace this drive with ordinary IDE drive.


#8

Kreso is your MB MSi ASUS Abit OR Intel? Please let me know.


#9

It is Intel MB

Hello!
Here I am again… I went to the shop where I purchased my drive and gave it for inspection. Guys down there found out nothing wrong with drive, but they allowed me to replace it (because I came back 8 days after I purchased it). Anyway, i took IDEE Lite-On LH-20A1P. Don’t call me traitor please… :rolleyes:
