I’ve tried 3 different DVD burners & couldn’t get any of them to function. I did the OS install with an ASUS DVD-E616P2, dvd-rom. That worked fine. Then I replaced it with a Pioneer 108 . I couldn’t get it to be recognized or get the tray to open. Next I tried the Plex 712 SATA, that was recognized & the tray would open, but it wouldn’t read or spin the discs. 3rd burner was the Benq DW1620. Got it recognized in BIOS & WXP sp2, but the led wouldn’t come on, nor would the tray open.
I tried different cables, different jumper settings, different power leads, reinstalled drivers, flashed back from 1003.007 to 1002 BIOS…
Sooooo, the last thing I could think of was the psu. May not be but I’ll eliminate that possibility tomorrow when my PC & Power Cooling Turbo 510 arrives!
I rma’d all the optical drives & I’ve got the following burners to work with over Christmas break; once I get the new psu installed:
AOpen DVD1648/AAP (DVD-ROM)
My goal is to get 2, (ok maybe 3 ) of the above working.
