Greetings DVD gods!
I’m a complete n00b at this stuff, so I’d appreciate any feedback you guys and girls can give me.
I bought a Philips DVD8701 drive from a friend and, after a Windows reinstall, installed it without any problems. It reads disks just fine. However, whenever I try to burn DVDs (only tried data DVDs so far), after a couple of minutes the drive locks up, the activity light begins to blink regularly and then Windows XP shuts down and my computer reboots.
Sending an error report to Microsoft yields the answer, “There is a driver conflict and we do not have a fix at this time”.
I did a search on the forum and didn’t see an answer to my question (so - sorry if this has been answered!). I don’t know what “reflashing” the drive means, but would that solve the issue I’m experiencing? I saw a lot of mention of people reflashing their 8701s to BenQs. Or does anyone know of any updated drivers for the DVD8701 that could help?
