I have had this drive for a year or so and it had worked flawlessly until now. It still works great for ripping movies and burning them but when a ps2 dvd is inserted the light stays on indefinetly and locks up explorer which then I have to reboot. I have flashed the firmware to remove the riplock but I'm pretty sure this isn't it as I have forced the original firmware from pioneer back on it. I have even tried from dos promt and it still won't work. The strange thing is when I insert a backup dvd of a ps2 game it reads it just fine.
I have tried it from safemode as well. I have used msconfig in diagnostic startup also to no avail.
Is this the first sign of the drive going bad.
It use to make perfect backups of ps2 dvd's.
