Hi, my name Darren, I'm definitely THE WOSRT newbie here.
I've recently purchased a DVR a09XLB, changed the jumper to slave, conneted on the same bus with my harddrive. The BIOS detected my a09 XL but somehow under the OS, IT WOULD NOT READ ANYTHING.
The system had no problem detecting it, it's shown up in every software.
But somehow, it does not read any type of discs, CDR, CDRW, DVDR, DVDRW, nothing works.
So I updated the firmware to the latest 1.57, the same problem persist. And even worse, it's shown up as a normal cd rom, software can detect its presence but does not recognize its maker and model number.
I've read earlier in forum of "wickedthistle" 's problem with this A09XL, his problem is similar to mine, but mine seems worse, at least he can read some discs.
I have not yet tried the UDMA 80 conductor method, which I will try tonight.
Can someone plz point me to the right direction? Why would it only work with UDMA 80 conductor, not 40? And why after changing the firmware(I'm sure I got the right one), the system can no longer recognize it anymore?
Thanks guy, please help.
