First of all, you guys are a wealth of information. I’ve been lurking for a few weeks and I am impressed by the knowledge here.
On to my question…
My Plextor 24/10/40A can’t see the contents of any CD that I insert. At first I thought it was just CD’s that I had burned, but it can’t even read store bought CD’s. My Toshiba DVD ROM can read everything just fine.
The strange part is, The Plextor can Burn like crazy. It makes perfect CD’s all the time…data, music…no problems at all. It just can’t read anything. BUT…If I place a CD in the drive, then do a restart of my PC, the drive will read the CD just fine…but only when the CD in the drive on boot-up.
Here’s some specs…hopefully this will help you help me.
-Asus P4S333 Mobo
-I just upraded the firmware of my Plextor 24/10/40A to 1.04…no help.
-ASPICHK.EXE shows my ASPI installation as version 4.60. I just installed the ASPI layer, previously it was non-existent. Still no help.
-The drive is the master on IDE channel 1 (secondary)
Any ideas? If there’s some important info that you need that I left out…just ask, and I’ll track it down and post it.
Thank You in advance!
