More times than not when I put a cd of any format or type in my cd burner, I get the amber flash code of 2. According to Plextors site it means the drive could possibly be defective. This is a brand new burner just installed a week or so ago. The funny thing is that its intermittent. Sometimes I try and use it and its just fine, then other times it just wont read a cd at all, just the 2 flash amber code appear. Then I can wait for a bit and try it again and it will work.
I have my hard drives on SATA controllers, and using IDE channels for CD Roms. I have my plextor as a master drive on IDE 1, with a DVD player set as a slvae to the plextor. My IDE 2 just has a zip drive on it. Other system specs in sig.
Let me know if you can help before I return this thing…LOL.
