I just upgraded my PC to an HP DC7700 with Q965 Express chipset and preloaded with XP Pro SP2. I bought the AD-7170S along with 3Gb of Ram a 500GB Sata HDD and new GFX card
Upon installing the Optiarc, it became abundantly clear that the it was unable to read ANY media, despite it being recognised in the BIOS and having the generic drivers installed automatically upon booting windows.
I took the step of upgrading to Vista Home Premium with the hope that some new generic drivers may spur the optiarc into action, but alas, it hasn't.
I'm now STUMPED as I've tried using the binflash firmware update and I still am no-where closer to getting this problem fixed.
Can anyone suggest a method of fixing this? Are there any drivers I can download and use? Or do I have to send a pefectly good dvd rw drive packing?
