There is a strange problem that I had encountered! Just today my DVD-RW can not recognize any discs that I inserted. While I inserted the disc, it getting very slow on reading (but it spin). And once it finished reading, it shows nothing inside the ROM-Drive. I only have on Optical Drive installed and it is configured as the slave drive along with my Seagate HD on the same IDE line.
I had check with the Device Manager but it shows nothing wrong with the drive. Nero also can detect the drive. However it just can't read any discs (either blank or non-blank, DVD or CD or CD-R discs). Also there is another sympton: Once I had the discs in the ROM Driver, it just getting very slow on reading the IDE driver while starting the machine. I don't know where the problem may from, either HW failure or softwere conflit?
The DVD-RW that I used is Samsung TS-H552B with the newest firmware installed as I had updated it. My OS is Windows XP with service Pack 1.
Hope this is not the sign for change a new drive...... :rolleyes:
