Since installing my Plextor DVD-RW I have had nothing but problems with the drive.
Firstly in my computer the drive is shown as
name … Type
SMARTMEDIA (E) CD Drive
In addition the drive will not read CD’s or DVDs via the autoplay function, it just sits there with the light flashing and nothing happening. IN fact My computer is frozen as unresponding.
I have run Plextools professional and it recognises the drive as the PX712A.
The drive is installed on the second IDE connection as a MASTER, as recommended in the manual. Firmware is 1.05. The BIOS setting is recognising the DMA Mode 2. My system is running on XP SP2, on a Chaintech ZNF250 motherboard (NFORCE3).
ANy help would be appreciated, as I am unsure if it is soimething I have doen wrong or the drive needs RMAing.
Thanks in advance.
