Px 712a not reading cds



reading, writing dvds just fine, but will not accept a cdr.

i just had to reboot winxp, put a new version on with all the updates, and i am convinced this is where my problem occurred.

upgraded the firmware to 1.07, but no luck (not surprised)

plextools shows all is well.

any suggestions?



you reinstalled win over a previous instalation? this is not recomended. please make a clean install, then your problems should dissapear.


Super clean installation, brand new. Formatted my hdd drive and all. I did leave one small partition intact which i believe houses my Compaqs drivers.

Could you comment on what exactly is conflicting, or why the drive is not reading cds in particular?
