My LiteOn 832S has recently started behaving strange.
Windows recognizes it without problems, and the device manager tells me “this device is working properly” (ahem…)
Also, yesterday I updated the firmware to VS0M (it had VS0E before that). Again the drive was properly recognized by the flash program, and updated.
However, no matter what CD/DVD I insert, it never shows up. It will spin for a while, then simply stop. When I manually open an explorer window for the drive I either get an empty window, or “please insert a disk in drive…”.
I checked all IDE cables, replaced them, even blew the dust out of the drive - didn’t help…
All help / advice / tips are welcome!
