I just purchased the drive and I plugged it in, and windows XP SP 2 installed it all OK. I noticed the drive on windows explorer, and software such as imgburn notices the drive.
Following was taken from the properties in drive management:
I have tried inserting blank CDR/DVDR, factory pressed CDs, burnt DVDr etc, and still the drive cannot read anything. It just flashes green for one minute, and then the light goes off and does nothing.
Its my first time with an external drive and I'm wondering if there is anything I need to install, or change?
