We just bought a new machine which came with a Sony DW-Q30A drive. Everything seemed to work fine at first, Windows XP was installed using the drive, as well as all other software on the machine. Eventually installed Cyberlink PowerDVD 5 to play DVD’s. First few DVD’s played fine, until we tried “Kill Bill Volume 2”. Once the DVD is inserted the light on the DVD player flashes continuously. If Media Player or Cyberlink is open before the cd is inserted then this application will freeze until the CD is ejected.
Subsequently we tried about 30-40 DVD’s and the drive plays about 50% of the DVD’s. All the DVD’s are region 2 and they do play in our two other machines.
I then had the supplier send me another DW-Q30A. Installed it as a slave to the first drive and it does exactly the same thing. I took both the DW-Q30A’s and installed one each in our two other machines and still having no luck at all.
Does anyone have any idea ???
