I’ve just built a new PC based around an Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus m/b, including SATA Samsung HDD, Dual core 6600. Running Windows XP.
I replaced my old cd writer and dvd player with a Samsung SH-S183A SATA drive and can play Audio CDs fine - just when I put any other cds in I get problems.
First of all autorun doesn’t work. Secondly when I do get onto the CD, it takes an age to load up the application/s. I’m trying to just load up the DVD writer software that came with the drive, i.e. Nero. After about 1-2 minutes, the install screen appears - then selecting anything from there slows the PC down to a crawl, however the HDD lights and DVD writer lights are flashing away constantly.
Has anyone got any ideas what to do here? I’ve installed the firmware update tool and I have the latest version already.
