I have this sleek, shiny brand new dvd burner i just can't figure out.
I'll try my best to describe the problem i'm having so here it goes.
First, The ODD is recognized and found both in bios and xp so it's atleast there
BUT when i put a disc in the tray and close it(doesn't matter what kind of disc) it just won't load, infact "My Computer" freezes and i can't do anything in that window unless i open the tray again. I read that "can't read disc but it should faq" and it suggested I should check if it were a hardware problem by booting from an disc at start so i loaded it with my xp disc and fired it up and... nothing happens. Again the computer kinda freezes all i can see is a white dot blinking in the upper left corner and nothing happens unless i again open the tray, then windows starts loading up as if nothing happened. Now can anyone tell me if there is something i can do to fix this or is the drive fubar?
I'm using a Asus A8N-VM Motherboard and i figured it might be there the problem lies.
let me know if there is a need for any other info and i'll provide it if i can and ask how to get it if i can't
