I have a DDU1621 Dvd rom set as slave. My master drive is a LG DVD+/-RW which works fine.
However, when I try to read CD roms in the sony ddu 1621 drive here’s what happens:
It starts to spin and the green light turns on (doesn’t blink/flash). To me, this is weird (that it doesn’t blink).
It spins for a minute or two then stops and it’s as if there is no cd in the drive.
Read DVDs fine.
I’m using Windows XP Sp1.
Obviously, it has a problems recognizing CDs . What perplexes me is that this is a relatively new problem because when it was new, I had no problem reading CD (games, software, music, etc…) in the Sony DDU1621 drive.
In case you might wonder, I have not messed around with the firmware and I don’t feel competent enough to do so.
So I come here for your educated opinions on what the problem might be and how I could solve it. This is last resort because if this fails, I’m just going to ditch the dvd rom and get a cd-rw writer on sale for 30 bucks
Hoping and waiting I thank you very much for your time and patience for dealing with a noob such as I.
