Hi, I actually bought this dvd writer a year back and not really used it… but when I started using it … ie. recntly… I found that i can’t read dual layer discs ie. 8.5 GB one… but was doing fine with 4.7 discs.
Now 2-3 days back… it is now not reading any DVDs but only CDs … and that too sometimes takes a long time.
I am actually following related posts on this forum from a month… still no gain.
What I have done is…
- Updated to latest firmware available for this drive ie. PYS3
- Replaced 40pin cable with 80pin
- Cleaned lense manually
- Updated Motherboard’s chipset driver to latest available.
- Even swapped drives ie. master , slave… alone … etc.
- Tried in different computers
One more thing to add… I think it is writing DVDs perfectly as yesterday I made a DVD using this drive and was working fine on other computer .
Somwhere in forum I read that it may be due to DRM or rootkit stuff… but I do not exactly understood what is all about… Googling does not gave clear Idea…
So kindly suggest… …
Should I buy new one or it can be used ?
