After reading much on this problem from earlier posts i have updated the firmware, and now even the bios. My motherboard is Asus p4bgv-mx.
This drive doesn't read dvds on random basis. some dvds are read on it and some aren't.
Even dvds written by this drive aren't recognised on it after i updated the bios.
What more can I do?
One more thing, when i tried to install opensuse 10.3 from this dirve and it did start the boot manager and started installation fine, but suddenly it says it cant find software repository. and this is for all dvds of suse.
I even tried to connect a same drive of my friend to my pc, but that too has same problem.
WHAT SHOULD I DO? PLEASE HELP ME:sad:
