Strange problem with GSA 4163B A105

I got my DVD-RAM about a month ago, never used it, until last week and noticed it wasnt working.
I got 2 DVD, a normal one and the multi DVD-RAM.

When they are both connected, i can see them both.
When i put a CD or a DVD into the DVD-RAM the icon changes to CD-ROM and gives me an error about I/O. (only when they are both plugged).
But when its alone, its working like a charm.

I tryed some stuff…and nothing yet:

1st- I plugged only one of them and they both worked fine alone.
2n- I checked the jumpers, they r fine, DVD-RAM is master other is slave
3- I Updated firmware to A105
4- I installed the DVD-RAM Drivers and the updater
5- I tryed another IDE cable

It only happens when they are both connected, the DVD-RAM just stops working.

My PC is :
A8V-e DLX
athlon64 3000+
EN6600GT-TOP
1024 (2x512) kingston ram
HL-DT-ST GSA 4163B A105
normal DVD rom
WDC 120gig HDD

There was a bug in nero 6.0.0.15 with two drives. After I upgraded to 6.6.0.16, I had no more problems. My DVD rom is now connected.

it wasnt in nero, everywhere. but anyways i realised i dont even need 2 drives anyways. :stuck_out_tongue:


#7

actually its good to have both dvd-rom & dvd burner so youll use the burner only to burn and the dvd-rom for playing cd/dvds and ripping , the burner will likely last longer that way

Hi,

I have had this problem for a while now and my HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B will not read disks. It says the driver is missing or corupted (code 39). I have been to device manager and it is there but with a exclaimation mark next to it. I have also tried to update the driver but after I download the update it can’t find my previous driver to update it.

Also do you think Limewire couldv’e done something to it.
