ok. So I removed the secondary IDE channel (also switched the burner to master on it), then windows installs a new driver, well it installs then prompts me saying the driver has not passed windows testing etc. I install that and now the advanced tab is gone and I cannot check to see how the drives are running. Nero's tools says DMA is turned on though.
So I tried to burn a dvd, completed after an hour, and then it wouldn't play.
Tried burning with Nero 6.011 and DVD X Copy Xpress.
At least with Nero I can see the files I put on there and open them seperately but PowerDVD gives an error and won't play the dvd. DVD X Copy the disk isn't even recognized.
Don't know if this has anything to do with it but when I run the nero InfoTool it says the XP ASPI installation is corrupted. Even though I have reinstalled them a couple of times.
Also when I try and run the Nero CD/DVD speed tool with a regular dvd (Chicago) it gives me an error:
"Error! READ OF SCRAMBLED SECTOR WITHOUT AUTHENTIFICATION (056F03)"
This is just a mess for me so far, ugh.
