Ok so I have an 832S DVD-RW drive and I installed the packaged software (nero and power DVD). I attempted to play two different DVDs, one didn’t play very well (the menu was messed up) and the other basically didn’t work. I tried in both power DVD and WMP. As a result of this I decided to get the most recent firmware to see if that would remedy the issue. I downloaded the VERY recently released VS0E frimware from…
The drive is more or less useless now and I don’t know how to fix this problem. When I stick computer CDs in often they will auto run but then if you go to istall or play a music track the drive will make the whirring noise but no lights or action. Sometimes you can get a music track to play after MUCH waiting but the result is 1 or so seconds of music and then a very long pause. If you try to ctrl-alt-delete does it nothing and the computer locks up, only ejecting the CD restores functionality.
It can read information but it can’t access any of it. I haven’t tried but I assume that I can’t copy files from a CD to the hard drive.
I need soemone that knows how to fix this problem and HOPEFULLY someone that can help me get through it without too much chaos. Thank you in advance.
P.S. I know this might end up getting moved and I understand that. I was hoping that putting it in the general forum would help more than just putting it in the Lite-On forum.
