WH14NS40 slow to see disc

Just put a WH14NS40 in our HTPC (Biostar A75MH mobo, A8-3850 APU, 8Gb DDR3-1600, Samsung 830 128Gb SSD, Win 7 x64).
Drive doesn’t always seem to “see” a disc (so far just DVDs, retail and DVD+r). Sometimes reinserting the disc works, sometimes not but will work after I reboot HTPC. Tried with VLC, Windows Media Center and PowerDVD (paid version).

Drive at fault or …?

Sam[/QUOTE]Welcome to the forum :flower:

First guess would be buggy firmware or weak drive. One odd thing that has worked for me with my LG BD drives when they go quirky, swap the sata cable plug on the mobo to change it to the first drive(sata 0). Wouldn’t cost anything to try.
