Okay i have a friend (honest its not me i have the 24103s) he bought a 24102b locally in november of last year and has been happy as larry burning..
now yesterday i went to install a DVD proggy (WinDVD) on his system i installed through his CD-RW without any problems..
went home and a few hours later i had to go round as he couldn't 'backup' some cds...
Nero says "Insert Original Media" so i insert the media i am going to copy (tried any cd that had data on, but the tray just ejected the lot).
Read from the Liteon DVD 16x 48x drive got to 100% and inserted the blank CD-R into the Liteon CD-RW..
5mins later no light came on
WTF has this guy done??
He cant really have a virus as he doesnt have net access at home and most things are scanned anyway, i cannot get the CD-RW to read ANY cds (gonna try the Cd-RW in another comp tonight) can anyone suggest something? other than buying a new one as he lost the reciept might flash firmware but this might not help....
Think i don't get is its been working fine alongside the liteon DVD drive for months!
anyone heard of this happening?? a drive cant just die like that can it?
the BIOS detects it on startup too
CD-RW (2nd Master)
DVD (2nd Slave)
