I installed a Lite-On LDW-411S Combo Burner with a Pinnacle Studio AV/DV video editing package that included Cyberlink PowerDVD XP ver 4.0 and Sonic MyDVD. I can play & burn audio CD’s fine but can’t play or burn DVD’s.
I have the Burner connected as Master on the secondary IDE channel. In Device Manager it shows up as a SCSI Cdrom Device located at Bus Number 0, Target ID 1, LUN 0 using driver cdrom.sys.
I have an EPOX 8K3A+ motherboard with an Athlon XP 1800, Windows XP Home, 1G RAM, onboard Raid 0 with two 40G drives for video storage. The OS and misc files are on a 40G drive on the Primary IDE channel.
Smartburn and InfoTool from LiteOn find the burner OK so maybe it doesn’t matter that Device manager thinks it’s a SCSI device.
I tried to access the burner using LtnFW, Mktflash & MktWinFlash and they all locked up my machine, requiring the Power Off button to restart.
Is there some way to tell Device Manager this is an IDE drive?
Do you think this is related to why I can’t read a DVD?
