Hi. I recently purchased a new dvd rw for my computer. The system recognized the drive and installed it without incident. The drive will not read anything I put into it. It will spin for a while and then decide there really isn't anything in there. I have tried two different drives and both exhibit the same problem. My old dvdrom drive works fine. I have tried putting the drive on both of my ide spaces, I tried installing it as master, slave and cable select. I tried installing it without the other drive, I tried a different ribbon cable. I tried the firmware updates for the drive. I believe I am out of ideas.
I have an ecs nforce4m-a v. 3 motherboard, amd 3200+ cpu, 2GB RAM. I have a dual boot set up with Vista Ultimate 32 bit and XP Pro.
I would appreciate any advice you could give me on how to get this drive to work. Thank you.
