my DVD-RW stopped recognizing discs but it still shown on my computer and bios page i tried to change the IDE cable 3 times. i downloaded the latest firmware from asus website and the dvd rw started to recognize some of my DVDs only and the rest of my DVDs didn't work. i tried them on anothe DVD-rom and they worked fine
the problem is with DVDs only not CDs.
i made speedtest with nero , it was very slow with the working DVDs about 17x
i changed my operating system many times between XP 32bit - XP 64bit - windows server 2003
i don't know what is the problem .... any suggestions ..
