i brought a lite on 52x24x52 CDRW yesterday and attempted to install it to my pc, however the bios on my system repeatly fails to find the CDRW regardless of how i connect to a IDE cable (i.e. master, slave, IDE 1, IDE 2). A orange LED stays continously on the CDRW from power up and it refuses to open or close, any idea's anyone. (could it be firmware damage??)

My PC is AMD 2000+ xp, elite K7S5A mobo, 192 SDRAM, 80 gig seagate barracuda 4 drive, and a compaq DVD-ROM.

Any idea's r welcome, thanks.

kane_2002k If as you say, you have checked all possible connections of cable, have you checked the rear of the drive itself and altered the jumper as required?

If you have and it still does not work, then it does indeed sound faulty and needs to be exchanged. The lite-on range of drives are excellent quality and good value for money. J.
