Still having problems installing above. Tried all solutions posted previously. I've connected the drive to the secondary IDE as master, with nothing else connected. The drive is recognised in BIOS and by Windows XP. When I open in explorer no files are displayed.
I've tried opening both a data cd and a DVD film in explorer, no files displayed. Power DVD message says no disk in drive. Since last post I've tried connecting with 40 - IDE cable, and 80 - ATA cable with same results. I'm beginning to think I must have a faulty drive.
I have just read 'Scarlet's' posting (6.10.03) and her problem seems very similar to mine:- I needed to replace my AopenCD RW drive after it crushed a disk (my fault for inserting badly) so opted to upgrade to an (OEM) DVD/CD reader rewriter but while it is "found" on my oepning screen under Win98SE, I can't make it accept any files. Also, any disk - CD or DVD I slip into the drive is reported as "disk full"
I have no DVD decoding software installed, as mentioned by AndySD (6.10.03) since the drive came alone and wonder if I need to download drivers, decoding stuff etc?
Grateful for any help, Brian.
