I've checked through previous discussion threads, and have been unable to find anything similar. I have a brand new Mutlivision Ionix xp-2200 (and yes, I do know how useless their customer service is!) in which the ?Divio? cd-rw cdr6s52 has ceased to work. I have reloaded the drivers and re-set the pc back to factory spec, but no joy. On inserting a cd a small cd icon appears (and then disappears) next to the mouse cursor, but nothing happens. The pc recognises the drive, and 'Troubleshooter' states everything is working ok . . . There must be someway to kick-start this thing! (It seemed to stop working when I first tried burning some mp3's)
Try a different brand I had a similar problem with a LiteOn cdrw drive and it only seems to work properly with sony cdr's, I had to throw out nearly half a spindle of Imation cdr's as the drive would not recognise that there was a disk in the drive.
I will probably have to return it, but that seems a bit daft if there is something I am missing or may have messed up. Just seems a bit strange that it was working OK, but now isn't . . . It's almost as if it is about to run, but something is preventing it?
No offense taken! I read it as it was intended. I had already thought of it 'though and have tried everything I've got in it (including the kitchen sink).
To anybody else reading this - any ideas? It was OK, nice and quick and spinning along nicely, then next time . . . nothing. It's still there, I don't believe I've altered any settings - any killer downloads out there that can sort this sort of stuff out?
I might just have to muck about afterall . . . It will cost me more to return the whole pc (yes, the whole pc!) to them under their RTB warranty, than it would for me to buy a new drive and fit it myself - though that might invalidate the rest of the warranty it wouldn't take a minimum of two weeks to do.
