My Sony DW-U12A DVD burner does not recognize media when I insert into the drive. This includes blank media, music cd or even an actual movie DVD.
The drive is visible in the control panel. I checked the 1st and secondary channels and they are in DMA mode. I uninstalled and rebooted for the device to be recognized by XP. I checked in the bios and auto run is "1". I opened the case and made sure the cables were secure. I believe that 2.0e is the latest firmaware for this drive.
Are there any other ideas I should try. I use the drive to burn my tv series and sporting events. I also use ERUNT so I went back a few days in registry and still no luck.
There has been no noise to indicate the drive was starting to fail. I know that sometimes the drive will fail with no warning. It has been a good drive. If I have to repalce this eide drive, can someone recommend a good drive that has excellent reading capability. I am not overly concerned with burn speed, just burn quality.
I'm having the exact problem with the exact same drive ever since I installed XP SP3. Anyone have a solution to this yet? I've tried EVERYTHING that every site I could google suggested. Hope someone can help! Thanks very much!
