|A friend gave me a bunch of computer stuff. In the box was a brand new sata hdd that was about 3x the size of my old eide drive. So I Installed the new drive, popped in my XP cd and installed a fresh os on the new hdd. Seemed everything was fine till I tried to pull some stuff off some dvds that I backed up before the new hdd. My dvdrw drive wouldn't work. It's a Liteon iHAS5324 y dvdrw. The bios would pick up on it being installed, but would list a bunch of random charachters under the pio, dma, and name. Windows detects the drive, but when I put a disk in it shows as a blank disk. I've tried different cables, ports, and another sata dvd, but with this sata hdd it just will not cooperate. I'm using an asrock 4coredual sata2 board, and the hdd is a hitachi. |
Am I missing something, or could the liteon dvdrw just gone out right after my xp install?
