If I created a DVD-R with some drag to media app in XP that DVD-R might not be readable in other OSes until I install the drag to media app.
It's possible there are other issues with the drive and since there are no drivers for such things you never look for those. You might check for newer drive firmware AFTER you try another data DVD.
hi! I'm having some problems with the dvd-rom in my pc with win 7; everytime I insert a dvd it doesn't read it, xp is also installed in another partition and the dvd-rom works fine in it. The dvd-rom is a lite-on ihap122 9, the computer is an amd athlon 64 x2 dual core on a asrock alive nf6g-vsta mobo, I've been looking for a driver, but so far I haven't found one. in case it isn't clear; the dvd-rom doesn't work on windows 7 but in win xp it works with no problems at all in the same computer. Any help would be appreciated. thanks!
