Did you do this?


Ok... I have a philips cd burner. I recently upgraded and bought a new computer. I pulled the cd burner out of my old one, it worked fine in there with windows xp drivers. When I installed it in my new one, it works fine as a cd rom, but not as a cd rw. It has ALWAYS been a cdrw, and has never had a problem.

I have tried reinstalling drivers sevaral times, removing from the system, even flashing the cd burner itself. All of these I have tried, and still no success. As I said, I am computer savvy.

I have heard that Serial ATA drives cause confilcts with cd burners for some reason. I have checked jumpers (cd burner is slave, dvd rom is master. tried swapping positions, no luck.) I have checked connections, power, etc.

CD burner is still not working. Works fine in my mom's computer. Which is just a regular ide hard drive.

I also have a philips cd burner make sure that your remove all software that has to do with the burner and then reinstall the drivers again your software for your burner should be easy cd creator 4 by adaptec.
