What's the jumper set at? If it's CSEL, try manually setting master or slave. And if it's master or slave, try CSEL. And try removing all other IDE devices and only putting the optical drive as master or CSEL on the primary IDE channel. If that doesn't work, try secondary. Other than that, I dunno, I doubt bios flashing or anything would help unless there's a bios update specifically for problems like this.
It's set at CS, i took the other drive out the eqaution altogether this time, and when i switched back on the PC brought up the "New Hardware recognised" bubble in the toolbar for the drive i put in.
Whatever i do i still get the same "Cannot complete CD wring wizard" with the error.
"There was an error in the writing process, the disk you attempted to write may no longer be useable"
The disks are fine as is the drive, i don't get it?
I really need a solution tonight as my GPU is coming tommorow and my build is finished, but it won't have net access as i don't have a install disc or Vista drivers. I need this POS PC to at least copy drivers and such to install on my new gaming rig.
