    Hello, i am having problems with my aopen drive. It is able to read media that is on any regular cdr but is unable to read dvd's of any kind.

    ive tried updating and downgrading the firmware, ive tried to uninstall and reinstall the aspi layer and ive also tried remopving the device and reinstalling it.

    Does anybody have any ideas??

    oh by the way when i insert a dvd i just get a "there is no disc in the disc drive message"

    thanks

    It may help to unistall the device through Windows. Try this:

    Go to Device Manager >

    Expand the tree for DVD/CD ROM Drives >

    Find the drive in question, right click it and go to Properties >

    Under the Driver tab, select Uninstall then OK.

    Now reboot and Windows should detect and reinstall the drive.

    If this doesn't help try the same steps as above except expand the tree for IDE ATA/ATA Controllers and uninstall either the Primary or Secondary controller depending on which one the drive in question is attatched to. Nero Info Tool can tell you which chain the drive is on under the Configuration tab.
