    Hi

    I purchased Sony DW-U10A (OEM model) drive, plugged it in alongside DVD ROM drive and everything worked fine day 1, I was a very happy man.

    However, the fateful day arrived when I needed to do a hard disk rebuild. Formatted & reinstalled XP Pro + SP1, Nero 5.5.10.28, PowerDVD & 2417 Patch.

    Drive stubbornly refused to work thereafterr. It will dir contents and can open text files, but will not play DVD, run executables or burn correctly.

    Trawled through these message boards and tried most the suggestions, including firmware flash to 500A 2.0f.

    Still no luck - persistent problems, and I'm now tearing my hair out.

    If any guru out there can assist I would MASSIVELY appreciate it. Full diagnostics of my machine (used Nero InfoTool) are below.

    Many thanks,
    Gareth.

    I'd recommend as first try to get the latest drivers for the IDE controller of your mainboard, not to use the one supplied in standard by XP.

    Also, have a look at http://sony.storagesupport.com/winxp.htm

    Hope this helps.
