Hello there guys.

Here’s another hardware mystery that I want to discuss with you (if only I believe in ghosts I could have an alibi, but no, I don’t). I have a Lite-on internal DVDRW SOHW - 1673S which I transferred from the PC x into another PC y. it doesn’t have problem with PC x (running windows XP professional—no SP2). But when I transferred the writer-drive into PC y (windows XP professional with SP2), it will just recognize as if there it is present but cannot read any media. I have already installed the latest firmware SOD for this drive. I tried to run CD-DVD Speed from Nero 7 Premium but it doesn’t a Disc Info value.

Maybe you guys are better learned than me and help me figure out how to resolve this one. Thanx in advance.

I'm interested in the solution myself. I have one computer with nearly the identical problem.

Actually Master ATNO, my original prognosis is wrong. it actually reads DVDs but not CDs. im still figuring out how to solve this mystery.

I have already posted a new thread with the revised heading....
