I'm at my wits end here.... trying to diagnose a problem with a friend's computer. Basically, cd burners will no longer burn a cd in his computer (they used to). At first I thought it was drive (sony) so I replaced it with one from one of my systems (an LG writer) known to work.... nothing. Yet it will read a disk just fine. I've also tried different software (nero, roxio, music match, etc).
I switched it to another IDE channel - nothing.
I've made sure that DMA is enabled.
Properties for the drive are set to allow it to record.
I've reinstalled the drivers, i've also uninstalled and reinstalled the IDE primary & secondary drivers
not sure if it matters, but it's an MSI KT3 Ultra motherboard and an AMD Athlon processor.
anyone every have a problem like this before? any ideas?
