I just got this Sony DRU-810A DVD burner today. I already have the Sony DRU-800A burner and that one was plug and play. It is the reason I got this other sony.
I am running W2K. I checked for all updates including Direct X 9c. I checked to see if there is a DMA mode for the burners but there is nothing in the properties.
I tried switching the settings, making one the master drive and the other the slave, then vice versa. I tried cable select on both no good. Cable select on the other still nothing.
The device manager states the device is working properly. I tried to uninstall the drive then reboot, but still it will not see any disc.
I updated the firmware from 1a to 1d.
There is a drive test at Sony's site but they say not to use it unless tech support tell you to use it. Anyone know why?
Here is the drive diagnostic site
When the computer boots up it sees the drive. I see the light blinking.
I've done all I can think to do to get this to see disc. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is?
Thank you for your time.
