i have a new Dell Inspiron 5160 notebook with a Phillips CDD 5263 UD91 [D] (Ide) cd-rw/dvd-rom drive.
It reads all official software discs, but only SOME pre-copied software discs (backups made with Nero) and disk copies made by friends with freeware on it.
Has anyone any suggestions as to how to enable this drive to read all disks.
Are there anti-piracy/software authentication settings that need to been changed with the OS to do this or should I update the firmware.
If so, do you know where I can locate firmware for this particular drive, its a bit of a difficult one to locate!
I am running XP Home with SP2 & have installed WMP10 & have disabled the "aquire software licenses" tab in the setup....to no avail!
