ok sniper here goes.....
First power down pc
next unplug ide connector and power from burner.
then jumper pins 4 and 6 on the 3 pin array .
(As you look at the pins on the back of the burner
first 2 on the left are cs the next two are master ,and the next two are slave.You have to jumper the bottom 2pins on the right hand side,as you look at them.)Hope thats plain enough.
next plug power back in and insert an audio cd,the drive should recognize it.power down,put jumper back where it was originally(Master or slave)plug ide back in,reboot.........Thats it!
This worked for me ,hope it works for you.....
My burner is a 16x10x40,but this fix works with a 24x10x40 too..
