I've had my XP machine for about 3 years and for the most part I could burn just fine, but a few months ago (Sept/Oct 06) it just stopped working, eg.CDs will burn but often some songs are just static/noise while others are fine. DVDs the video is great but the sound drops in & out & then finally disappears altogether.
The device manager always said that I had an Optorite DD0401, however after I tried different media, unistalling, reinstalling, upgrade the drivers, checked the connections and finally took it out to clean it I discovered it was actually a Sony DRU830A. So I thought that the drive might just be shot. So I bought a new one. I uninstalled the drive again, cleaned out all refenences to Optorite in the registry and even uninstalled Nero & CDBurnerXP Pro thinking that I'd start fresh.
No luck.
Same things with the new one. It still is read by the computer as an Optorite and I can't tell it otherwise, plus it still won't burn anything.
I've repaired or upgraded many machines and while not an expert I'm comfortable working on them however I'm really stuck. I've got stuff that I want to burn & watch blast it!

And...onto the boring stuff:

WindowsXP SP2 (Everything up to date)
Athlon Athlon 64 3200+
Gigabyte GA-K8VT800
1.5GB RAM
nVidia GeForce FX 5600XT 256MB
Avast! Anitvirus
