Issues with dual DVD-RW drives, PLEASE HELP!
Hello, I just joined this site in my desperation to fix this issue:
Today I just added an additional DVD burner to my desktop which I built up in March. I bought a Sony DRU-810A so that I could copy DVD's straight to a blank DVD without having to lift the files to my hard drive beforehand. My other DVD-RW drive is an LG, model no. GSA-4167B.
My problem is that whenever I now insert a DVD disc into EITHER of the drives (which are daisy-chained via IDE cable, Sony as the master and the LG as the slave/secondary), my computer will suddenly restart without even showing a blue-screen-of-death. In the Windows error report, it says that the problem was caused by a "Windows Stop error", but I googled that term and found nothing particularly pertinent. It's important to note that this is only happening with DVD discs, and not regular CD-ROM's. I have inserted CD-ROM discs into both drives and everything worked normally. It's only when I insert a DVD into either drive that this involuntary force-restart occurs.
I have scoured google for updated drivers for either drive, but all I could find was a firmware updater for the Sony drive, which when I downloaded it and ran it, told me that I already had the most up-to-date firmware. Sweet. The LG drive came with no installation CD and I have had no problems of this sort with it until today when I introduced the additional Sony drive into the mix. Anyway, has anyone else had an issue like this?? This is incredibly irritating to me, especially because I bought this extra drive to do exactly what it now will not let me do. Thanks so much,
