Question about ASUS (GENEIRC DRW-1608P BLACK) (GENEIRCDRW1608PBLACK) DVD Drive
I'm having Asus DRW-1608p3s. It's not able to read DVDs i put, it shows nothing in the drive but easily reads CDs. What is the problem!!
I have a similar issue to you, except that my dvd drive will only recognize a disc if I have booted up into windows with it in the tray...once in windows it will still think it has the first disc in no matter what disc i insert. If i boot up with no disc then it will never read it unless I follow the steps below.
A solution I found by pure frustration and trying all sorts of things is to eject the DVD tray and leave it opened, then right click on the dvd drive in 'my computer' and select the 'hardware' tab...then select the drive and click 'properties'.
A new window should open. Select 'volumes' and click 'populate'. Now close the window and insert the disc you wish to read, close the tray and repeat this process. Windows should now recognize the disc you inserted
Alot of trouble I know, but it works for me. Hope this helps.
