Question about Computers & Internet
DVD Writer DRU 170C Works As CD ROM Only. Not Detecting any DVD. . Tried With Power DVD install. No result. Open Case Detached Primary IDE Channel, then uninstall the Secondary IDE Channel (DVD Drive Fix to it) from Device Manager. Still Not resolved.
There are 2 assemblies inside it.
One works to read/write CD media.
One works to read/write DVD media.
So, your device is "half-broken".

Sounds like you have done all you possibly can, it may well be that the drive has finally given up and a replacement is neccasary. You can try to repair the autorun .inf file, but i think a replacement. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=C680A7B6-E8FA-45C4-A171-1B389CFACDAD&displaylang=en Sorry!

mst...First, get your manual out. the drive must be set to be a secondary device unless it is not. You say you have only one IDE...did you remove the CDR? If you have a second IDE or other board connector, then this drive is primary on that. Now, did you install the drivers for the unit? You can use your CDR to do that or get them from the website of the manufacturer. Are there any bent pins on either the motherboard or the back of your drive? Somewhere in there is an answer.
If you have only one drive connector set, you can get a board which will allow you to setup additional drives. Ask your dealer.
