DVD not recognised/IDE channel is not working

About a year ago my LG DVD-RW didn't appear in My Computer, restarting the computer solved the problem and I happily forgot about it..... then about 6 month ago same thing happened, restarting didn’t help, drive wasn’t recognised by BIOS, so I went inside the computer and after moving the jumper and reconnecting the IDE cable drive started working again.
Last week, the DVD-drive disappeared from My Computer and BIOS once again, and now i can’t get it back at all. I know for the fact that the actual drive is working, I connected it to a different computer and works perfect, also I tried connecting a different DVD-drive to my computer and it won’t show up. I tried changing the IDE cable and connecting it as Master/Slave but nothing is helping. Also I only have one IDE channel on my motherboard, hdd is connected through SATA.
Is this the sign that something is wrong with the motherboard? Could an IDE channel be dead?
Also other problem, maybe its related to the above somehow
From the very first day when i put up my pc together over 2 years ago, the USB’s weren’t working right. There are 4 USB connectors on the motherboard and only every second one works (second and fourth). The first and third are only working as USB 1.1 very slow. Also when connecting 2 front USB’s to the motherboard again only second one works. Could this again indicate that something is wrong with the motherboard?

Anyway all I am concerned about at the moment is to have an optical drive on my pc as i can survive with 3 USB’s.

Is there any way to check the functionality of my IDE channel, maybe some program. Or any other suggestions on how to fix this?
Thanks
PS. Also why do I have a 3.5 floppy in My Computer, even though I have never had it connected in my PC?

Dvd rw is not detected in windows xp in my toshiba a75 laptop


Hi,

Kindly follow the following steps..

1. Go to Device manager. Click on the + sign beside IDE drives. Right click on the dvd drive and select uninstall. Restart the computer. It should get installed automatically as it is a generic driver.

2. Go to run > type regedit > go to the following key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\
Select the folder that says ( 4D36E965.....
on the right hand side delete the file that says "Upper filters" and "Lower filters"

3. Go to device manager > click on the + sign beside IDE ATA ATAPI Controllers > right click on Secondary IDE channel and select uninstall. Do the same with Primary IDE channel. Restart the computer.

4. Reseat the dvd drive.

Hops this helps..
Regards,
Anup

Dru-190a sony it takes 50-60 min to write


Just right click on my computer, go to properties> hardware> device manager> IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers. there u will find several primary and secondary IDE Channels. Right click on first IDE channel and goto properties> Advanced settings, change transfer mode to "DMA if Available". Repeat it with all the channels. If problem still persists then uninstall the channel containing ur DVD Writer and restart your computer. It will detect new hardware as DVD Writer. Now if it is showing the transfer mode "DMA if Available" by default then your problem is solved.

DVD RW Drive


Vista sucks. However, delete your drive and change the IDE cable. Also, put the drive onto another IDE channel so it re-initializes your drive - winodws data bases a drive when it has more than 5 DMA errors and clocks its speed down to PIO - very slow

DVD+RW & +R DL


In order to upgrade the firmware the LG drive MUST be on it's own IDE channel and 60 conductor cable and be set as master.
___________________________________________
Quoted from the LG support firmware file download:

Critical Instructions: (to be followed carefully)
1. Connect the drive as master by it self, on the secondary IDE controller with no other device on the same IDE cable, making note to set the jumper on the back of the drive to the master position.
___________________________________________

To check this open the computer case.

DVD BURNER DISAPPERS FROM "MY COMPUTER"


You can try using the ide cable connector that the other drive is on and swap them round just to illiminate the cable connector, but at the end of the day i think your DVD burner is faulty and requires replacing, as they are very innexpensive to replace as you wili probably know,so don't waste too much time trying to solve it. The drives dont last as long as they used to because, keeping the price of burners down, like anything else means cutting corners and costs and in burners cases as was the case with PS2's the lasers are cheap and soon fail.
