Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello This drive has been a problem on and off since I bought it. [Though it has worked great for the past year .] It will just suddenly stop functioning, as will the software. At first the 800 FW cable that came with it would not work. I switched to the 400 FW cable and the drive worked. A few days later I bought a new 800 FW cable; reset up the software and drive, the drive was recognized with this new cable. It worked OK until this week, but the software did not. This week the drive cannot be found with the 800 FW cable installed, but after speaking with one of your Tech people, Don, I believe it was, the drive worked again with the 400 FW but not the 800 FW cable. Now I got the drive to be recognized, but the software will not work. The drive appears in the One Touch window, but the buttons do not work. Test the drive etc. I went back uninstalled [using the software and then did a manual check]. I did what you tech guy said and still nothing from the software. One Touch capability does not exist. What do I do to get the software to work?. What do I do to get the drive recognized using the 800 FW cable? I wrote down step by step what your tech told me to do, as I have before. Six hours of work to no avail!!!!! Old Incident # Using the 800 FW Cable [Incident: 061221-000101 Previous system was 10.4 at time of first incident. Dejavu under 10.5.1. Current System MAC G5 Mini Tower C. 2005 MAC OS 10.5.1 Not compatible??? 4G RAM 500 G HD, 300 G HD, Maxtor 1TB One Touch EXT Please advise. Thanks, Richard

Hi there, my advice is,

Software is a general term that refers to computer programs which are collectively stored on secondary storage media. The following presentation begins with an overview of software in general and then focuses on System Software in particular. System Software is the foundation of a computer system, so it is the logical place to start the discussion of the subject of software. This presentation ends with a concise summary of Application Software which is prerequisite to the our study of Word Processing & Desktop Publishing, Graphics, Electronic Spreadsheets, Database Management, and Telecommunications, and Integrated Applications which will be the focus of the laboratory sessions where the exercises associated with these concepts are to be performed. Software may be distributed commercial packages (purchased "off the shelf") , public domain ("freeware") minimal-cost shareware (try before you buy; buy on the honor system), or custom designed (by programmers employed by the institution using the software.

There are a few toys and devices made in China that deadshort the USB terminals. I hope you have not bought and installed one of these. I had 2 in the shop a year ago with some Dora Explorer usb toy that toasted the usb once installed. If you have bought and installed something about the same time as the usb stopped working you will need to call the company that made the device and demand they replace your motherboard.

Remove the cover and take a look at the drive gear. It is white nylon and is just in front of the motor. Most likely stripped.

My Lite On DVDRW will not recognize any audio cd's...


Hi PhxROcker,

In these drives there are two lasers and two pick-up sensors. Normally in a combined head. One set is used for the DVD and the other is used for the CD. From you description it sounds like the optical sensor for the CD laser has expired! When you place a CD into the drive a small amount of information is read by the drive that identifies the disc type, manufacturer, it's status, capacity etc. If the drive cannot read this then it thinks nothing is present.

If you insert a disc does the LED on the front the the unit flash a few times while it spins the disc. Does it do this repeatedly? If it fails to read the disc does the LED stop blinking and the drive no longer spins the disc? If this is the case then your drive may indeed be faulty.

Sorry I could not be of any further assistance.

Regards,

Spare head 2.
