Also, recheck the connections to the drives, both power and ide or sata.

Is it possible to update the firmware of the HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22LS30 for use with double layered discs?

Install the latest chipset and sata drivers for your motherboard before you hook the sata DVD rom. Try hooking the DVD drive to another sata port, the HDD should be on SATA 1.

Make sure you've installed all the latest critical updates from Windows update. There's no chipset drivers available from Asus which means that the chipset should be supported by XP. Else the chipset in charge of the SATA controller is the SIS 964 chipset and you can find IDE and SATA drivers here : Can't hurt to give them a try but start with Windows update.

Refer to the motherboard manual to clear the BIOS settings (clear the RTC RAM in the manual).

What's the exact model of the hard drive and of the DVD drive ? Go to start => run and type devmgmt.msc. Expand disk drives and CD/DVD drives to find the model ID's.

While you're in the device manager check that there's no tagged device in the list (with a yellow or red icon).

Close all open programs

Asus e818a3t is recognized as a DVD-ROM only. I can no longer write CDs after my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit install. Windows says the driver is installed and everything is working properly. Obviously not!

Hello there,

Try this trick,

1. Go to Hardware Profile and Remove your Asus ROM profile.
2. Shutdown your Machine -
3. Remove the Asus ROM from your Sata Connector.
4. Turn your Computer ON without that ROM
5. Shutdown it again, and Reconnect your ROM to those Sata connectors
6. Comment back here if still not working. :)

Just installed new HP dvd1270i. PC boots but

Check your power connector to the DVD Rom and also check the cables (Sata or IDE). If this doesn't bring any solution, scan your system using updated anti virus. Good luck.

How do you replace proprerly a CD/DVD Drive?

HI there

I belive what you have done is ccaused a conflict on the ide channel that the dvd is on you should check the jumpers on the back of your new device and match it with the setting from your old cd.

you have three options master , slave . or cable select (cs) you can only have one master or one slave on each ribbon cable .

by what you are saying the second device on that channel must be a hard disk if you dont have your old cd drive check what the hdd is set on ie master then set your dvd to the oposite ie slave .

if your hdd is set to (cs) then also set your dvd to (cs)

this should get you going

HP CD/DVD optical drive is not recognized

I found that there was a firmware conflict caused by the installation of iTUNES. I uninstalled and cleared the upper and lower filters in the registry and the internal DVD-Rom is recognized. First I cleared the registry and the drive was recognized after a hard boot. So Far no twitches. Knock on wood.
