840e not being recognised...

Postby paulmarshall on Tue May 09, 2006 6:26 am

Hi,

A while ago I bought an 840e USB dvd drive (which I'm starting to regret). I was having some issues with the lightscribe, so i flashed with the 4166 firmware (v1.2 i think) which solved that problem. Now I have problems with it being recognised by my laptop, i generally get the error messages that it isn't recognised, or that it could perform faster. Any clues why this might be?

Thanks!

Paul.
