I'm having some serious problems with a 24x10x40 pacific digital that shows up in the device manager as a BTE BCE 2410IM manufactured by Top-G
I cannot get the drive to recognize any type of CD-R discs, it will play any "store" bought music or data cd's though. But when i try to burn something it says " no disc in tray" now originally i was using a cheap cd-r so i thought ok let me whip out one of the mitui's and no way it wont even recognize theres a blank cd in the drive. Not even an already burnt 4x backup data cd i had on a mitsui that i made with my old Sony ( Which has been awesome to me over the years but is getting to be too slow at 12x )
I try to look for firmware upgrades from BTC i see none for this drive. even the ones that are there i cant seem to download the flash program anyways since the link is dead. Does anyone have a solution to this or have any idea?
I appreciate it thanks.
P.S. Sorry forgot to mention i run winxp pro sp1 with a p4 on a MSI 648MaxL, No other drives are on the ide channel with the BTC I also have tried it on an older p3 machine with the same symptoms.
I looked for firmware for this particular drive all over this forum and on the net if anyone has firmware for it can you please email me at email@example.com
or if theres any other compatible firmware??? I doubt reflashing the firmware is going to help me but thought i'd give it a shot, maybe this unit is a left over nightmare from an OC'r that was returned who knows.
