OK, I am using the Asus PC Probe to monitor my voltages. I am getting fluctuations 12.15 to 12.22v, 5.08 to 5.053v, 3.376 to 3.4v and 1.584 to 1.536v but they all seem to be over the 12, 5, 3.3 & 1.5v ranges.
I started ripping a movie, and 1/3 the way through, a dialog box came up that said that the device was unavailable. I check "My Computer" and sure enough the Sony DVD burner was no longer listed, my other CD-RW and DVD drives were though.
So if I buy another drive will the problem go away, or will it come back because I don't have enough power?
How can I try the Sony thing when my WinXP doesn't even recognize my DVD burner (I have to reboot to get it back) Is this a drive problem, power problem or WinXP problem?
