I just got a new cd rw from lite on and i have been having trouble ever since i put it in. I have Windows XP Pro and when I first put the drive in the computer would recognize it but would not install it correctly. I tried everything from uninstalling it and reinstalling it in the hardware manager and i also uninstalled and reinstalled the ide channel drivers and that did not work. This is about the time i figured i needed a reformat anyways so i did. This has helped a little the computer now recognizes it and it works only after the computer boots up and then i have to go into the device manager and scan for hardware changes and then it finds it and it works, but i don't want to have to do this all the time. I even went as far as to flash the rom on the cdrw to the latest firmware. HELP please.
edit: and when i go to burn it says that i can only burn at 24? in the device manager when i change the ide channel settings from pio to dma the cdrw disappears.
