I got the 7240S now and ripping music with EAC works great, and playing music CDs with foobar2000 also works, but windows seems to have problems with it. If I insert a CD the dvd writer icon in windows notices that there is a "CD-ROM" in it, but if I try to open it it just ejects and says insert disc. It's the same for all kinds of discs, music CDs, data CDs, DVDs. Could it be some issue with Windows 7 RC I'm using?
Edit: It has the latest firmware 1.03.
Edit 2: Seems it works sometimes after a reboot. So some boots it just won't work and other times it does.
