Re: Problem opening Data CDs on CD Rom and DVDRW drives
I have same issue with LiteOn 18A1P DVDRW. If i put a DATA disc in the tray
it will lock windows up and requires a restart. Taking the disc out does
nothing to free windows up. If i leave a disc in the tray and restart,
windows will not boot up all the way. Audio discs seem to have no problem
being read and also does not freeze the OS at all.
I hope there is some drivers being developed soooooon!!!
