I've been having horrible trouble trying to track down any information on this drive. It's a DVD-RW drive that has no listed manufacturer yet I see other versions all over, and what's more, they all seem to be having the same or similar problems. At first it seemed like no biggie - every once in a while it wouldn't recognise a DVD disc or it couldn't play it, and a restart later everything would be back to normal. Now, when you place a DVD in the drive, 98% of the time it's as if the drive doesn't even exist all of a sudden! I have found NO support for this and driverguide's toolkit lists the drivers as MS, so as you can guess, no luck there.
Please, if there is any information on updated drivers or even a manufacturer, it would be very appreciated! I've tried emachines support (they blamed Media Player, lol) and I've done a ton of dead-ended searches on this thing and found nothing...please help!?
Thank you in advance.
