    When ever I use blind write software it will show 1% read for around 5 minutes. Then it says my hardware has changed and my cd-rom gets removed from device manager and will no longer work. I can't even open the cd-rom drive.

    I have to shut the computer off and manualy get the cd out. This program works fine on my other computer and I am not doing anything differently.

    I have upgraded my firmware to the latest verison for my cd-rom and cdr. I have an lg GCR-8523B cd-rom and a lg GCC-4520B CD-RW DVD ROM. Can I do anything else to get this program working or is it never going to work with my cdrom?

    Through device manager I have set my secondary ide channel advanced settings to dma if available for both boxes.

    I have an asus P4C-800 E-Deluxe mother board. I have just purchased this system so, I belive the chipset is up to date but not sure.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hmm, try updating the software, Also, update the driver for it.

    It sounds like a very odd problem. Do you have an Antivirus? If not, go to www.grisoft.com and downlaod the free edition of AVG. Update the database, and scan for viruses. It may not help, but you never know.

    Yah, I have virus scan, I disable it when burning. My system is almost brand new. I have the latest version of blind write, I just downloaded it. I also, already downloaded the latest version of firmware for both cd-rom drives. I'm not sure what the problem is because it works fine on my other system that I am selling, but not on my new system.

    Try totally uninstalling the CD drive from the system (in device manager) and reinstalling the drivers. You could have a problem with a corrupted driver, and the fresh one did not help

    Also make sure the data cables are securly plugged into the mobo and back of the drive, aand also the power connectors.

    Good luck!

    Everytime the cd-rom crashes it is removed from the device manager then added back in once I turn my computer back on. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks
