I've installed this drive on XP sp2. Although the computer recognizes the drive, I can't get it to play or record cd/dvd's. The drive shows up on my computer and I can see what title DVD is in there but it won't play it. I did see a I/O Device error at one point but don't know how to fix that.

I've tried installing the latest firmware but as it's loading It says failed to move to normal mode and then closes.

Please help...

print the whole thread off so you have it there to refer to
what they are saying is to extract the file to a folder on your h/d
then open the folder and delete the file UPGR109.exe
then carry on with the instructions they give

I rebooted at this point, but it may not be necessary. Some people have reported drive recognition issues that were cured by a reboot.

After the reboot check that your drive is operating in DMA mode UDMA4 READ HERE
