Master LiteOn LH-20A1P slave LiteOn SHM 165H6S normaly work fine. I think the position on the cable is correct master at the end. I don't think that can be the problem as ConverXtoDVD, Nero, CloneDVD2 all work fine as does Windows Media player, WinDVD...

 

After install of ImgBurn and reboot one or both drives will not read DVD or CD when I system restore to a time before the install all returns to normal. I will set another restore point today and will try once more after waiting for a solution.

 

jmicron thread ??? (I am a MOD on CDF)

from imgburn once you open it

 

I must build up my nerve to reinstall a program that made me do a system restore twice now.

Hardly think you can blame ImgBurn for your systems obvious corruption. When was the last time you actually installed whichever operating system you are using.

 

Using system restore is hardly scientific proof and the fact system restore is being used at all speaks volumes.

I don't blame ImgBurn I would like to use the program but can't right now.

 

I installed Imgburn on my 2nd PC with no problems.

thanks for your help, But I have other programs I can use on this PC, so after the last try; I will let it pass before I crash my system; I never had a drive problem that requied me to install another drive to fix; something in my PC does not like ImgBurn; and I don't want a clean install of windows once more.

Check your computer for virus and malware , use your virus program and get spy bot search and destroy update both to latest then run.

 

No way is ImgBurn forcing you to change drives you must have a faulty couple of drives or your system is way too corrupted.

 

Operating systems should be Installed about every 6 months I choose to do it every 3 months or even sooner but I have also left them for a year and had no corruption that stopped me from running anything. Then again though I know what I am installing.

Sounds like a HW problem. Certainly not an ImgBurn "bug".

 

As donta says, check the cable and the drives.

I don't agree, it's most like a sony sonic conflict, assuming his clean installs were just putting all that crap back on his

hard drive fresh

 

messed with fixing some of those vaio's for a while, ended up wiping them and installing a clean copy of xp

 

you would have to clean the filters and the registry then install imgburn
