Need some help here! 2001-12-03 18:16:03 I'm sorry for posting this here, but I'm hoping there are some knowledgeable people here. I tried posting on the hardware section on the r3mix forum, but for some strange reason I'm unable to post there. First it says "Hey, kjempen, you have 0 messages." when I log in, and then, when I try to post anything, I get this message:"An Error Has Occured! To post you must be logged in if you don't have an account yet register." :confused: Oh well, back to the real problem I need help for, namely my newly-acquired DVD-ROM. I used to be able to rip music with my old DVD-ROM using programs such as Audiograbber, Exact Audio Copy etc. but lately I haven't been using it that much for ripping. So today I was going to try to rip some music with the new DVD-ROM, but alas, the drive isn't selectable from any audio ripping programs, nor from the Drive Region Info v1.1 program? I'm wondering what the hell has happened? As far as I know, I did the replacement procedure correctly (removed the old drive from Device Manager before actually replacing the DVD-ROM). Then I installed the drivers that Windows XP asked for (located on the Win XP CD-ROM). Everything seemed fine (plays DVD movies ok, reads data discs ok, & even audio discs ok) until I tried the programs mentioned above, and I am left unable to rip any music (unless, of course, I connect a CD-player to the optical line-in of my soundcard) . So I'm wondering if it could be that the drivers are messed up in some way, or perhaps the fact that I have installed Easy CD Creator not too long ago may have had some effect on the DVD-ROM's functionality? I tried to remove it, but it didn't help, still have the problem. I have also tried firmware upgrade, but that didn't help either; plus, I have also looked for drivers, but all I can find is MS-DOS drivers (don't think that's going to work with Windows XP).Please let me know if there is any solution to my problem, or if there's somewhere/someone I can turn to for help!PS! The DVD-ROM in question is a Pioneer DVD-116 (IDE)EDIT: Ok, I've solved the problem with the r3mix forum so I've posted it there too. Disregard this post/thread if no-one has valuable input on this.
