ok, i made the thread called "dvd burner issues" where i described that i bought a new dvd burner but it wont play dvd's or burn them, but it will play cd and burn cd's. it was recommended tht i take it back and get it replaced. so i took it back and the guy put the drive in a pc there, and it worked perfectly so the drive itself is fine. what else could be causing these malfunctions? i heard somewhere it could be that the drive needs more power then my power supply can offer, could this account for the malfunctions?
