Hello there, A little desperate at this point after trying some things and looking on the internet for answers, I decided to sign up to your forum. I couldn't find another example of this exact problem either, by the way. So... my bios (on my Gigabyte x38-dq6 board) detects my Samsung 183L burner on the POST screen however, it just stalls when I set the bios to boot from CD-ROM. If I go through to Windows Vista, it detects the drive, installs the proper drivers and Nero DriveInfo can read all the attributes fine but when I put in a disk and click "open", it ejects and asks me to insert a disk! Theres not much more to say. It just started doing this after I changed the location of some hard disks in my box (which shouldn't have changed anything). I'm about to unplug all of my drives apart from the DVD and see how that goes. Any ideas are greatly appreciated, thanks guys.
