hey guys,

Recently I have successfully installed Mac OS on my pc with everything working! :thumbup: :headbang: but yesterday 1 oct. My TSST-Corp DVD stopped working...
when I put a DVD in the drive it won't be recognized by the OS.
but, it worked just fine before! no problems with it...

the drive isn't dead because I can hear it spinning when I insert a DVD/CD.
Does anyone know how to solve this prob?
thanks in advance.

What version of OSX? Are you using a patched kernel? Are you running in safe mode (-x)? Can you put an 'official' audio CD into the drive, is it recognized?

Is it recognized in any other OS?

Cheers

the version of OS is 10.6.4. latest updates installed,
yeah I'm using a patched kernel, (chameleon), no I'm not running in safe mode,
no, yeah I can open the cd drive, but it won't recognize it.
I don't know if it works with a other OS because OSX is the only OS on my PC.

grtz.
