Hi,

Just bought and installed a MSI 52X cd-rom. It will not play music CDs or read data. It is recognized and loaded in Windows XP, and it says device working properly. Any one have any suggestions?

Thanks

LMJ

Yes it does, but when I put in a CD, the light goes on and it spins up, but nothing.

I have the same CD-r and the same problem, windows XP did not find the drivers when it searched automatically but says the device is working properly, and I get the same results when I put a CD in, doesn't read it. I want to try the firmware linked on this thread but I have no way of telling if I have the series 1.1x or 1.2x. Apparently if you guess wrong you lose your CD-r.
