hi all,

after I formatted windows XP on my laptop (Acer Aspire 6930G), my Optiarc ad-7560S DVD writer won't write DVDs anymore (if I insert a DVD it considers it as a CD, and still won't write anything on it; CD writing goes fine, with normal Cds); I guess the problem might be the drivers or firmware, but after an hour search I still haven't found where to download them .____. any help? T________T

yep, but still to no avail (no sign of the DVD on acer's site...but I did download some other stuff lol)...after googling a bit it seems to be a problem with Optiarc DVD writers, some models of which just don't recognize certain DVD-RWs .____.'
