Hello all. i have recently done a clean install of Win 7 Pro 32 from vista on my Asus M51VA laptop.
i have searched numerous threads for what seems like an eternity without success. i contacted Asus Tech Support who advised to try a couple of things including upgrading my firm ware (Was and is Ver RR09) and MS K/base 975270. i have also done the MS K/base 314060 all to no avail.
The frustration is i can burn CD's but only from WMplayer. Nero doesn’t work for DVD's or CD's nor does explorer.
one other thing to note is when i select properties on this drive i dont get the "Tools" or "Recording" tabs
All was fine with Vista but now.........
i have included some sysinfo if that helps.
