  2. Double check and reseat all connections.
    Verify the jumper settings are correct on all devices on the same channel as
    DVD drive.
    What does ASUS say about Vista compatibility?

    What does device manager show for the drive. I had 2 drives that
    disappeared one day. The device manager showed a yellow (gold) circle next
    to them. They worked fine in XP, so it had to be something with the Vista
    install. It turned out the Upper Filter Lower Filter fix solved the problem
    and the drives were visible again. Some other piece of software must have
    put those entries in the registry.

    and other programs just Vista does not work???????????????

    I'm having the same issue will all 3 of my burners. 2 are Plextors and 1 is
    an NEC/Sony. Ashampoo works as advertised but burning within Vista does not.
    I'm always told my blank media needs formatting but can't be formatted.

    The problem is with the driver for the JMicro IDE controller.

    Out of the box, Vista uses a standard microsoft driver for the JM36x
    IDE controller and all works fine. A few weeks ago, JMicro released a
    driver that came through auto updates - this driver is screwy and
    causes your dvd burner to no longer be seen as a burner by windows.

    Go to Device Manager, and look at the properties for your JM36x IDE
    controller. You need to roll this back to the generic microsoft one.
    You should be able to click "Rollback Driver" on the properties screen.
