I have a V7 with a Magic 3.1 in it that someone has brought back. Browser comes on. When I put in a disc it just continuosly spins and stays on browser. It seems to distinguish the difference between the DVD and CD discs by the different sound it makes on read. Thinking it was the laser I switched the laser with another working V7 I have here and the same thing occurs. That leads me to beleive it is the mainboard. Any ideas of what to start looking at?
and before all you Magic haters say it is cause it is a Magic chip I have installed 100+ 3.1's w/out problem.
Probably look at the CDVD Drive Daughterboard or the BA chips, but I would first try switching the drive altogether before making any conclusions..
well you have a problem with that magic chip now.
I did switch the drive. Made no difference
