When I was running the alienautopsy checkup, it says everything passed except the DVD-RW Drive - Matshita DVD+-RW UJ8A7 in which it says not supported for the DRAM Test, Flash Rom test, and Main IC test.

Can someone tell me what this means?

Sounds like it is doing a memory test on the drive, and failing. Which I can completely understand, as it is nothing other than a disc player.

Here is an extract off a comment from another Alienware user.

------

The deal is that the test tries to run a disc and see if it works. Same with the PSA, you normally get errors due to this. It could be also a compatibility issue between the Autopsy and the drive but nothing to be worried about if the drive itself is working properly.
