I recently upgraded to a new mobo (Asus A7V8X) and WinXP and added a burner, the LTR-48125W (48X/12X/48X). However, the Nero (220.127.116.11) media check reports the CD-Rs as "write protected" with 0 MB capacity.
It seems to be a driver issue: the winxpcdr utility reports a IMAPI_E_DEVICE_INVALIDTYPE as "Media Type" I already tried disabling the IMAPI service and/or disabling the Recording option in the burner's properties, to no avail.
On a related note, I can't seem to upgrade the firmware from VS04 to VS0b: the flash utility from the Lite-On website gives this error: "Read Buffer > 04 08 03. 02, 0000"
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
