Been using my Liteon SHM-165H6S for over a year. Last week after a good burn the disk contents would not display. Tried to burn another new compilation and Nero cannot find the burner. My Computer shows the burner but it is listed as that last disk that was burned correctly.
So–I installed another Liteon Burner and the same thing happened. One good burn and then the above symptoms. Going to Device Manager, no yellow flags, and the burner reported as working properly.
I took the first driver apart, cleaned the lens and reinstalled. Burned one disk just like above.
So==I put in a third Liteon Burner, got the same results, one good burn, then nothing.
Oh–between #2 and #3 installs, I did use a new ide cable on a separate channel to remove those issues.
Any ideas? Thanks.
