I have 2 ABIT mobos (KT7A and KT7A-raid) I use my Liteon32x without any problem.
1- I have a 80 IDE pin cable connected to the burner.
2- Use a powerful PSU , at least 300W (or better 300VA) or higher
ANTEC is a good brand of PSUs
3-DOWNLOAD the lastest BIOS version for your MOBO, which also includes a updated version for the Highpoint RAID controller, most of the problems with abit mobos (w/ RAID) are due to OLD BIOS configurations.
ABIT Mobos with RAID capabilities are HARD to config sometimes so you’ll have to do a lot of tests.
4-Take a look at:
This is the BEST page devoted to ABIT MOBOS… maybe your problem is already reported in that place.
5-If you have access to other computer , It would be useful to see if you have the lastest BIOS in your LITE-ON burner, Abit is known to have some problems with LITEON burners with older firmwares.
