Hi all, this is my first post, so I hope I’m asking this in the correct forum.
I built my PC with 2 Optiarc AD-7170A’s last year and I broke one (unfortunate incident with the drive tray). I replaced it with a Lite-On LH-20A1P - which seemed to do nothing by make coasters out of +R DL discs. So, I replaced that one with another AD-7170A. But, when I installed the new 7170, the model number came up as 7190A … and it’s making coasters.
From reading other posts in the forum, it seems that the 7190 is a Lite-On clone. Actually, a clone of the Lite-On drive I tried before replacing it with the new Optiarc.
I’ve burned hundreds of DL DVD’s with my original AD-7170 and never had even 1 failure.
Does anyone know a magic-fix for either the 7190 or the LiteOn 20A1P?
