This is my first post
I wonder if anyone knows there is a way to make my LiteOn 451s by pass any disc load-up test when a DVD/CD is inserted into the drive, so that I can erase/burn straight ahead. The reason for finding this is described below.
I have my LiteOn 451s inside a Freecom Classic USB External enclosure (rebranded). I tried all available firmwares (Freecom's LiteOn's for 451, those crossflashing for 451@851, 451@832), but none of them solve my problem.
My LiteOn 451s creates unreadable DVD+RW or DVD-RW with nero 6 unloaded, also with InCD 4.( I am using the latest version of Nero 22.214.171.124a and InCD 126.96.36.199) The drive simply cannot recognize any DVD+-RW by Nero and UltraISO . The Green LED slowly blinks 3 times after these failed media inserted into the drive.
I have tried Datawrite (DVD+R 8x), Verbatim Data Life Plus (4x DVD+RW), Ritek (4x DVD+R), Imation (4x DVD-RW, 4x DVD+RW), and TDK (2x DVD-RW).
80% of them results the same. The drive was fine 1 year ago (by the time Freecom sent me this 451s as a replacement of the faulty 411s), but it keeps failing media in all types of media (even CD-RW).
Time to get a new drive ? :sad:
