Are DH-20A4P's junk?

Purchased one new about 11 months ago and didn’t use it very often, found out the other day it won’t burn CD-R at all (just makes bad noises and nero errors out), replaced it with another DH-20A4P new out of the box with a similar build date (late 2007), this one reads/burns CD-R just fine, but just makes noises trying to read even ORIGINAL DVD movies…

what gives!

Update the firmware?


#3

Stock firmware, SB-On, HT-On…manufacture date Aug 2008.

yes, both on 9P59, I’m a computer technician/it solutions provider and i’ve had MANY rma’s on recent lite-on drives… very disappointing, they either have trouble reading/writing certain formats or the tray mechanism stops working

had MUCH better luck with the now decaying NEC drives

My DH-20A4P works just great! Had it since end of Jan 2008 and have burned many discs on it.
