Oh I have reached the end of my rope! Anyone with experienced advice please give me a hand.
Here's my background, if it helps any. This is my 4th LTW.
The 1st 411 was bad, returned & confirmed defective.
The 2nd worked fine for 2 weeks, I burned all sorts of DVD's (4x and 2x) and Cd's. Then, suddenly stopped working (no disc spin-up). Returned and confirmed defective.
The 3rd functioned normally, but would not burn! I tried everything I read on this forum - ASPII drivers from 4.6 to 4.7 and back, upgraded firmware, uninstalling software, but no results.
I returned the unit thinking it was defective, but was told it was not.
Now the 4th unit is a 451, and I am having the same situation as the 3rd 411 - fully functioning except for burning! I have not tried to burn CD's, only DVD's at 4x media. The media is Memorex, but also fails with the sample provided with the unit (I would expect that media to me compatible.)
Sorry to write so much, if you've read this far, here's the bottom line - I don't know what else to do to get this unit to burn.
Any help would be appreciated. Here are my specs
AMD XP 1800 (1.5 GHz)
Via KR7A MoBo w/latest drivers
512 Meg DDR
80 Gig HDD w/OS, 160 Gig & 40 Gig storage
Win XP Pro SP1
Did I leave anything out? Again, please help a desperate soul.
