[QUOTE=BlueSwan;2100745]I bought my current PC in 2006. Already when I first put it together I had problems with BSOD’s. The BSODs always happened when reading from my Lite-On SHW-160P6S DVD-writer. Thinking that I might have a faulty drive, I went back to the store and got another one, but the BSODs were still there. I then put my old (and noisy) Lite-On SOWH-1653S DVD-writer in and the problems disappeared. Not a single BSOD in the 2Â½ years that have passed.
However, now my 6 year old Lite-On SOWH-1653S seems to have given in. When I try to burn a DVD I get a power calibration error from Nero. So I was thinking of replacing it, but fearing the BSOD problem.
For the sake of it, I tried installing the Lite-On SHW-160P6S drive again and I immediately got a BSOD.
Basically, all I want is a functional DVD-writer and I’d appreciate any help in getting one. I’d buy a new one in a second if I knew that it would work, but I’d hate to buy a new one only to get more BSOD’s. I once read that there was some issues with some Nvidia drivers, could this be it?
My PC specs: Gigabyte K8NS Ultra-939 motherboard with Nvidia Nforce 3 chipset. AMD X2 4200 CPU. 2 GB Corsair RAM. 2 Seagate Barracuda 300 GB hard drives. Corsair 520W power supply.[/QUOTE]
What kinda O/S are you using? Have you tried that drive in another computer??? Also did you contact Liteon as to the nature of your problem?? Nvidia drivers have nothing to do with DVD drives…they are for Nvidia chipset or video card…maybe you you should look at make sure you have the right chipset drivers and video card drivers…
