I got the official information back from Lite-on. I was burning a lot of coasters with this burner. The problem was, some discs were worthless; others seemed to be fine,but the last 20 minutes were messtup.
If you have one of these, here is what I had to do to make this burner work:
Turn off ALL programs, including a screen saver
Turn burner to the absolute slowest speed (2.4x)
Pray the electricity doesn’t cut off.
And in less than an hour, I can burn a disk
I am so unhappy with lite-on
I need to buy another burner; this came with HP (actually, they sent it to me after wearing out the previous DVD writer).
