My Digital Max DRW 5S163 (which is apparently a rebadged Lite-On SHW-1635S) suddenly quit recognizing andy type of CD…blank, pre-recorded, regardless of brand. It will still recognize and burn DVD’s as good as ever.
The unit is about six months old. I tried updating the firmware, switching position on IDE cable, un-installing and re-installing, even putting it into a differenct computer, etc. Digital Max won’t reply to my tech support e-mails. Before I trash it, is there anything else I can try?
