I've searched Google, and this site was one to come up. I searched here for some similar problems, but the solutions don't seem to work.
Let me try to explain what I am having trouble with:
I have a Sony Vaio desktop (VGC-RA822G) that came with Win MCE 2002.
Unrelated to this, my teacher told us about a program on PBS that deals specifically with what we're learning. I set up Media Center to record the show, and tried to burn it onto DVD to give to my teacher.
However, in both Media Center and Click to DVD (another program that came with the OS) I cannot fully burn or finalize a disc. At first I was getting a "Error: 1536" and found that it might be the firmware.
Having found that the DVD drive was actually a rebranded one (LiteOn SOHW-1633S), I found an update and seemingly flashed it. However, even with this update, I can't burn a disc to completion.
As well, when I place or have a DVD in the drive, it will show up as "CD Drive" rather than "DVD-RW Drive", unless the drive is empty (no disc in tray).
I would really like to get this working, as I told my teacher I would try to get this to her by next class.
Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks for any help you can give!
