I have a Lite-On LH-20A1L with BL05 firmware.
I have been having issues with DVD+/-RW media in that I can’t erase it after data has been added to the disc with this drive and “DP Simple Burner” or “AMOK CD-DVD Burning” software(these programs have a default setting of ‘Finalize Disc’, which is not future set savable). I have attempted to erase the media with multiple programs including BwgEraseDisk, Nero 7 and 8. I understand what ‘Finalize’ means for a disc in the write-once scenario, but why would it matter with a RW disc?
Anyways, can someone please help me to recover the usage of these discs which I am largely responsible for possibly ruining.
My hardware/software enviroment is as follows:
WinXp Sp2(fully current updates)
AMD 4400 X2 2x1MB
ASUS A8N32-SLI-Deluxe(nForce4 6.86 Drivers)
PATA and SATA HDD’s
nVidia 7950 GT(171.16 Drivers)
Hauppuage WIN-TV Analog Tuner Card(with WHQL Drivers)
No other Optical Drive
I have disabled all Anti-Virus during later attempts.
I also washed behind my ears.
