Hey guys, I am having a problem with my lite-on 431-s (drive that came with an e-machines m6809 laptop) dvd-rw burner. Now before I start I want to assure you I have tried troubleshooting and searching for information on this issue for weeks before actually posting for help. Basically the problem is this, the drive will not burn (readable) DVDs. It will burn cd-r’s fine, but when I try to burn a DVD, although it sucessfully burns, the disk is never readable by any dvd drive (the physical burn on the disk always looks the same too, same size no matter what I burn).
I have tried changing software, changing the brand of disk, upgrading firmware, I even re-installed windows, and still nothing. I just find it hard to understand why I can read dvd’s/cd’s write cd-r’s but no long write dvd’s. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated
