Finalize dvd, changing drives

[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On LDW-411S/451S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Greetings, I have a ilo dvdrhd04. The 451s drive has finally quit. I am able to find replacement suggestions for this problem (“Liteons SOHW16xx or DDW8xx series”). Thank you helloshaun for that information. I am wondering if it will be possible to finalize several discs on the new drive that I never got done on the old 451s. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thx

Welcome to the forum. :flower:

It might work, you’ll just have to try it and see. I doubt you’ll be able to finalize with a different drive inside the recorder, but as I said, you have nothing to lose so go for it. There isn’t any special advice to give, if that’s what you’re looking for. Either the normal process of finalizing a disc will work, or it won’t. No way around that or any way to manipulate that.
