This is my first post so please go gentle on me
My friend just helped me to install a Lite-on LDW-401S (DVD+R/+RW). It’s the master on the secondary IDE channel I think. I upgraded the firmware to the latest official ES0G version. XP recognizes it fine, DMA is enabled.
However, when I try using Roxio or NTI CDmaker to try to burn a CD on it, I keep getting “Insert CD in drive D” or “Drive D inaccessible” message (after putting in a perfectly fine CD-R in the drive)
When I tried using DVDInfo Pro to test the included DVD+R media DVD+R, the status reads" “No media is present”. With a Philips DVD+R, it reads:
Region information N/A not a DVD-VIDEO
Manufacturer ID cannot be read
Format Capacity Blank
Free Blocks 405405696
Free Capacity 4.38GB(4.70GB)
Book Type Unknown
Media Type DVD+R
Media Id Code Speed Unknown
Available Write Descriptor CLV 2.4x 3324KBps
Linear Density Blank Disc
Track Density Unknown
Number of Layers 1
DVD Plus Identifier also doesn’t recognize the media. I see “Not available” for all criteria (Disc type, manufacturer, media type. etc.) and the status reads “Disc Not Yet Initialized:Not ready-Medium not present”. With a Philips DVD+R in there I get a status of “ADIP Read M1 Failed:illegal Request-invalid field in CDB”
SmartBurnMediaCheck shows (with the factory supplied DVD+R)
[1-0-0-0: Lite-on DVD+RW LDW-401S ES0G]
Drive Type = DVD+R/+RW
Disc Type = NO MEDIA
and with a Philips DVD+R
Drive Type = DVD+R/+RW Disc Type = DVD+R Manufacturer = Unknown(052400 INVALID FIELD IN CDB)
Smart-Burn Speed Limit = Wrt(2.4X),Rd(6.0X)
- Why do the CD burning programs keep asking me to insert a CD-R when I’ve already got one in there?
- Why do the DVD media querying utilities not show any significant details about the DVD+R media in there?
- what’s this deal about the invalid field in CDB?
Any help will be much appreciated.
