Welcome to the Forum.
A Sony CRX216E is actually a LiteOn LTR-48327S. A Sony CRX230E is actually a LiteOn LTR-52327S. All these drivers are from the late 2003/ early 2004 timeframe era.
Back in 2003/2004 it was very poplar to cross flash a CRX216E/LTR-48327S to a CRX230E/LTR-52327S. Apparently that is what has happened in your instance. Having your CRX216E/LTR-48327S crossed flashed to a CRX230E/LTR-52327S isnâ€™t a problem and is actually is a good thing because the Drive should perform better after the cross flashing.
Having your Sony CRX216E being crossed flashed to CRX230E and being recognized as a CRX230E should not be causing your â€œWont Burn CDsâ€ problem. Something else is causing your â€œWont Burn CDsâ€ problem.
Unfortunately you have provided very limited pertinent information to make a meaningful assessment as to what might be causing your â€œWont Burn CDsâ€ problem. What software program and version number are you attempting to use to Burn your CDs? What Error Codes and Error Warning Narratives are you receiving? What CD Media are you attempting to use? The more specific detailed information you can provide the better Forum Member can assist you with your â€œWont Burn CDsâ€ problem.
