Not sure if chef is referring to my post… I have tried the drive in another system and no change. The last time I had this issue in September, a replacement drive sorted the issue but this has now come back. Am I just unlucky or are there issues out there with the HP840’s.
-Tried different media
-Problem is getting worse all the time (higher failure rate of recognising disks, now all disks fail to read/write)
-Tried a different PC
-Have upgraded FW
-Have removed device in Dev mgr
-Have removed all SW (Nero, PowerDVD, Roxio EMC)
I have now returned the drive under warranty and hopefully will get a refund as I don’t want another HP drive. I also don’t particularly want an LG drive as I believe this is rebadged as the HP840.
Are the Liteon drives reliable?? Any other vendors/drives to be recommended/to be avoided.
Am I asking too much of a lightscribe drive to be the only drive in the system or should this be a second drive.
