I'm a simple man and have spent almost a day on this. I am trying to resurrect an XP machine for some old cad, schematic capture and pcb layout software (some works much better than newer versions I've used). I would like to be able to backup to a DVD, like I used to. I have a liteon SHW160Ps6S which XP sees correctly but it loads the driver for a CD.
I have spent almost a day on this. I can find lots of firmware downloads but no drivers, other than programs that cost money (which I'm hesitant to try as I'm cheap and there's no guarantee they'll work - the free versions don't) and/or scan my computer and don't update the driver. The Liteon site does not seem to support their older DVD R/W.
I thought maybe the CD driver was installed because it would work, as if a DVD is just a big CD, but it will only read DVDs. Burning software will not recognize the DVD.
