Sorry to thread-jack.but I'm having issues with this same drive. Although, my issues are related to the lightscribe feature.
Although this drive came as a LS drive w/ Nero Express 6 (updated on website) the program can't find a LS enabled drive.
I downloaded a eval version of sure thing cd/dvd label maker w/ LS features and it as well cannot find a LS enabled drive.
What settings should I check or what diagnostics could I run to figure if this is, in fact, a bad drive.
I have been able to burn cd's/dvd's with no issues. It's simply the LS feature thats being a bugger at the moment.
thanks in adv.
