Long story short......I bought a Sony DW-D26a DVD drive and am using it as an external in a hako housing. The first movie dup'ed (with 1 click dvd copy) with no problem (used fujifilm dvd-rw media...only had one). When I tried subsequent dups with dvd-r TDK and generic dvd-r, I got an error message each time I tried it.....I figure this is a media compatibility issue. I have subsequently realized Sony doesn't support this drive. I researched and found that is is a Liteon SOHW 1673S(?) and that I should upgrade the firmware. I ran the nero software to find the firmware version but Nero never "sees" the new drive....just my internal dvd drive and some funky partitioned drive my brother-in-law set up?? So I was just going to take the advice of afew threads on cdfreaks.com. I downloaded the firmware (1673) from liteon.com and when i tried to run it, it says "No Liteon drive detected". What in the cha cha should i do!!
Desperately seeking redemption and money; the chicks will follow!!
