While searching 4 drivers w/o the added Nero 7 bundle on Lite-Onâ€™s site a few months back which yielded absolutely nothing. Every time I clicked on the link to download the driver, I got a 404 error so I guess it is no longer supported which is lousy service IMHO. Then found your site w/ extremely valuable & vast information. I have no doubt w/ the wealth of information Iâ€™ve seen by posters/ users here that you can assist meâ€¦and if you canâ€™tâ€¦nobody can.
I have an old Lite-On CDROM LTN5265 reader only & very recently purchased (less than 6 mths) a Lite-On LH-201P CD/DVD burner (2 replace my broken NEC CD/DVD burner). This inquiry is 4 my Lite-On LH-20A1P CD/DVD burner. FYI: I chose retail even though my burner is black. Hope I chose correctly.
I want to do a fresh reload my machine w/ Win XP Pro w/ minimal drivers to run my burner. My Liteon will read CDs, but wonâ€™t burn until I load the Nero (basic) 7 installation disk that came w/ the burner. MS updates wonâ€™t update/ provide drivers I assume b/c itâ€™s not plug-n-play. I do have & use Nero 6 Ultra Edition. Itâ€™s too late to download a Nero tool I thought may help (luckily, I did save the exe update file when it was still available).
Also, after reading this thread (http://club.myce.com/f44/lite-lh-20a1p-post-your-scans-here-201092/index34.html) that Nero wonâ€™t let me change the burn speed. How can I correct this? MYCE Senior Admin â€œC0deKingâ€ had some download links, however I was lost on which to use.
-Is there a generic basic driver I can load and/ or my Nero 6 Ultra recognizes my Liteon burner?
-Also, after reading this thread (sorry, canâ€™t find now) that Nero wonâ€™t let me change the burn speed. How can I correct this? How often do I have to do this? Any ill side effects?
-I always assumed the slowest burn speed was best to maintain quality 4 some pics & vids. Am I wrong? There are only a few files I really care about quality. Some files arenâ€™t all that important 4 quality, so itâ€™s frustrating when I canâ€™t use the maximum burn speed.
-Is there a noticeable difference in quality of different RW, DL, CD/DVD manufactures? Meaning, Iâ€™ve just been buying the best deal @ Wally World. This question may need 2 be in a different thread, so just let me know.
-Iâ€™ve been using CD-R/ DVD-Râ€™s. Should I be using +Râ€™s? Have read here & still donâ€™t understand the difference.
-I will be coming back here soon b/c I want to buy a inexpensive DL burner preferably w/ light scribe as I havenâ€™t figured out how to make labels even though Nero 6 supports it. I did hear the light scribe is still needs work. Easy to understand step by step directions, requirements (materials/ parts needed), tutorial links for label making greatly appreciated!
-Edit last above: Just re-read the box. So I can burn quality dual layer 9+GB DVDâ€™s w/ this??? If soâ€¦Awesome. Never used a DL disk. Does it matter if it is â€œ-Râ€, â€œ+Râ€, â€œ-R/RWâ€, and/ or â€+R/RWâ€? Any cons or things I should know or read?
Any thoughts, suggestions, etc will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in Advance!
Admin: I know I threw out a lot of topics, so if any of these questions need to be divided up into different threads, please just let me know. Also, I was blown away when attempting my 1st post & all model #â€™s, etc were right there (even though I had mine included w/ my post). Thanks 4 providing such an awesome well organized 1st class site!!!
