I recently put together a new system, and decided to go with Vista 64 since I wanted 4GB or more of RAM. I picked up a LH-20A1S to play around with, and so far it’s the one thing I haven’t been able to get working properly with Vista.
I can’t scan discs - CD/DVD speed just returns a “NO ADDITIONAL SENSE INFORMATION” error after the initial spin-up, and aborts. ImgBurn (when trying to burn an ISO) has either errored out immediately, or seized up at the “synchronizing cache” stage at the end of the burn, forcing me to power down to regain control of the drive. Setting compatibility mode to XP, running as admin, etc., has had no discernable effect.
The only thing that actually does work, is the burning functionality that is built into the OS - I can prepare a disc in Explorer, drag and drop 4GBs of files onto it, and get a working disc a few minutes later. Is there some trick to getting 3rd party burning apps to work in Vista that I’m not aware of? This isn’t going to be the system that I primarily burn discs on, but I would like to get the drive working fully just so I can run some scans and put it through its paces.
FWIW, I’m running a P35-based board with Vista Business x64.
