I posted a message on a few days back (on the end of someone elses thread, which i now cant find , where my recently purchased LTR-52327S CD-writer (made in Jan 2004) was not being recognised as a CD-writer, only as a CD-ROM.
Sseth kindly suggested perhaps that it was the APSI not being installed, which i checked last night…
I have checked my PC and the ASPI was already installed (v4.56). I used ForceASPI to update it to v4.60 but it the problem is still the same.
Nero-4 recognises the drive as an ‘image recorder’ but when i ask it for disk-info and a blank CD is inserted, it doesnt give any information at all (not even to say its blank). Nero-Express that comes with the cd-writer is the same, and easy cd-creator does not recognise the drive at all (mind you, it is quite an old version!).
Also, when in Windows Explorer the cd-writer acts fine as a CD-ROM but it does not read most previously burnt CDR’s (both audio and data ones), only proper original CDs. I have heard that this drive sometimes has problems like this, is this true at all please?.
Its all a bit confusing! Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thanks a lot,
