I finally got a Lite-On, yay.
I patched an older version of nero 5.5 to 188.8.131.52 to make it support the drive. So in Nero I try to burn and in the Write CD screen (the small one with buffer/progress meters, etc) it freezes up.
Status box says…“Caching of files started” and the text on the task bar says “Writing to disc” but at this point it does nothing. The progress meter jumps to 100% but nothing was written. I can’t click on anything and shutting down does not do anything, either. >_<
Firmware was upgraded from VS04 to VS0A stock. And I tried burning to Memorex (CMC Magnetics or something) and a Ritek that was included with the drive, both are DVD-R types.
Computer is using a motherboard with a VIA chipset. I am using v4.43; not the newest because the site mentioned some people with older motherboards had better performance with the older ones.
Where should I go from here? It can read DVDs fine.
