I used to have a SOHW-1639S on my old XP comp. It worked very well absolutely no issues on XP. I dual-booted Vista Ultimate on the rig and worked ok except that everytime I put in a DVD or CD in the drive, it always wants to format it and cannot read the contents. I have to re-open and close the DVD tray for the drive to be able to read it properly and not want to format it. This only happened on Vista, on XP it worked perfect.
I got a new rig and decided to again get a lite-on DVD drive on it. I got a lite-on DH20A3S running on Vista Ultimate. The bad thing is, the same symptom as what happend in my old rig on vista always happens. The drive always wants to format any DVD/CD I put in it and I have to re-open and close the tray for the drive to be able to read the DVD/CD properly.
Is this a known issue with Vista and lite-on drives? ANy way I can get the drive to work normally and not have to re-open and close the tray everytime?
