Sorry if that was confusing, but I copied and pasted it directly from my online conversation with Liteon. Basically, my drive with would burn DVDs fine, but would not recognize any type of CD media. Liteon support had me remove the filters, no problem, and it has worked flawlessly since.
Just go to the reg: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > Class
Select the folder 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318
In the Right Hand Pane: Look for UpperFilters and/or LowerFilters.
Remove those entrees. Once removed, there should be 8 and only 8 entries on the right side.
