Lite-on CVCRW SOHW-1653S

[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On SOHW-1653S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have been converting avi files to DVD format using convertxtoDVD 3 then burning them to my Nextech 16x DVDs with no problems. then i recently had to reinstall my os and now i cannot burn anything, the program says the DVD is incompatable. ahhhrrgggg!!!

ok, so i have read though these forums for over 8 hours and have tried to flash the firmware for my dvd burner. i even took the DVD drive out and looked at the model number. it says it’s a 1633s on the device it’s self but my PC sees it as a 1653s???

i tried a few different firmware from both this site and the official lite-on site and i even tried my luck with the omnipatcher. I have had NO success :frowning: i have tried using nero, alcohol 120% and it seems ALL my programs are now useless until i either get a new DVD burner or somehow get this one working again… can someone please help me… :sad:
