Lite-On DVDRW LH-18A1H - Write Errors

Hi All, I am in need of help…

My last DVD broke down and provided years of writting DVDs with out fail.

I read the review on here about the Lite-On DVDRW LH-18A1H and decided to purchase one as a replacement.

Installation was a straight replacement which was easy. I have Nero 7 premium installed.

I used nero vision to start write project which take 2 mins, and went through the usual, it started writting phase then stopped with a failed burn error.

I tried a few more forcing the speed to 16X and 12X but still got this random write error at different stages.

I tried different DVD-r disks which also failed. I have Tuff Disks 16X which are excellent media, but the drive log reports write error at different point durring the burn.

I uninstalled nero, and reinstalled it as a last resort, but still the same. I let one nero vision run and it completed the burn. But that was a one off so it seems random.

I used Nero Express and created a project, it failed, a few times, THEN I turned off the Inteligent Burn for the drive and it works 100%. BUT Nero Vision setting don’t give you the option to turn off the Inteligent Burn option so it fails.

I tried a CD with Inteli Burn off then On and it seem to work ok with both.

Can anyone help me out on this one?
