First I’m new on these forums so don’t get mad if I am saying something stupid .
I have Lite-on dvdrw sohw-1633s drive that got messed up BAD. First I installed new firmware, because burned dvds had some sort of write errors ( -->bs41 ) and then this happened: I couldn’t burn any dvds only cds, nero complained something about block adresses or something like that. Then my friend came check it out and said that I have wrong firmware installed ( he says that should have been bsos not bs41, ). So I got panicked and tried to install that other firmware AND official or any other flasher refused to see that drive ( windows could see it and I could still read disks, programs could see it, but flasher couldn’t )
After fighting something like week with this piece of :a , I reinstalled windows ( it seems that nvidia’s new ide drivers were causing something… ). And later I managed to install that bsos ( on my friend computer ) But there is still some sort of problem… drive can read cds ( sometimes they lock up the computer and drive starts making speeding-up and slowing down sound ) drive can’t read those dvds very well they’ll do the same thing as cds, everytime. And writing dvds ( with nero ) burns R-e-a-l-l-y slow, used read buffer goes to 0% and then goes back 100 % and that buffer level jump all the time from 0 to 100%…
And there are still couple of odd things, first nero infotool says that system aspi is not installed ( but nero aspi is installed ). Another rather odd thing is that if I disable ( or uninstall it ) and enable it windows says found new hardware: Lite-on dvdrw sohw-1663s and then it changes “cd-rom”. It seems that windows handles drive as cdrom drive
So if can help me with this problem, I would be really thankful . If have you something to ask about situation, just ask. And this will be the last time when I touch those firmware upgrades
