I just bought a new DVD burner from lite-on. it is a sohw-1673s. it plays dvds and cds just fine, but i can’t seem to create any with it. i am using nero express which is what came with the drive. when i go to creat a cd or dvd all that i am able to select is the image recorder to ‘burn’ to. i have also tried to use the windows XP burnign software to no avail.
in my computer it shows up as DVD-RW drive until blank media is placed into it, and then it simply shows as CD-Drive. i have tried this with both CD-R and DVD-R media. with the DVD-Rs it also shows the Total Size as 0MB and the free space as 0MB.
i have tried upgrading the firmware on the drive. when i tried this it told me i had the latest version, but i went ahead and upgraded it anyway. I have also flashed my BIOS as i thought the BIOS wasn’t decting it properly.
what else should i try?
