Hello all, this is my first post here, but I did quite a bit of searching on the forum to try to find my solution.
I’m running Windows XP, SP2. I have a Lite-On LDW-401s DVD+R/CDRW drive that has been installed for about a year. I recently had to format my computer and start anew. The drive will burn fine using programs, such as Nero, Easy CD, DVD X-Copy… but when I insert blank media windows won’t let me open a writeable CD window. The Icon changes to say CD-R, but doesn’t let me open it. If I double-click the icon it says: "Please insert a disc into drive G:)
I remember having to install updated drivers or a patch when I first got the drive last christmas. I can’t for the life of me remember what it is I need to install, and I’ve searched everywhere.
I have installed the software from both CDs that were included with the drive, as well as updated the firmware to the latest version (M).
What am I forgetting? Thanks.
