Well, another Lite-On, same problem.
Before, it was LH-18A1P (FW GL0F), now the LH-20A1H (FW LL06), anything I say from here on in, can relate to both of those burners.
First burn after installing it, FAILED, I/O Error. Then, 17 burns in a row, nothing but success, I was feeling happy. Then, I/O Error again & again, then a few good ones, and I/O Error to follow.
The I/O Error happens at various points.
I've tested numerous IDE cables, put both burners into external cases, using firewire (prolific), still, same problem.
After the I/O Error, ImgBurn, just finalizes the DVD & that's it.
From their 4x to 16x models, I had nothing but success....sigh.
Here's a print out of the I/O Error, followed by 2 burns, 1 @ 16x & the 2nd @ 18x.
Just tell me, is this I/O Error normal now-a-days with Lite-On? If it is, should I just get myself an 18x Samsung (I already have the newest Optiarc & LG drives, love'em both).
