hey! im kinda noobish when it comes to installing new hardware and i need some help. i just bought the Lite-On LH-20A1L-05 (SATA, OEM) to replace my SOHW-1633s and i cant seem to get it working properly. My motherboard is ECS KT600A.
First, after i installed the drive, my Windows XP didnt recognize the drive (not in device manager), so my friend helped me go the the ECS website to download this “VIA SATA RAID Controller Driver”. After he installed the driver, the drive showed up in the device manager as “LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1L SCSI CdRom Device”. I thought that fixed the problem, but theres another problem…
When I tried to burn some dvd copies, it takes forever! So i did the Nero cd-dvd speed test thing and the max speed was around 2.5x. I was burning on Verbatim DVD-R 16x discs. It all takes around 30 minutes to burn.
Can someone please help me! Did i miss something? Feel free to ask me for my info if that can help you help me solve my problem. I dont feel like RMAing it if someone can help me fix it here. Thanks in advance!
