It came today, I opened it up and installed it under WinXP.
After booting up windows notified me and i continued to install the driver, it said it was not signed i said “Continue Anyways” and it gave me the correct name and said it installed OK.
Going to NERO Burner it recognizes the drive just fine with correct model number so i get ready to burn something and it pops open the tray and says no media detected. i was using a CompUSA 24x, so i tried the CD-R that came with the Lite-On. Same thing.
I looked on the Lite-On site and it says to use the Default drivers in windows. I got their firmware flash program and my drive has the latest XS0X already installed. so i look at the forum here for media types and read about ForceASPI 1.7 i installed that and everything said OK. then i upgraded to adaptec 4.71 and that said OK. i used the CDR-Identifier program and also the SMARTBURN program from Lite-ON which both are suppoed to show the media types and they both said UNKOWN for every option on both the CompUSA 24x and factory sealed CD-R from Lite-ON.
Why is my burner not working? Please help.
