I really wish I hadn’t bought this POS drive. I hope it breaks in a year so I can have it replaced on warranty.
It’s only been like 2 months and it’s ready to conk out and won’t write on the same media I’ve been using. I realize I use cheap-o media but that’s the only media available where I live (I don’t live in the USA).
Worse, I found out that the DVDs and CDs I’d written earlier don’t read well, or don’t read at all, on other DVD drives. CDs I wrote on my previous burner (a CyberDrive burner) which read on other drives fine don’t read on this Lite On POS!
I’ve made over 50 coasters with this drive in the past month, I only wrote like 10 good non-coaster DVDs in the first month of use. Using the same media.
Now I’ve tried swapping media, updating firmware, using different burn software, trying the tips I see here on these forums, but they don’t seem to want to work.
I would like to advise everyone to stay away from this drive and stick with CyberDrive instead. It’s cheaper and a more reliable brand. I wish I hadn’t thought of “upgrading” to a bigger name brand like Lite On.
What a waste of money!
