[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On SHW-160P6S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]recently i was desperately trying to find a piece of software that read ISRC codes, to cut a long story short, i installed loads of CD burning and Reading software, once i had attchieved what i set out to do, i un-installed all the new software i had just installed.
This seems to have changed some setting on my drive and it will no longer recognise any discs.
Strangely if i insert a disc and open a programme EG windows media player and i select the drive it will then play the disc, but as far as opening my computer and selecting the drive, it just says nothing it there.
I was told i need to update the firmware, heres the fun part, i downloaded the firmware for Liteon SHW-160PS but when trying to run the firmware an error comes up saying "NO MATCHED DRIVE DETECTED, THIS UTILITY IS ONLY FOR LITE-ON DVDRW SHW-160P6S DRIVE. DETECTED DRIVES: 2-0-0-0 E:LITE-ON DVDRW SHW-160P6S PRS2"
guess what the PRS2 firware isnt available from the LiteOn website, after contacting LiteOn they say Acer who make my PC have made ammendments to the firmware so they do not supply it for download, Acer say they need to take the PC in and have a look at it, but it is my mainwork PC and i cant release it to them as i need it 24/7.
Please help ?!?! anyone ???
PS: I have been avoiding this issue for ages so system restor doesnt go back as far to correct the issue :O(
