Lite-On problems

I’ve got the 24/10/40 burner, and clone cd says this:

Device Capabilities:
Note: This information is provided by the unit, it might be inaccurate. CloneCD does not use this information!
Manufacturer: LITE-ON

However, I am only able to write SAO. I have the same problem with Blind Write. If I try to write any type of RAW, or any type of DAO, it says the drive is unable to write in that mode, switching to normal SAO.

Any Ideas what’s going on?

What Chipset are you on … VIA / INTEL ?

What operating system are you using ?

What is the size of your PSU ?
( Some is having problems with Abit KT7 and LiteON 24102b due to PSU’s not giving enough power )

That info might help, huh!

Windows 2000 Pro, Service Pack 2
933 megahertz AMD Duron
Board: First International Computer, Inc. AZ11 PCB 1.X
Bus Clock: 104 megahertz
Via chipset
Got a 250 watt power supply.

latest drivers for VIA chipset and
more powerful PSU can be very helpful for you

min power when buy an AMD processor is 300W to have a decent stability,for my experience.

This has nothing to do with the way a writer can write CD’s!

Try latest firmware and reïnstall the drive + software.

I DO have the latest firmware, and tried a couple of earlyer versions, plus, this is a fresh win 2k install!

This is just a wild guess, but could it be something silly like needing a UDMA cable instead of a standard IDE cable?

…mm wookie,you right… :o

yj4x4 : i don’t think …you need only a standard ribbon cable in good condition because the unit support up to ultra dma mode 2 33,then no need for 80-wire cable

80 wire cable needed ONLY if you have connected an ATA66 or ATA100 hard drive.


Not true about the PSU

I have seen a Lite-ON 24102B on an Abit KT7 not being able to write any CD’s but when the burner was hooked to an external powersupply … no problemo ( although this is not something I would recommmend due to the power on signal from the PSU )

But that said … this might not be the case here !

and besides I have also seen 400W PSU fail as AMD PSU’s simply because of their low and unstable +5.5V
