Hi guys, I’m new here and I hope i will find the help needed.
I’ve got this drive for about 8 months, but i have writted/read no more than 50 CD/DVDs with it. It was working properly, but 3 days ago I formated my hard disk and installed Windows XP Pro SP2 again and since then my 165H6S doesn’t want to read DVD media. IT reads and writes ordinary CDs perfectly. I tested the CD read speed - it goes up to 48x. So nothing wrong here. But when I insert a DVD disc in it it says that there is no disc in the drive, or that the disc is empty (but it isn’t, it is full of information). IT reads DVD-RWs, erases them and writes them again, but it has problems with ordinary DVDs. The discs are clean, with no scratches on them. I downloaded the latest firmware from the Lite On site, i think it was H0S-E or something like that (it upgraded my firmware from some H0S-D to E), but this didn’t help.
So guys, any ideas how can i fix that problem cause i’m desperate
