[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On SOHW-1213SX. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello everyone. I’ve been having a problem with my Lite-On SOHW-1213x. I have had my burner for about a year and I have burnt about 150 DVDs on it. Here recently, it has refused to burn any DVDs. My Computer sees the drive correctly until I put a blank DVD in it and then it sees it as a CD Drive. It will correctly recognize, play and burn CDs; and play DVDs. Any ideas?

No ideas from anyone?

This is completely normal for Windows XP/Vista.

You didn’t include any error messages, logs, or other info that could help with diagnosing the trouble. Try burning with ImgBurn and post the log.

The 1213 is an old drive and has probably seen its day. Drives are really cheap these days, so, maybe time to upgrade.
