Hey, I need some help with my Lite-On SOHW-812SX. Recently I got a 50 pack of Memorex 16x DVD-R’s, so I went to go back-up some of my DVD’s. Except when i did, it would stop at about 20-30% of the burning, saying there was an error, I wasted 6 discs so far. 4 of them were the same movie, and then i tried 2 other movies. Each time I went into DVDShrink, shrunk down the disc, 2 of the same movie (out of the four) werent burnt with nero through dvdshrink, i then burnt the 3rd of the same movie just through nero, no dvdshrink, then the fourth of the 4 of the same was opened with dvdshrink, then burnt with DVDDecrypter, another movie was opened with DVDShrink and burnt with DVDDecrypter, and the last movie was opened with DVDShrink, and burnt with CopyToDVD. None of these worked, they all stopped around 20-30%.
So, today I tried upgrading the firmware. And now its worse. The LED just blinks orange. Even when the computers off. I tried OmniPatcher, and after patching the files, none of them worked. Ive tried other firmware, but nothing. It just blinks, it doesnt read or write DVDs.
Can someone please help me. I really just want to get my burner working again. Thanks.
