Hmm, well, that didn't seem to work. I am running on windows 2000 Pro, SP 2. I use nero 6 as my burning software. Whenever I run it though, the only device it recognizes is an image recorder, a virtual device. I have tried everything I can think of as far as software, and troubleshooting the device. I checked the connections, the master/slave setting, etc. installed it again etc. I have a sony crw230e CDRW that is having the same problems, but I figure that the liteon is more vital, and If I can figure out what is wrong with it, I can probably figure out the sony as well.
