When I burn a dvd it can play in my player but cannot re-read in my computer after I eject dvd disk
Welcome to cdfreaks
I think you need to tell us just a tad more information.
liteon 451s, gsbc firmware, notice it happens only for matrix media-use to work ok, P4 2.8GHz CPU, 512 RAM, MSI mainboard…need anything else
Sometimes just deleting the IDE channel(in ‘device manager’) the drive is on and rebooting to let windows re-recognize the drive can help. Let us know if it does.
I am starting to notice a pattern here. If you do a search on GSBC in these forums you will find numerous people are having problems reading DVD’s once they’ve flashed their 451S to that firmware version. I have a December 2003 manufactured 451S that originally came with GSB4 which has worked flawlessly since I bought it over a year ago.
Last week I bumped it up to GSBC and suddenly it went flakey reading discs. It would not recognize several pressed DVD’s and various recorded ones. Even the original DVD+RW that came with the drive would no longer mount! The drive would blink for a while, make some clicking and seeking noises, then just stop. Accessing it yielded an error message that no disc is inserted.
I stepped back to GSB4 and it worked perfectly again. Then I went to GSB6, GSB7, and then GSB9. It worked perfectly with each of them. When I loaded GSBA it went flaky again. I loaded the latest 451S@832S code and it also went flaky. Now I’m back to GSB9 and it runs well again.
It seems that a certain batch of 451S drives cannot tolerate firmware newer than GSB9.
