I have been using the liteon 811s for several months now and i have created some great quality dvds. But now, the Lite-On BookType software utility no longer works and I can’t figure out why and how to get it to work again.
I have swapped out the motherboard on my computer twice in an effort to upgrade. The new motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-7N400Pro2. It had some problems with the IDE controller and I did an RMA on it. In the meantime I put my old one back in and now when I use my dvd burner i can’t change the booktype.
I updated the firmware with the latest and this made no difference. I tried the latest patch thing and unless I am clueless about how to use it, it made no difference. Even the DVDinfopro will not change the Booktype and the dvds still show as DVD+ rather than DVD-ROM. I am at a loss trying to figure out what went wrong unless the burner is a goner. It still writes DVD+RW but I haven’t tried any of the DVD+Rs because I have one player in our house that won’t play DVD+RS (it’s relatively new by the way, it’s not just the older players that won’t play them.)
Can anyone please help or advise?
