I have just bought a LiteOn Combo drive and it seems to have some problems with reading some of my CD-Rs.
I have tried updating the firmware to KH0P, but it did not improve the problem.
Whenever I insert one of my CD-Rs, it either takes ages to recognize it and read at really slow speeds or does not recognize the CD-R at all. It also ignores my blank media and prompts me to insert the media to write on, after reading for a while from the disc.
The LiteOn FAQ mentions "Don't use crap discs." Does that apply to reading as well?
This is what Nero CD Speed tells me when I try to do a speed test on the disc. Here is the disc info :
Manufacturer : Multi Media Masters & Machinary [sic]
Code : 97m28s22f
Usage : General
Recording Layer : Dye Type 2: Long Strategy(Cyanine, AZO)
This is on Windows 2000 SP4, without CloneCD or EasyCD Creator installed.
What should I do? The drive is brand new. Should I exchange it for another?
