Liteon DH20A4P won't burn

vbimport

#1

Bought one OEM Liteon DH20A4P from NewEgg, however it won’t burn for me.

I am using Nero version: 6.0.0.15, which burns well for my MadDog burner.

Updated driver. Tried all Master/Slave/Cable Selection (I am using it with an IDE enclosure), none of them worked.

The error occurs when initializing the disc. Always says “reset occured”, and Nero shows device failed.

(When I set the burner to slave, it says "Could not perform start of Disc-at-once“)

Tried to burn a CD too. The process was completed, however it doesn’t play properly on CD player.

Any clue is appreciated! thx

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Usually when a drive is installed on an external box it should be set as master or the drive will be not recognized at all.

Your problem could be due to an insufficient power of the drive (some cheap boxes have a bas PSU included).

Try to install the drive internally (with the proper master/slave setting of course to avoid conflicts with the other installed devices) and see if this solve.

Another possibility is that cables in the box are not plugged loosely, so check that anything is connected good.

Another possibility is that you are using very poor quality discs, so the drive is not able to burn them at all.

Another possibility is that the drive is damaged, so you must ask for a RMA. To check if the drive is damaged, installing it internally should be a good enough test.

Another possibility is that your computer has a problem with USB ports. If you are using Windows, be sure to have installed service pack 2.

At the moment I’m not able to think to other possibilities :frowning:

You’re welcome :slight_smile:


#5

Try a newer version of Nero.


#6

Yup, 6.0.0.15 is very outdated.
Try at least 6.6.x.
