I have a liteon recognised by my system as DRW1S81,running on XP with Record now Dx software (previously I used Nero 6.3? - latest version anyway)
I can write to DVD+RW disks but it will not read/write to DVD+R - soooo frustrating as it is meant to do all four DVD +/- R/RW formats.
I am a complete novice and do not have too much technical knowledge.
Windows XP automatically loaded the driver.
I hear things like firmware and flashing drives but don't have a clue.Liteon helpline (e mail europe somewhere) couldn't help.
Can any of you knowledgeable people assist (in laymans language)
Do I need firmware?Where and how do I get it?
PS I have tried different manufacturers of DVD+R's - TDK,Verbatin etc.
Thanks in anticipation.
