Im Tim and I am having issues with my liteon burner

I bout this for my dell optiples sx260 with windows xp. I hooked it up using a adapter i purchased its a usb to ide, with power supply connector. It will read all cd’s that have written data and dvd’s with written data but it wont read blank cd’s or dvds. I make alot of movies and need this to work. I sent it back to newegg and got a replacement and it still does the same. I updated firmware, hotfix and changed around the jumpers. Anybody have any ideas what is wrong with this? maybe because of the adapter?

Thanks much :confused:

Internal or external drive? I’ve never heard of a USB to IDE converter.

What software are you using? Have you tried different software? Try ImgBurn.

USB to IDE must be some kind of external case for your burner.
