Hope you can help with this problem. I have a Lite-on LDW-851S DVDRW. It will happily read and burn CDs, but will not detect DVDs of any variety, including commerical DVD-roms of films. I have tried to access/format media with various software, including Nero 6 (latest update) and Sonic myDVD (as came with the drive), plus a couple of different freeware tools. Have upgraded to the latest firmware (GS0P) to no effect. I’m running winXP SP2 at the moment, though it doesn’t work on my Mandrake partition either. Also have a Sony DVD-ROM used only for watching films which is fine.
Would be most grateful for any guidance you can offer. Thanks.
