Hi everybody, I’m writing from Italy so please sorry for my english.
I purchased a LiteON SOHW-1213S few days ago and I’m not able to use it.
My system is an AMD Athlon XP1600+ with 512 MB of RAM DDR. The motherboard is an Asus A7A266 with chipset ALi, the BIOS is updated at version 1012 (date 2003/05/05) and I installed the drivers of the chipset (ALi Integrated Driver v.2.05).
On the first channel IDE I have the system hard disk (master) and a secondary hard disk (slave).
On the second channel IDE I have as master the DVD-Writer in object and a Waitec Storm 32 as slave.
The data that I try to write reside on a Maxtor 6Y200M0 (200 GBs SATA) climbed on a RocketRAID 1520.
The system is Windows XP SP2 but I has also tried with Windows 2000 and Windows XP SP1 without any difference, rather, the best results have been those of Windows XP SP2.
I tried with many burning softwares. To bring an example I illustrate you what happens with Nero Burning ROM 18.104.22.168.
The burn-process correctly starts, the simulation finishes with positive result and start the writing process. At this point, despite the read buffer is constant on 99-100%, the write buffer goes up and down, also with all the processes killed from the Task Manager.
The verification of the data with Nero fails, the final DVD is legible only partly.
I tried many supports, Network, Memorex, TX and finally Verbatim, all DVD-R and all 4X.
Nero doesn’t allow me to burn at 2X but only at 4X.
This is the result of the test with KProbe on the DVD-R after the burn process.
The burn process with CD-R works fine.
Please help me
