Liteon SOHW 1653S stopped writing CDRs

I have been using this writer for about 6 months, no problems. This morning however, I tried to write a CDR and got an error message. I tried it in both Nero and windows XP write to CD. I then uninstalled it in device manager so that XP would redetect it after bootup and install the drivers fresh. I tried it again - same problem.

The only change to my system recently (as in yesterday), was removing a DVD-ROM drive. Originally the Liteon had been set as master and the other DVD-ROM as Slave. I merely removed the slave drive and left the Liteon as master. It seems happy to play DVD movies, but buring is another matter altogether. I’m not sure if this log that nero generated after the error is useful, but here it is:

cyclone5uk, welcome to cdfreaks :slight_smile:

Can you show us a Nero Infotool report instead. Make sure all options are enabled. Don’t forget the code tags :wink:


report


You’ll also find something about this in the Liteon FAQ. It’s not good news I’m afraid :(.
