6 months ago i bought a SOHW-812S DVD burner. I updated to Firmware US0Q soon after the Firmware-release. So no patching - everything is original ( i saw no use in patching since it worked fine for me and DL is far to expensive)
It workt until yesterday. Now it only reads CDs and only burns CDs … no DVDs(neither reading nor burning, it doesn`t matter if it is a burned or pressed/bought DVD).
Last program i used was Nero 22.214.171.124, i tried to burn a dvd and as i always do, it tried to compare the result … and didnÂ´t find the just burned dvd.
Reading the nero log i found a “power calibration error”.
I tried …
the Burner in another Computer (old amd 500 on msi-board) - just in case something is wrong with my usual box (i changed the motherboard recently to a ecs k7vta3 5.o)
other cables /ide-cables … flat/round … other power-connector
Secondary Master - Single / Secondary Slave with Pioneer DVD-113
a lens cleanig disk - an old one for cd … but i think it doesn`t matter
Disable onboard raid / failsafe Bios config
tried to boot Linux - DVD /one on burned DVD one on bought DVD
… everything with the same result … the LiteOn tries to access the DVD … seeks a minute … and fails.
But … it reads CD-Roms, CD-Audio, CD-R, and NO CD-RW either.
So what happend to my LiteOn … does anyone have a clue, or do i have to return it.
Thanks in advance,
ps. sorry for my bad english
