LTR-40125W Stopped Writing - Help!

#1

Ok - I know that I’m behind the times & STILL writing CDs, but this sucker is only about 18mos old & I have only written about 40 CDs in that time. It’s too young to die.

I noticed an intermittent problem about 6 mos ago - figured it was bad media. So, I upgraded my Nero & reflashed my EEPROM with the latest stuff. (WS0B)

Now it won’t write at all.

The first error message from part of the Nero error log is at the bottom of this post. (I also attached the full log file.)

It mentions something like “Invalid Write State: LITE-ON LTR-40125W\H0 T1”. I can’t find this as a Nero error code nor for LiteOn.

Any Help???
Should I try to re-flash? Shold I go back to my old f/w version? (which I no longer have…)
Stop using Nero? Buy a version of Nero?
Pat my stomach & rub my head?

I searched the forums and saw some similar problems, but not their solutions.

… or do I now own a very fast doorstop?
Thanks
The chuffer
