New system, WinXP with the LTR-52327S as master and a DVD-rom as slave on IDE 2.
I love to use Nero for burning and have never had a problem with it before on my old system (win2k).
Now, with this new drive, using both Nero Express (that came bundled with the drive) or a demo version of Nero 6.something, my drive will not recognize blank media.
The drive will read other cd’s (I’ve tried only music cd’s so far)
I’ve searched some and can’t find a good solution.
I did go to the lite-on site and downloaded a firmware upgrade, which I’ve run several times (file is called R52QS0C), to no avail. - results are the same.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I’m a total newbie. If this question is newb-forum worthy, then so be it, but the fact remains is that I still need help.
(I see a warning about a firmware upgrade possibly rendering drive useless for burning for this model in a sticky at top of lite-on forum, but fact is that I was having trouble with this beforehand too, so I’m not any worse off yet)
