I have had this burner since day one. I also have used several of liggy and dee’s firmwares over the years but now I am having a problem with trying to burn CD’s. No matter what program I use ( nero, WMP…so on…) It always sez “please insert blank media” I can burn DVD’s no problem ( I use dvdfab or I data burn AVI files with Nero ) I dont have any issues with burning a DVD but I can not make a music CD. The drive will not recognize any of the several CD’s Ive tried. One brand, Fuji, is a brand I have been using for a few years and I used to be able to burn with these CD’s but no more. Ive tried Maxell, memorex, fuji, sony to say the least.
I have tried to change the firmware several different times to different firmwares 1W9…1Wa orig…104 orig…121 rpc1. I am not an expert at doing these things by far ( but Liggy and Dee make stuff easy for even me ) and dont understand some things but can anyone help me with this?? Its driving me crazy !!!
No firmware will help, the cd laser is dead.
First of all thank you for answering my question. I did not know
there is a seperate laser for the CD and the DVD?? I guess I need a new burner…oh well. Thanks again.
You should buy a new writer, fix is not possible.
