New LiteOn DH20A3H

Ok before i get into this yes i’ve searched and searched this entire site for a fix for my problem.
This is my my 2nd brand new LiteOn DVD-RW i’ve tried but to no avail i get the same problem and error with either i tried.
Installed windows recognizes it just fine , its in my device manager etc. Now here comes the real problem…while it will read my old burned memorex CD-RW disk , it will not read any other kinds of disk.
Acts like its trying to , windows takes about 10 minutes before it comes up with a error “Windows cannot read from this disk. The disk might be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is not compatible with windows.”

Any ideas would be much appreciated as i’ve exhausted myself trying to fix this problem.

Check that DMA is on and that you are using a 80 wire ide cable.
