I've got a LITEON SOHW - 1653S drive and sometimes it works ok, sometimes it doesn't!!
When burning a cd (data or audio) using Nero (any version from 6.0 upwards I've tried), the progress bar will get to 100% and the burner will 'supposedly' begin the lead out procedure but then does nothing else. The drive continues to spin at full speed, the LED on the front continues to flash and the progress bar continues to say 100%. The drive will not stop and I can't remove the cd. The only way to stop the drive and therefore remove the cd is to shutdown and re-boot the pc. Anyone got any ideas what might be wrong and what I can do about it?
Incidentally, if it helps in diagnosis:
Gigabyte GA - K8VT800 motherboard
AMD Athlon 3200+ 64 bit processor
1Gb DDR400 RAM
I have updated the firmware to the latest version on LITEON website and even upgraded to Nero 220.127.116.11 and neither have helped
Any help would be gratefully received. My apologies if this plea is in the wrong forum.
