It seems I found the right place, so here it is…
I got our families 1st burner (that’s good).
It is a digitalmax 3S163 on sale from office max (that’s bad).
The kids burned a few CD’s, and I got a few CD/DVD RW’s tested with some files, then error. I sent the error report to microsoft, and found there were NERO updates (I had installed the original nero OEM suit and inCD that it came with). As with others in this forum, I now have a shiny new burner and disks to burn, but NO CD’s (audio, RW’s) are read. The computer thinks there is no disk.
So, my question from perusing the forum is:
Will the EEPROM utility restore the original digitalmax info if I patch to a liteon?
I may have a RMA for this disk (hopefully by the end of the month, support is slowwwww), and I’ll want the original info in it if I return it. You know, I wouldn’t want the warranty voided.
Since this is our families first burner, I’d like to get it working, without the downtime if possible.
If the EEPROM will restore the original, can anyone recommend, possibly freeware, software to use instead of NERO, at least until the problem that a number of us seem to have is resolved?
Thanks for your time,
P.S. I’ve tried different versions of nero off the web (can’t reinstall suite, because can’t read disk) and no different. Old CD-ROM bye-bye.
