I've been currently ( september 2006) searching the web for Optorite. The searches show it as www.optorite.com but obviously is not functional.
I have difficulty with the Optorite DD0405 drive. It will only read and write dvd's but not the cd's (neither read nor write).
nero shows it as supposedly functional for all discs cd & dvd but will not function in the cd mode ( read or write).
The drive shows in Windows XP only as a Generic drive. So , I suspect that the firmware must need to be updated to show it as Optorite rather than Generic.
If anyone out there has a suggestion about this dilemma; I would certainly appreciate you suggestions. Even a hint as to find the information about the Optrite company would be helpful!
