I have an external, 8X, USB2 DVD Writer from LiteOn, Model: LDW-851SX. I got lots of troubles when burning DVD Movies, it always gives me error in all softwares I tried (Nero, CloneDVD, Sonic RecordNow, Alcohol, DVD Decrypter, … etc.), using different DVD â€“R media like, Princo,Memorix, Starmedia.). I upgraded the firmware to the latest one from LiteOn website (GS0H), and I still have the same problem.
Upto now, the only software I’m using is DVD decrypter, it gives an I/O error, something like ‘semaphore timed out’, then I keep pressing retry, then retry and after some retries, it works and goes successfully, the end movie can be played in some dvd players.
Is this a common problem in this external DVDWR drive? Is there any solution? What is the recommended Patch firmware to try?
By the way, I’m using Win2K, in 3G Intel processor, 512M Ram.
