I am a real newbie.
I have been reading this thread and think I have the same problem with my Lite-On LDW - 401S. I have tried Nero and Easy CD-DVD Creator v6 and the drive starts but never burns. I have the drive set up as secondary IDE, not slaved. (I also upgraded to the latest version of Firmware for this drive).
I saw on another thread that replacing the IDE cable solved the problem? Can it be that easy?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
One frustrated rookie. Thanks.
