At work we have just received a batch of 1673S from our supplier as they could not supply us with our usual order of LGs and Pioneers.
The problem is, this week we have put them in 3 new systems - all of which have not even been able to complete installing Windows XP with them. As soon as it gets to T-9 mins, you get an error that it can not read the disc.
We have tried different discs, same problem. When we wack in an old CD-ROM - no problem, a straight LG DVD/CD-RW combo - no problem.
When you do get Windows on after using another drive, when you go to play a DVD on the LiteOn it just dies.
I have tried both JS01 and JS02 firmwares.
Do I just have a bad batch?
