[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On SDW-431SX. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello everybody
Could somebody help to get back dataDVD writing capabilities please.
I have decent desktop P4 (DVDR and CDRW drives, 80G HD) running XPhome. Everything runs fine exept for recent problem with USB LiteON SDW-431SX(connected via USB1) when trying to burn data DVD on DVD±R or DVD±RW. No problems with CD burns.
When I burn new disk(DVDR or DVDRW),the software says the process has been completed, but the burned disk is invisible either on my machine or on another.
If I try to erase such screwed DVD+RW, I get :
1-no disk in the drive
2-erasing appears to be happening, but I cannot write on that disk afterwards.
3-Windows explorer freezes

So far I used NTI 7 Platinum, Nero 7. ExpressBurn. Before each change I cleaned up with Uniblue registry cleaner.
Disks used DVD-R LiteOn, DVD+R Tesco,
DVD+RW (Philips, Maxell,PCworld)

The most anoying thing is that DVD RW becomes unusable after just 1 burn!!!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Could be the drive has seen the light of day. Time for a new one, maybe?

When you say USB1 do you mean USB1.0?

Also, the drive is over 4 yrs old and doesnt support the other functions of smartburn.

pfloyd1, I don’t really need anything “smart”. I need double vanilla, bog standard data (doc, pdf, mp3 etc ) back up on DVD. Until recent it worked like a dream with NTI and then I succumbed to the temptation to try Nero 8…… I suspect it’s a software issue rather then hardware, but I could be wrong. Is there any diagnostic tool to get a definitive answer?
Does the data on error codes I listed make any sense to you?
Cheers
