Hi, ive been having a problem lately with a LiteOn LTR-4025S. Seems when a program (CD Info tool for example) tries to access the drive, the computer reboots and when it comes back up, it says it has recovered from a fatal error. I tried uninstalling software, and even tried it on a fresh WinXP install, same thing happens.
The drive is attached to a Maxtor UDMA 100 controller card (the 4 slots on the motherboard are full with drives already) and everything seems ok with windows (it sees the drive and reports its working properly).
The strange part is I have a Yamaha 2100S installed, and it used to have this same problem. If you used CDRWin for example, and tried to write at 8X, 10X or 12X, your get rebooted with the Fatal Error message.
The Yamaha drive seemed ok after a format and reinstall of everything on C:, so I tried that for the LiteOn, but it didn't help.
I've tried drivers for the controller card, updated the cdrw's firmware, aspi drivers and all .. still nothing seems to help.
If anyone has any idea, it would be a great help.
Sorry if this has been posted baout before, I searched but didnt find anything. I'm not even totally sure WHAT to search for
