SHM-165P6S Problem reading cd-r's

Hai,
Well Quiet some months ago my Liteon SHM-165P6S gradually didnt like to read cdr media. It burns and reads dvdr media fine. I had updated the firmware to MSOR recently prior to this strange behaviour. Would reverting back to the previous firmware fix this problem?

Hi and Welcome!

please try if you can boot off a bootable CD disc. An old Win98 disc is fine, better even are live operating system discs like BartPE or a live Linux disc.
If that does fail, it might help to clean the drive.

I first noticed the problem when i was attempting to reinstall windows xp pro off of a bootable disc. it would get so far into the setup process then fail. It wont even boot from a cdr now:S And yes i have tried cleaning the lens.

Time to buy something new unless the drive is still under warranty.
