I recently built-my-own box with parts from NewEgg and got an OEM LiteOn SHW-160P6S 16x DVD and CD burner.
Windows recognizes the drive just fine (even says “DVD-RW Drive” in windows explorer) but can only read from the drive. Windows Media Player claims “No CD or DVD Burner detected.” and Windows Explorer will nto let me drag-and-drop files to the drive. I’ve patched to the latest firmware provided by LiteOn as of this evening.
I spoke briefly with a tech support rep on LiteOn’s website and he suggested it will not work with Windows Explorer/Media Player and I would need Nero (which comes with retail drive, not OEM) or some other 3rd party burning software. Is this true?
