I'm totally new to this forum (as in 10 minutes), but thought it's general content was excellent, so let's hope you can help me with an issue my with my new DVD burner, a Sony DW-D23A.
Reads and writes CD's and CD-R's perfectly.
Reads DVD's perfectly.
Here's the problem.................will not recognize brand-new DVD+RW's
I've looked through all the old forums and it appears this may be a re-badged Liteon 1653S.
I've connected to the Liteon site and downloaded the latest drivers / firmware, but when I try and install it, I get an error message saying that I have a Sony DVD so it will not update. I've tried deleting the Sony tag but no luck.
The Sony site itself is pants, doesn't even list this as a burner they produce, let alone provide updates for.
I ran the Nero Info Tool and it lists the firmware as CYS1, which other threads show is obsolete.
I think I'm heading in the right direction, but how can I finish the process off and get my DVD burner recognizing, and writing DVD+RW's.
