Write error at 82%! (Lite-On LH-20A1H)

[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On LH-20A1H. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi, I am having problems with my Lite-on LH-20A1H dvd RW.

At first I was getting a write error while trying to burn some DVDs but then noticed that the ‘write’ error was occurring at 82%. I am using the latest drivers and have tried to burn at the slowest speeds but it keeps on making coasters. I swapped the rw from an old pc and it burns perfectly. Any ideas?

Drivers have nothing to do with that.

What media have you used?

Verbatim DVD-R and Datawrite DVD-R

Maybe you need to clean the drive (lens).

Now you mention it, it’s never been cleaned, thanks!
