Hello, I just bought a Lite-on SOHR-5238S from circuit city the other day to replace my old sony cd burner that crapped out. I installed just like I was supposed to and windows will only recognize it as a normal cd-rom drive. Whats can I do to fix this? I’ve already tried the registry thing on the microsoft website, doesnt work.

c’mon, does anyone have anything to say on this matter???

Does Nero recognise it as a CD writer?

nope

Is your MB an nVidia or VIA based board? If so, are you using their IDE drivers? If so, uninstall them, get rid of them and use the Standard Microsoft ATA/IDE drivers. See if that makes a difference.

Sorry, I had the same problem with my son’s CD-RW and that was the fix. Good luck.
