    Not to mention the tens (hundreds?) of thousands Sony DVD recorders which are re-badged Lite-ons oh that's cool. Yeah it used to be a solid little 40 dollar burner I got from Wal Mart. Just shocked it went out so quick. I got a cd burner works great, manufactured in 2000! I guess I just got a weak made device.

    As a last resort, I took it apart and cleaned the lens and still has same issue. Are all Liteon products junk or did I just happen to get a weakly manufactured product? I didn't damage it as far as I know.

    damn that sucks, it was manufactured in 2006, got it last year at the store so it's like a year old, a little over. what a piece of sh*t

    Just got finished testing difference discs with the drive in another machine just now, and yeah same problem so something is mechanically wrong with this hardware somewhere down the line... Should I pitch it or.... any servicable parts worth it? What are some good DVDRW drives nowadays??

    Like i said, the drive isn't recognizing any DVD movies, blank DVDs, or previously burned DVDs. It does not recognize burned audio discs but does read manufactured CDs and CD-ROMs.

    trying to open up the raid controller software that was added to the start menu with the new driver update...

    Well I consider myself kind of smart with computers and "Lightning UK!" & "Cynthia" confused me about this talk about the Controller. I'm not real sure what that is really, honest. But um anyway I did download Lightning UK!'s FTP .39 JMicron driver... and that didn't help this problem. I noticed it did add software for RAID systems on the Start Menu, but I don't have a Redundant Array Setup... I was doing some thinking, pulled up some information about the Hard Drive and DVD drive, more specifically the Transfer Modes... I'm thinking maybe they have to be on the same Transfer Mode... So here is what modes they support: WD1200BB hard drive supported transfer mode: PIO Mode 4 DMA Mode 2 Ultra DMA Mode 4 LH-16W1P supports these transfer modes: 100MB/s (Mode 5 Ultra ATA) 66.6MB/s (Mode 4 Ultra ATA) 33.3 MB/s (Mode 2 Ultra ATA) 16.6 MB/s (Mode 4 PIO) 16.6 MB/s (Mode 2 multi-word DMA) Now knowing what transfer modes these devices support, and they run on the same bus.... My theory is the transfer rates should be on the same level. Maybe I should set the BIOS configuration for both devices' Transfer Modes to DMA Mode 2 since that is the only one they are compatible? Is this way of thinking incorrect? I don't know. In conclusion: Somewhere down the line, there's some kind of interrupt going on. Where my drive works properly on a seperate bus, not on the same as the hard drive running Windows. I tried turning the ATAPI service both started and disabled, neither makes a difference. Tried changing Transfer Modes, no difference. But the current setup I have where the HD and the DVD drive is on the same IDE bus, the drive will read all CD-ROMs fine, music cds, but not any burned discs whether it's movie, data, music... And also no DVD's. It normally will read all discs. Any outside ideas? I'm starting to think that it's impossible for HD running Windows & my specific DVD drive is impossible to run properly on the same bus. I heard in forums that my HD jumper should be set to Master, and DVD set to Slave. I have tested both switching master and slave, and it doesn't matter. They work the same as long as they are set different than the other, and also: the location of the plug you insert doesn't make a difference. It's all communicable. So my HD set to Save or Master would work, as long as the other device on the IDE bus was set to the opposite. It doesn't matter which direction the IDE cable is attached, the way my case is setup with the HD real low, my IDE is technically backwards, with MASTER (on cable) is connected to the motherboard, SLAVE is connected to my DVD and MOBO is connected to my HD... this doesn't matter, just to throw that out there in case you didn't know. I've done it many times before, it's just a transversal wire that connects devices, and contains no mechanical parts inside if you take on apart!

    I actually have all my mobo drivers updated via "Driver Magician" The PSU is strong enough definitely, I don't have very many peripherals. I even tried disabling the service "ATAPI", because I read in a Nero Burning ROM forum that service was useless. That didn't work. I also tried changing the Transfer Mode from Ultra DMA 2 to PIO only.

    Does anybody understand why a hard drive and a cd burner works fine on the same IDE cable, but a DVD burner and a HD reads audio and cd rom discs, but does not read DVD or burned discs. It works fine on a seperate IDE (different computer)

    Actually I found out, it's not reading any DVD's. My DVDRW drive make is Liteon, model LH-16W1P. It's actually on the same IDE line as my hard drive. I am thinking this is causing interruption. Even though this setup works with a different drive, it's an HP CDRW, model C4495. I double checked to make sure one is set to master and the other slave. I have tried switching the master and slave and no difference. Cable Select does not boot. The Liteon DVD firmware is up to date. I will soon get a new Hard Disk to fit my motherboard upgrade to SATA2, but until then I have to daisy chain my HD and cd drive on one IDE cable. There is only one on this mobo, but 6 SATA2 inputs. I need to upgrade my hard drive, and throw this one in my modded Xbox!! IDE is junk. My motherboard has an IDE Controller to prevent interrupt, but it seems to not work with a DVDRW drive, only CDRW.

  14. First I select burn image file to disc, choose the file and it supposedly will start burning, but it's constantly waiting in the Que list and doesn't burn. Near the bottom of this software window, in red it reads Device Not Ready (No Reference Position Found). *I checked my device Manager. (Hardware Tab of system properties) checked for any unknown devices not working, my device was properly listed under CD/DVD and says no problems found in the driver properties for my DVD device. I have burned before with Magic Disc and other software, Nero, power iso, etc. I have never been able to burn with this software. Maybe it's possible it's clashing with other burning software? I do not have any other processes running, no background processes by any burning software that would be accessing the disc. I even tried disabling my virtual drives, thinking they were problematic to this drive, but nothing so far.
