DVD Writer won't read after overburn! Am I doomed?

I was using Nero 8 Burning Rom to burn an audio CD which was slightly over the 80min limit, I think 84ish. Nero asked me if I wanted to try overburn to burn the disc, but warned me that it could damage the disc or the drive. I did a quick google search and figured it would be O.K. or worse case I would loose the disc.

Well, the burn failed, and now my CD drive won't read audio CD's, or game disks. Just treats everything as a blank CD.

I have the log from Nero after the failed overburn if that helps. Is there any way to recover my CD drive?

Its a LITE-ON|LH-20A1S SATA (black) if that helps. Thanks for the help!


I also posted this in the CD/DVD forum, but I figured I'd post it here as well, as there is much more traffic here. Thanks!

  1. If the cd drive is still under warranty it's time for an RMA.
    If not it's time for a new one.
    Don't mention the overburn incident.
