Hello, im new to this website.
I just bought a new dvd rw drive. Its a Liteon drive, idk what model.
My problem is that, when I insert either a cd OR dvd, into my drive, and i open my drive from my computer, some of the files are missing in the cd. this one time I opened a cd and only had ONE file... some blablabla.tmp file... if all of the files DO show up onto the cd... its corrupted any ideas?
also. in my computer it shows as DVD-RAM
in device manager : (i took pics)
I would first start to see that you have the newest chipset drivers for your mb. if you dont the cd-rom might not read right.
the other issue could be a filter issue in windows. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461
when u burn something, always burn at a very slow speed. Try burning some files at a slow speed and see the results. Which burning software r u using. Try using another software. Also change ur sata cable and ur sata port.
In Windows XP , there r issues regarding DVD drive. Like ur case it also sometimes showed up as DVD-RAM instead of DVD-RW while i was using XP. Cant remember how i fixed that?
dude... did I say im having trouble burning? no no...i havent tried burning anything Yet..dont have any blank cds.. and the cds i got arent burnt from me i bought em... it worked before on my older drives (not working now)
