did you not get any software with the drive ?
I thought LiteON's were shipped with Nero...

I have the model below (40x12x48) and I use Nero to great effect ! I can't think whats up, does windows find your drive correctly in the Device manager ?

if you are using clonecd or similar software and also have installed the intel application accelerator you need to uninstall the intel accelerator ..

Just download the latest patches for Nero and InCD <A HREF="http://www.nero.com/en/content/download.html#download" target="_new">here</A> and Nero will work perfectly. Throw away CD Mate!

I'm confused ?
You used to have a 40x ? so you went out and bought a 48x ?? the performance gain is about 20/30 seconds ??? seems pointless.

But you say you flashed the drive ? which drive did you flash, I may have misunderstood you no offence in advance if I have - BUT
If you have flashed your 40x to be 48x this is impossible and will not work, there are new features in the 48x and it works using different technology burning at a constant speed all the way through unlike the previous drives that burn a number of sectors at different speeds.

Yes, he seems to have flashed his 40X burner with the 48X firmware. This works perfectly. Phyisically, the 40X Lite-On and the 48X Lite-On are identical. The 40X merely has P-CAV disabled and uses Zone-CLV instead. However, simply flashing on the 48X BIOS will allow it to use MT. Rainer, P-CAV and burn at 48X perfectly. I can personally attest to that because I've done it myself. :wink:

Crikey !
well I have that exact drive...

so your telling me shops are selling the 40x at £54 and the 48x at £70 and the only difference is in the ROM ?
wow, I am gonna have to do mine then...
which BIOS for the 48x works and can I go back if it fails ?

Turn off SmartBurn in Nero.

:o ) Yeah all I needed was the latest Nero, I thought I had it, but a newer one had recently come out.

All seems good, but my Meida (Rated only for 24x on the box - smartburn rates at 40x) cannot handle 48x and the burn fails with smartburn off at around 60%
