  1. I've recently got a new computer and put my DVD RW drive into it, its a LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-1693S, and I've been trying to burn DVD's with it and it won't let me, I can burn CD's and read just not burn DVD's and I know its not the brand of DVD's because in my old computer when the drive worked I was using the same brand DVD's , I've tried using NERO and Alcohol 120% and niether will do any good. Here is the log file from Alcohol 120% if it helps:

    are the DVD-R discs certified to run at your recording speed or higher? you can attempt to lower the recording speed and see if that fixes the problem.

    I tried burning at a lower speed with both NERO and 120% and neither worked.


    Here's the Nero log file:

    try updating your burning software to the latest version, as well as updating your burner's drivers and firmware, if not already done so. if that doesn't fix the problem, you're probably dealing with a bad drive.

    Check in the Device Manager to see if your DVD drive is operating in DMA or the slower PIO mode.
