LITEON SOHW-1633S Dual Burner Failure

  1. I'm not sure what I did but when I put a cd or dvd in my burner the drive icon changes to a generic and won't recognize the blank media? I put a burn't cd in and it auto plays fine?

    With nothing in the drive is say's "DVD-RW Drive F" in windows explorer. As soon as I put in a blank media it changes to "CD Drive F" and if I click on it I get the error "F is not acessable" I tried 3 different kinds of CD's and a DVD and they all do the same thing. I flashed the firmware .. and nothings changed?

    Help Please :eek:

    Blank Media has no identifers or filesystem for windows to recognize.
    You should only be concerned that windows recognizes what is on that media after it is formatted (RW media) or some data / music / movies are copied to 'write once media'
