I bought the liteon 20x dvd writer about two mths ago, which had the nero 7 essentials disc with it. I installed everything,including the nero 7 essentials disc and completed burning cd's. now when i go to burn anything it is telling me that it has expired when there was noithing that said it was a trial run,and noithing written to say it was a trial run. please help me as i dont belive i should have to pay out other $89.95 for my system when i have already spent money to install the liteon dvd writer 20x

Your only solution would be to do an internet search for open source dvd authoring software. If you just want to copy and burn dvd's there is a lot of open source software, you just have to try them out to see what fits your needs. Open source is free.

    The reason I said what I said was that if it says it has expired there is nothing more you can do other than purchase it.

    I intalled model iHAS324-32 Y to replace iHDS 11807-4 and vista wont run with it. Tells me to uninstall it and contact manufacturer. I uninstalled it and system works fine again without the disc drive.


    Is your vista a 64 bit OS? If so this dvd-writer is compatible with 32 bit OS. You may need to upgrade the firmware for it. Maybe this link can help LiteOn firmware search.
    I've upgraded firmware for a dvd writer already with no bad consequences but I have crashed one of my motherboards trying to do the same. So if you're not comfortable doing it, get the people you bought it from or some techie to do it for you. Hope this helps

    Write error message with liteon dvd writer..


    I had the same issue with a liteon DVD drive I had. It worked fine and then one day it couldn't write to a DVD if I paid it to. I troubleshooted it for a few days, installed all the latest updates and patches and still nothing. From what I could tell, it baiscally died. So fortunately Liteons are relatively cheap so I just went out and got another LiteOn and it worked just fine. I would consider purchasing a new Drive.

    Lightscribe


    Hi, the lightscribe is a great feature, its part of the nero software that should have came with the liteon dvd-rw. if you go into nero you should see a lightscribe label part, just click on that and put the disc unside down, and you should be good.

    Hope this helps

    NERO ESSENTIALS is full of 30 day trials which I found infuriating!!


    I am sorry to hear about your troubles.

    It sounds as though LiteOn bundled a limited-time trial of Nero with their hardware. This is a normal/routine
    condition of hardware sales. Most certainly the purchase price of the DVD drive did not include the cost of
    a fully licensed copy of Nero's DVD authoring software. Retailers often assume that consumers are aware and accustomed to the workings of such bundles, which often is not the case.

    I am assuming you are using Microsoft Windows XP as your operating system; please let me know if you are not. XP is capable of authoring CDs, but not DVDs so you will need to either purchase a commercial application or try one of these free applications:

    Burn4Free
    AVS Disc Creator
    DeepBurner Free Version

    If your computer is a Dell manufactured computer you can obtain DVD authoring software for free from http://support.dell.com by providing your Dell Service Tag number.

    Software problem


    Nero needs to be uninstalled (using Nero Clean Tool) and then reinstalled after you have added a new lightscribe DVD drive. To correctly uninstall Nero go to Nero website to download Clean Tool application specific to your version of Nero. http://www.nero.com/nero7/enu/Clean_Tools.html
