Question about Lite On LH-20A1H DVD RW Dual Layer Burner
DVD Burner won't recognize disks that I have burned with other units.
There's nothing wrong with the disks - they are clean, unscratched DVD +R, single layer 8x and 16x Data Disks, and they are readable with every DVD ROM I've got ( including some pretty old ones - 1998).
The unit functions perfectly in all other ways, but it just won't recognize about half of my recordings.
[I get the "Please Insert Disk" Message]
After I realized this, and verified that my disks could in fact be read with just about any old DVD ROM, I exchanged the unit for another where I purchased it, only to find that I had the same problem with the replacement unit.
I tried upgrading the firmware by downloading the firmware upgrade entitled: "Match More Media" [the only firmware available for this unit].
It downloads as a Zip file named: "DR20LL06", and after unzipping, it's called "LL06.exe". When executed, I get an error message informing me that:
"No matched drive detected!
This utility is only for LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1H drive.
Detected drives: 1-0-1-0 D:LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1H LL0A"
LITE-ON support division seems to be virtually non-existant, as well.
While I can't promise you'll find help there, Lite-On does have a support site:
BTW, the rating 'Inappropriate' that you gave to dna_killer was itself inappropriate. He may not have cured your current problem but wanted to pass on his own experience with stubborn DVD problems.
Please reserve your use of that rating for responses that clearly are off-topic or just plain stupid.
