I have ordered a Verbatim 48x12x48x online. It should arrive tomorrow. How to check if it is a Lite-on one before opening the box? Does Verbatim make any Lite-on cdrw drives?
From the outside of the Verbatim box, you can't tell what you have inside. The only way to determine what drive you have is to install it into the computer and then run Nero's Infotool on the drive to see what firmware it uses. From the firmware number, we can determine who made your drive. Verbatim has never used Lite-On drives for their 48x models, so there is almost no chance of your drive being a Lite-On.
