My Liteon 52327S QS0C suddenly stopped recognizing any media - either blank CDR or pressed CD. After inserting the disk, the yellow light blinks for about 10-15 seconds and then stops. Windows Explorer or any other program (Nero Speed/ROM) cannot read any disk.
Running Liteon SmartBurn software results in the following message:
Drive Type = CD-RW
Disc Type = NO MEDIA
When running Nero Info tool, everything seems fine: drive is recognized, DMA ON, ASPI is OK.
I also have PLextor 1210A writer and that one reads media OK, so it shoudn't be a software issue....
Is there any diagnostic program to tell me if the drive has died (other than SmartBurn) ?
THe drive is about 1.5 - 2 years old. Windows 2000 SP4.
I recently upgraded from Nero 18.104.22.168 to the latest 22.214.171.124 but again, this I think is just a coincedence...
