I have the liteon 48x24x48x16 combo drive and i've been having a few problems with it lately. when i put in a cdr to check the manufacturer in nero cd speed, it will not let me find out who the manufacturer is, it won't display anything (although i know they're TY) but this function just doesn't seem to work anymore.
I've also read through the forums that liteon dvd drives are best at ripping dvds, however there's been a some dvds (with a light scratches) that i've tried to rip but i get ripping errors while it rips fine on a friend's dvd-rom.
anyone know what could cause these problems and if I can fix them somehow?
the only thing i've done to the drive is disable region check (i can't seem to enable it again either) from ltnrpc.
would upgrading the firmware help?
