Re: DRIVER NEEDED: LiteOn Technology DVDRW SOHW-8125 (Windows XP Professional) [IDE]
I do have capable software. I have been using Nero for years , even tried roxio and some other freebies, ended up having more problems with software compatibilities. The drive works for the most part, especially with normal CD functions but writing a disc underruns 99 out of 100 times. I have no problem reading a dvd or copying with DVD Xcopy, but get nowhere with anything else like Real. I have tried everything from different media to new ASPI layers and the only thing I ever come up with is that my DVD-RW drive has the same windows generic driver that my CD-R drive uses. If it may provide any clue another oddity is everytime the drive fails, afterwards device manager says they are both diconnected from the computer, even though they will still work (as they would have).The only thing I have not tried is the correct driver because I can't find it for my model. 812S is the closest and it just tells me not to continue...current model is 8125. The first setup of my PC was without a hitch, but then I needed a re-format, and couldn't find the drivers disk. please help
