Unhappy HELP!COMBO Drive will not read CD-Rs


I just built my new system and my Lite On COMBO Drive will not read CD-Rs. It read manufacturer CDs fine but it will not read burnt CDs. It hangs the system up and then it shows nothing in Explorer. Regular files on a CD-R shows up fine but it hangs awhile before it shows them in Explorer.

Another problem is that it isn't playing DVDs. It plays the beginning with the copyright stuff but then it goes blank and just hangs there. I watched a DVD movie once and it was fine but now it isn't.

Please do NOT cross post the same message in other forums. Thanks!=====MicroBell

My system consists of:

Athlon XP 2500+ Barton
Asus A78NX-E Deluxe MOBO
Asus FX5200 VideoSuite Card
120 GB SATA Maxtor Hard Drive
Lite On LTC48161H Combos DVD/CDRW
450W PS
Hercules 7.1 Sound Card
Windows XP Pro
PowerDVD software

Have you checked if there is a firmware update?

I have the latest firmware and I also tried uninstalling the drive and Nero and letting XP install it after the reboot. Still doesn't work.
