i cannot read CD-R's on the drive with which they were written! they just dont get recognised and if i try to access the drive it returns 'D:\ is not accessible. Incorrect funciton'. Liteon LTR-52246S CD-RW IDE secondary master. Liteon LTN-483S CD-ROM IDE secondary slave. i have reformatted and re-installed windows since i made these CD's using WinISO & Blindwrite on Win2K SP4. I have used these discs on this drive before. Firmware is latest The CD-R's that DONT work on this drive DO work on other drives (incl. CD-ROM drive in besopke computer). Now when i use 'Analyse CD' option in CDRWIN 5.05.001 with one of the non-working discs in the suspect drive it reports 'Session 1 ([bold]CD-XA[/bold])_ Traack 1, Mode: 2, Status: complete' discs that DO work on this drive seem to have 'Session 1 ([bold]CD-ROM[/bold])'. Can my drive suddenly not read CD-XA? Is my CD-RW drive badgered? I am p*ssed off with this problem. Please help if you can, i would help u guys if i knew enough about something.
