I'm desperate here. Ok here's the story I have an external, USB, LITEON DVD burner model SOHW-1673SX I've had it for a while and it's always worked just fine. Today, for some odd reason, it decided "hey I don't want to be a DVD burner anymore. I'll read DVDs and CDs just fine and I might even burn CDs, but not DVDs" If I stick in a blank DVD+R or DVD-R (tried different brands), the drive's name (in My Computer) goes from DVD-RW drive to CD Drive. When I try to burn something with Nero or DVD Shrink, it fails. One time a failed disc, after re inserting it, had part of the file name of what I tried burning written on the DVD but that was it. I've already tried different firmwares, it's currently at it's most recent firmware (Drivers are nonexistant, its plug n play I guess). Tried system restore, same thing... Tried reinstalling Nero, same thing... I really don't know what to do Now if I try burning something under like 500MB (in other words, a CD sized file) it works fine... but over that it won't ever start burning..
