Liteon40122 won't recognise blank media.

By azeem ·
I have a Liteon 40122 USB 2.0 CD burner on my pc which has w2k + 450MHz pIII + 256MB ram + USB 1 (I guess)port. The connection to pc is via USB 2.0 adapter cable.

My liteon reports all blank media as "Bad medium - error reading CD information".
Do I need a special driver to make the liteon work with my pc?

If so, then where can I get it from?

Thanks
Az

AZ, does it work at all? Your pc needs a 2.0 usb port to connect it to. 2.0 will run 1.0 devices but 1.0 will not run 2.0 devices so either you need a card added with 2.0 usb ports or i'ld think nothing would work for you especially trying to write to the device.

well, i would expect it to not be able to read from blank, unformatted media. so are you getting this error when attempting to burn? or in Windows explorer?
more details please? if it used to work and now it doesn't, are you using audio blanks? trya plain old 640MB data cd. if that works, you need to hike over to liteon website for firmware/and or driver update...good luck

The error message varies from software to software. If you software does not see recorded CDs as bad media then you it is an anomaly that you could live with especially that you know that the CD is blank.
