I have a lite on dvd-rw SOHW-1693S. I was infected by some type of virus and programs that I use to write with do not recognize my dvd=rw. Such as windows media player telling me to connect a burner and then restart. I can play dvds and cds but not burn. I downloaded firmware to update it. But it said I had the latest version but I updated it anyway. But still no luck.

Have you tried the burn function...after temporarily moving the optical device to a different system?

I dont have a different system to move it to. I thought about unpluging it from my system and uninstalling and then reinstalling. Just havent gotten the time to take it apart yet.

It doesn't have to be your system.

A work system...a friend's system...a neighbor's...all you are doing is installing it for a few minutes to conduct a simple comparison of functionality.

If that's the case, I'd recommend just buying a new drive for $30. I had a drive that ceased it's burn functionality awhile back and just replaced it eventually.
