    Greetings, I was just wondering if anyone has a solution for my Blue ray writer (LiteOn) not reading CDs. It is supposed to be backwards compatible all the way through CDs. It is less than a year old. It doesn't stumble on DVDs just CDs (when I need to install drivers or new hardware with software on a CD. The writer is just over a year old. I have only used it about 10 times (never wrote to it yet on blue ray, DVD or CD). I have flashed it to the current 'bios' using LiteOn's flash system. I don't know why this is having a problem as it appears fully functional in device manager. I'm using Vista Ultimate 64, 8 gigs Ram, with all updates current. I am getting tired of having to boot up a sister machine just to play a CDROM for installing purposes. Anyone have an idea or fix for me? Thanx in advance.

    The reader should handle all the different format disks on it's own, no drivers needed.
    Test it in another computer and if it's still dodgy have it replaced under warranty.

    cheers, Paul
