In Jan 2005 I bought a Liteon LVW5101. It was a bit finicky but I did get it to record on to DVD+RW using both the DV (1394) input and the analog input. I used it for a few months and then did not use it for about a year while I finished up my law degree. Now it no longer works. It does not seem to recgnize the disc properly. I emailed Liteon and got the latest firmware which I installed, but it still does the same thing. I wonder if the optical drive itself is screwed.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
