When I try to burn CD's or make back up copies, my CDRW starts to brun them but ejects the CD half way through and says something like there was an error in the writting process. I've been having this problem since january and nobody seems to help! Could someone please help!

Sounds to me like a bad CDRW drive. Have you tried a different drive? There could be more behind it than the drive, but it would easiest to try a new drive.

I went to the site and downloaded the firmware with the same numbers as my drive (LTR 48246S) and ran it but an ERROR message pops up saying:
"No match Drive detected! This utility is only for LITE-ON LTR-48246S drive.
Dected Drives: 1-0: LITE-ON LTR 48246S"


I'm a little confused at what I got but maybe there's something else I don't know...

I was have a number of unrelated, random problems with my computer and my CDRW not completing a burn was one of them (only that one wasn't random). I was blaming everything from the burner to Nero to .......

Because of the number of problems I was experiencing (computer freezing randomly, etc.) I replaced the motherboard and power supply and also did a clean reinstall of XP (had to do that with the motherboard replacement). In hindsight, I think one of my big problems was that there were a number of corrupt files and I needed that clean re-install of XP.

Works fine now. This may not narrow it down for you, but my point is that I didn't have to change out the burner.

Good luck!

I can't afford to do a reinstall cause my burner won't let me back up my files.
