I have a LiteON SOHW 1673S DVD/CD burner, which I just tried to use to burn a set of backup disks with Dantz Retrospect Express. After an hour on the first disk and very near the capacity of it, I got an error -206, which said that it had failed either due to bad media or a dirty or damaged head. I ran my cleaning disk, and then ran Nero CD-DVD Drive speed on a movie DVD. That sailed through all of the phases of testing, until the last one for CPU utilization at 8x. It then also popped an error saying: "L-EC uncorrectable error (031105). I Googled for this, and all that I found indicated that the drive was probably dying. I just sent an email to LiteON tech support, but judging from my experience from other companies, I may have to wait some time for an answer, and then it may not be of much use. I'm really hoping that someone here can shed some light on this.
