I actually bought the same external Liteon DVD writer about a year ago. I was not able to test whether it works not because there was a problem with my computer. I then try to update my computer with a bigger size of hard-disk and tried to write a CD on this external Liteon DVD, but it did not work at all.
I tried to check and found that the actual drive speed is only 4x, not 16x as mentioned on the web. Moreover the software that came with is has 8x of minimum writing speed.

Can anyone imagine this problem?
I bought it hoping to be able to write any DVD and in fact it does not even work for writing a CD.
So, I think the best is do not ever try to buy this product especially with this Brand "Liteon".

Thank you

: : Hello,

: : My daughter's IBM thinkpad laptop DVD has packed up so I purchased a Liteon USB external DVD rewriter to replace it. (floppy drive still ok)
: : The laptop is running Win 98 and Windows detects a "USB Mass storage device" and attempts to find a driver. It can't find one so asks for the supplied CD - which of course I cannot load!
: : I have tried all of the following to no avail :-

: : 1. Copying the "win 98 USB Driver" folder and contents to floppy and selecting "A" drive as holding driver. Win reports "no suitable driver found"

: : 2. Manually selecting "generic cd" from windows driver options - still no joy.

: : 3. Trying to locate driver to dowload on Liteon's website (model not listed, even though new).

: : 4. Contacting Liteon support via email (no reply)

: : Help please - she's just started Uni and needs me to sort fast!!

: : regards

: : Derek
