updating the firmware fixed the problem - turns out I was burning DVDs just fine, but the drive wasn't recognizing themMiles Fidelman wrote:Hi Folks, I have a debian box and a Lite-On SHM-165PS cd/dvd drive.I'm having a devil of a time burning bootable DVDs - they seem to burn, be readable, but when I try to boot, the system crunches a bit, the drive lite flashes, then boots from the hard drive. (It boots from CDs just fine.)- is that likely diagnosis?I like the firmware better, but it depends on your method of *creating* the ISO images. non-bootable images are a more common problem than book type.
pulled the drive, stuck it in my kids' windows machine, ran the flash utility, put the drive back in my tower - and now it boots just fine
thanks all Miles
