Re: burner doesnt recognize CD's

Is this a new device? were there any updates on your compter recently? if any of this is correct, you should install new drivers. if this doesnt help, and you aren't capable of dismantling the CD and check its lens, try installing the CDrom on another computer, thats the best way to determine if the problem is with the CD itself or not.

How can i make my Lite-on-SOHR-5238s CD-RW burner read and burn stuff on a DVD+R/DVD-R? Cause when i put it in my computer doesnt recognize it.

Hi Justin If it's a CD-RW burner then you can't burn any DVDs in it. You need to get a DVD burner instead - they are very cheap now.

Have you taken a CD that you have burned to another computer, to see if the other computer can read the CD?

Rather than spending $50 to $75 to have a qualified computer technician try to trouble-shoot the problem, spend $40 to $50 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Does not recognize disk

* the disk you're inserting is not "empty" -- try it on a different computer;
* you should try a different manufacturer of "blank" disks;
* you need to upgrade the "firmware" inside your CD-writer, to recognize more brands of "blank" media;
* the CD-reader is malfunctioning -- when you "cancel" the burn-attempt, and insert a commercially-produced program CD or commercially-produced audio CD, can those disks be properly read?
* you have two CD/DVD devices in your computer, and you're inserting the "blank" disk into the "wrong" device.

Cd will not read or write

What does it say when it fails?  Try using a much slower burn speed.

Lite-on DVD R/W combo LH-20A1L BLO5 Blank discs not recognized

Have you checked device manager to see if you have a yellow checkmark on your DVD./CD drives? if ok, sounds to me like the maker of the LH-20A1l BLO5 either needs to fix your problem or replace it. The Nero 7 should enable it to work correctly.
