    I have the same issue! It's the second time in 1.5 years with Lite-on Drives. They are simply Sh1t! The drivers after I uninstall, are auto-installed again only for it to say they are corrupt! So it's probably the Drive itself, as the cables have not been changed in a year and all was well until recently. I'm off to buy a new Drive and definitely not a stupid Lite-on, or should that be Lites-0ff!

If you installed these drives yourself take a look and make sure they're wired up the correct way. If they both run off the same IDE cable make sure that one drive is set to master and the other to slave. XP doesn't need any drivers from any disks it has it's own and they will suffice. The most common fault apart from the master/slave one is the cable is back to front. I.E. the red trace on the wiring harness should plug into pin one on the CD drive. With all drives I've seen this has always been the end closest to the power socket. To locate pin one on the motherboard it's either marked as 1 or the end of the socket for pin one has white mark on it. If your hard drive cable red trace is the lowest pin on the socket so is the IDE2 cable. Or if they are horizontal they would both be the same ends. Another hint is to ensure your IDE2 is enabled in your bios. Tapping the Delete key whilst booting will normally take you to the bios. If after all this you still get corrupt driver messages go to your hardware manager in XP and remove any CD drivers. Close down and reboot and XP should find them again and you should be in business. If your bios is OK and the CD roms wired correctly, there's no other reason they wont work. Unless they're faulty of course. BMW

Does the error messages relate to drivers D and E ? Does they work before properly or did you installed them just now (one of them or both)?

Hello there,

you are right, Win Xp is not Blu-Ray compatible unless you installed UDF reader. UDF reader is a driver which lets you explore Blu-ray and HD-DVD UDF v2.5 disc in Win XP's file explorer.

Click the Link to download UDF v2.5 driver

1. After downloading extract the file to any folder.

2. Right click on thdudf.inf and choose Install.

3. Once this is done, reboot your machine.

4. After reboot your system will be able to read the new UDF 2.5 file system recognition.

5. If you want your system to read video files, you have to download codecs.

Codec Link download.


Thank you for using FixYa.

Hopefully this information helps.

Yes, you can no longer downgrade, the issue is drivers and hardware. XP cannot run the new hardware. In the early days you could get drivers, but now most downgrades will lack lots of functionality. Reinstall Win 7, it works very well, once your files are PROPERLY placed.

I want to install it in my coputer but dont I dont have a disk, what can I do?


There is no need to install any software before/after connecting the LiteOn device,
because Windows XP/Vista/7 already contain the necessary device-drivers.

So, just connect it, and restart Windows, and it will be ready-to-use.

Windows Media Player can be used to play DVD-movies,
and Windows has built-in software to write onto CD-recordable disks.

My light on dvdrw lh20 a1p will not read and durnt cd


I was having a problem getting my dvd (Lite-On LH-20A1P) to read my cds. I found a very simple solution that worked for me. I hope the following procedure works for others.

I have windows xp (I believe this solution may work for other window versions)

Go to "My Computer" on desktop (or in Start) and right click on it.

Click "Properties"
On the tabs at the top, click on "Hardware"
Click on "Device Manager"
Click the plus sign beside "DVD/CD ROM drives"
Double-click on Lite-On
On the tabs at the top, click on "Properties"
At the bottom, there is a box that is most likely checked that reads...
"Enabled digital CD audio for this CD-Rom device"

Uncheck it.

Do the same for all DVD/CD Rom devices you may have.

This simple solution worked for me. Now both my DVD and CD Roms are reading all of my cds.

I would suggest trying this simple step first before downloading any drivers or buying any 'Driver Update' programs - which may cause you even more problems than you are already having.

I have a lite-on dvdrw sohw-1633s that windows xp will not detect the driver. it shows cdrom.sys driver how do i fix this? I have burned dvd's befor and don't know how or why the driver changed.


Windows xp does not have a native driver for DVD writers. It always detects them as cdrom.sys. You need to use either the writing software supplied with the drive or Nero or equivalent
