  • WoknRoll Oct 22, 2008

    this is my first time at the fixya forum, so not sure of the protocal or how to reply, but i hope you see this. the bios is set to atapi cd rom as the first boot device, but it is ignored, and boots windows xp pro from the c drive. the burner is a lite-on ltr-48246s cd-rom drive, and am curious if it has boot capability, as i had a cd-rom drive, and had no troubles booting from it, but that has since died. i moved the burner drive up to where the rom drive was, and set jumper to master.

To boot from a Cd drive, the very first thing u gotta do is to enter the CMOS setup at ur system startup and change the boot device preferences, as
first boot device: CD Rom,
Second boot device as : hdd0.

then save changes and reboot ur computer, then reinsert the bootable disc and it should work.

all the best :)

Lite On LSC 24081 CD-RW/DVD-ROM Burner can read cd-rw but he can't read any dvd .i try the firmware Firmware Lite-On LSC-24081MX 3M3K but it said this utilite is only for Lite-On LSC-24081MFR


Hi and welcome to FixYa

There are two parts to a drive like that. I suspect the DVD part has failed.

In rare cases you might get it to work by trying installing new drive firmware. You'd have to see if on the manufacturer website they have new drivers for your drive unit, also you might want to try to boot from bios with a DVD to see if the drives reads it, maybe a windows 7 installation DVD or a ubuntu distribution DVD, or just any DVD to boot from bios, in any case that would tell you if any amount of drivers may help. If it boots to a DVD disk then we can assume it is OK. If you can't get it to boot then the drive is dead for DVD's.

Hope this information was helpful

Sincerely,

aDynamite.

Can lite-on-ltn4865 48x play dvd movies


If your Drive is a CD-Rome drive, surely it cant, for the drive cant read dvd disc. Replace the drive of yours with DVD-Rom or DVD-RW in order to play dvd disc, DVD-RW simply has the added capablity to burn on DVD discs

My pc won't boot from cd-rom... Bios recognizes both cd-rom drive and hdd, and boot sequence is set to boot from cd-rom but when it comes to boot from the windows XP install dvd it shows the message...


you are saying two differnt things here.. CDROM and DVD if its a dvd in a CD ROM it will not boot a windows disk if somehow this is written to a DVD Is it original?
Secondly is the Cd ( or DVD drive) actaully working. Being listed in CMOS does not guarantee that.

I know you have listed the drive as DVD but do you have 1 or two drives installed and not have the disk in the recognised drive.; have to eliminatge all possibilities of werror in interpretation here.

So assuming everything appears as it should, then the medial in the drive has to be considered at fault .. dirty disk.. drive needs iris clean, not an original disk, damaged disk, not a boot disk.. just a windows cvopy.;

Code 19 error indicating corrupted registry. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing works. I have the same problem with my memorex DVD ROM/CD RW drive. I think Norton 360 trashed my registry


yeah, if your registry has been trashed. you should use some registry defrag tools to fix it. I know a <a href="http://www.system-tools-software.com/free-registry-defrag/">free registry defrag</a>, you can look for it and have a try. Good luck!

try and roll back the drivers...also another way is to try and boot your machine off the cd drive..if it boots of the drive then you knoie that the drive is working and it is a driver error..if it wont boot off the drive the drive is probablly bad..make shure when trying to boot off the drive that you change your settings in your bios to for to boot from cd..

LITE-ON LTR CD-RW DRIVE AND SAMSUNG SD616 DVD-ROM DRIVE ARE NOT WOORKING. MY SYSTEM DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THEM


were they working previously? remove the case cover and check the flat ribbon cables connecting the cd drives to the motherboard. Make sure the red stripe on the ribbon cable is on pin #1 of the plug. It could be loose on any of the three cable connections and cause that symptom.

Lite-on LTR-52246s


As a first step try running this and then reboot the computer. Sometimes windows loses track of CD drivers. I see one or two computers a week at work with this problem. If they doesn't work it could be a few other things, let me know if it works.

Good Luck,
Matt
