While I can't promise you'll find help there, Lite-On does have a support site:

BTW, the rating 'Inappropriate' that you gave to dna_killer was itself inappropriate. He may not have cured your current problem but wanted to pass on his own experience with stubborn DVD problems.
Please reserve your use of that rating for responses that clearly are off-topic or just plain stupid.

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

Try this:- Please go ahead and click on start > in start search type in device manager {(in vista ) in case of xp right click on my computer > properties > hardware > devicemanager}.
In device manager click on the + sign beside the cd- dvd > then right click on the driver and uninstall it .
Then in start search type in regedit {(for vista ) for xp in run type in regedit}
Look for some thing like
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Then SYSTEM
Then CURRENT CONTROL SET
Then CONTROL
Then CLASS
Then find {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
The whole thing looks like this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Then on the right hand side look for something like upper and lower filters and delete the upper and lower filters....
Restart the notebook . It will help

LITEON DVD RW SOHW 1653S


You just answered your question......."all drivers I assume present and ok" update your drivers..how old are the drivers for WIN98? how old are the drivers for XP. These are relevant to having the correct drivers for the correct operating system. The benefit for you is that you are running to operating systems seperately on two drives or am I mistaken. They need an update on the drivers for each OS and not a firmware update one is hardware the other is software? Your problem is the software.
