Hi swing502

LiteOn CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive

This device would appear to have bben manufactured by HP and then subsequently branded LiteOn.

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. Please include information about the type, model number of your computer, how many Optical Drives (CD or DVD Drives) and the nature of its Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines, How-Tos and Solutions.

The Device Manager question (?) or exclamation (!) mark beside the drive is an indication of hardware or driver fault. The error code (41) would appear to indicate some kind of connection fault.

As this is would seem to be an older Optical Drive, I suggest you right click on this drive in device manager and then shut down the computer. Now disconnect all cables from the computer, open the case and look inside to check for connection or hardware faults with the drive itself. Use this opportunity, if you have not done so previously or for a while, to very carefully clean any accumulated dust, dirt and grime from the inside of the computer case, using a vacuum cleaner with a thin, slot-type nozzle attachment. Test the cable connection and, if necessary test a different cable. Then with side open, reconnect the cables and power up the computer. The Hardware Wizard should find and invite you to reinstall the Drive and reinstall its drivers from the Operating System's built-n driver database.

Almost every Operating System, especially current ones, does not require any additional drivers for optical drives like this DVD-ROM Drive. The drivers to run almost every Optical Drive are already built-into the Operating System

The only kinds of software you can generally download for Optical Drives are Firmware Updates, which improve and enhance performance specifications, rather than repair faults or make non-functioning drives function. Firmware updates (sp26547.exe) for this drive (for Windows XP Operating Systems only) can be downladed from here:

If it is not an HP Manufactured Drive, check the label carefully for the Manufacturer's name. It may have been manufactured by Sony, Hitachi, and Samsung etc. Go to that company's Support & Downloads website and check for Firmware Updates for the Drive

I am almost certain that no matter where you look, you will not find any additional drivers for this device.

If it is an IDE (ATA or PATA) Drive and the device continues to malfunction, even with a different cable, then it might be a Jumper Settings problem. Look at the back of the drive to see the jumper pins and jumpers. Look on the label to see a diagram of the various pin settings, and select the correct Master/Slave/Cable Select Jumper Settings, based on how many Optical Drives are installed and their connection order on the Ribbon Cable that links them to the Motherboard in your computer.

If Jumper Settings are not the cause of the fault, try connecting the Drive with a different IDE cable, and clean the Laser Lens with a DVD Lens Cleaner CD (although this will not be cause of the fault in Device Manager).

If the Drive works but it is slow, it may be a problem with the computer. Some operating systems will automatically clock an optical Drive down to a low basic speed after it has demonstrated a certain number of read/write errors.

Also try checking and changing the (SATA/) IDE Settings in BIOS and select and save the appropriate settings.

If none of the above actions clear the problem, then the Drive might be faulty and might need to be replaced. If the faulty Drive is an IDE (ATA or PATA) drive and your motherboard has SATA capability and free SATA ports, you are advised to buy and install a SATA Drive in replacement.

I hope this helps.

If this answer does help you, please take the time to rate it. This helps answerers better understand the needs and the point of view of the asker and guides us in exploring the best ways to provide useful, high quality answers.

If you need further help, please feel free to post another question or add a comment to this question.

Toshiba sd-r2312 driver corrupted . how can i update it ?

There is no such thing as a specific driver for cd/dvd readers/burners.
The operating system itself has suitable drivers for those devices.

However, it can be that the driver for the IDE/ATAPI-controllers is malfunctioning.
If you have chipset drivers for the mainboard, reinstall them. Otherwise remove in
the Device Manager the driver of the used IDE/ATAPI-controller and let the Device
Manager search for the Microsoft Windows drivers and install them.

Hi! my computer was just reformat and need to install driver for cd rom but i don't know which software should i download from internet. please help me how to find it for my atapi dvd a dh20a4h.

easiest way to find it for any dvd cd rom drive:

open the device manager
(F1 type "device manager" there will be a link to open that up)

find your CD drive in the tree and open properies.

it will tell you who manufactured the drive and what model number the drive claims to be (might be differant than the sticker)

google the manfacture and they are required to keep archives of all the devices they make.

if your using a more modern version of windows you can tell windows to use a differant driver from the properties page of the device. usually an atapi drive will work with a generic atapi driver from microsoft.

My Cd-Rom/DVD-rom don't work. It doesn't open any folder. I thought I have problems with drivers: SCSIVAX DVD/CD-ROM SCSI CdrOM DEVICE DVD-ROM SD-R2102 TOSHIBA LAPTOP SATELLITE 5005-S507 THANKS, OSCAR

According to the Toshiba website, the scsi cd-rom/dvd-rom does not require a driver to operate, but the driver for the scsi controller card it plugs into may need to be reinstalled or updated. Visit the following link, and go to the section labeled scsi cdrom/dvdrom. At the bottom of this section there are two links to websites where you may be able to find the drivers for your scsi controller card.

Toshiba DVD ROM SD M1302 driver

If you are using Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, NT or XP, and have an ATAPI/IDE CD/DVD drive, there is no driver needed (see Toshiba statement I have posted below). Under no circumstances, if DVD is properly installed and functional, will you need ANY driver!

If your DVD drive is a SCSI drive, then it may need drivers specific to the SCSI card you have installed (see the specs/manual or website for your card). You may also need the Adaptec SCSI setup, available at this address:

or use this address if you have a LOGIC based SCSI card or device:

Now, if you meet the criteria for the first paragraph I wrote, and your PC does not load the driver automatically (after a reboot or two) then you have a PHYSICAL or HARDWARE problem. Either the DVD drive is improperly cabled, improperly installed or defective.

Those are all your options. See below, from Toshiba website
good luck
