Lite-on DVDRW SHW 160P6S door won't open on Gateway computer

I have had the Gateway computer for 2 years. There is not a disk in the drive and the door will not open at all. I have rebooted and still nothing. The computer recognizes the drive but that is all. I have windows XP media center edition. I have tried to download a new driver but it wants me to save it to a cd and cannot open the door to do it. Please help!

    I was able to open the door, but that is the only way it will open. Now I am able to download the driver. Thank you!

    I have had the exact same problem with my Lite On DVD/CD rewritable drive on my Gateway computer. Tray will not open even after inserting a paper clip into the hole located in the front of the tray. Only solution is to replace the drive. Got a comparable drive at walmart for $59. Very easy to install. Problem solved.

There should be a small hole in the end panel of that cd/dvd drive..about big enough for a needle or a paper clip end. gently place one in that hole, and press the release button..should open..

inspect inside for anything that might be keeping that from opening. Might be that drive needs to be replaced.

I have a problem w/ my Lite On SHW-160P6S DVD RW Dual Layer Burner which won't read any DVD or CD. Also, The door to the unit won't open unless you insert a pin in the little hole on the front of the unit...


You will have to open the unit. To be honest, it's a good idea to buy a new one as I had to change to belt and my drive started smoking when I turned my computer on.

What is the comparable drive for lite-on dvdrw drive SHW-160P6S?


IMHO this Lite-On model,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4893211&csid=_21

Except it is faster, will read, and burn dual layer disks, and also has LightScribe Technology.

(LightScribe Technology is from HP. You have to use HP disks, (CD or DVD) that are made for LightScribe Technology)

This is the specifications of the Lite-On SHW-160P6S for you to compare against,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1740403&CatId=482

This is information about HP's LightScribe Technology,

Hi,

Thanks for coming to FixYa, The problem you have is either a well documented software problem or a failing drive.

Click the below link, then scroll down and click the "Fix It" button. Follow the onscreen instructions, restart when it's done and see if your drive re-appears. If it does, you're done, if it doesn't work then your drive is most likely failed and you should replace it.

Hope this helps FixYa,

LITE-ON DVDRW SHW-160P6S


If your DVD/CDROM is not working ie..playing movies or not installing programs it may be becuase you have installed a software program that edited the regitry for the DVD/CDROM - (Limewire, any burning software, etc..) windwos installs an Upperfilter and or a Lowerfilter in the registry for the CDROM - to correct this follow these instructions:

To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers.
To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box (Vista) or regedit in the Run box (XP), and then click Regedit in the
Programs list if in Vista or click Open in XP.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue. (Vista)
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkeys: (must be exact keys)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Control
Class
Once you have clciked Class the click Edit on the menu at the top
Copy and paste the following key including the curly braces into the Find What box.
Click "Find Next"
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
3. Highlight by clicking on "UpperFilter" and "LowerFilter" ONLY - then hit Delete on the keyboard and select Yes
4. Shutdown and restart the computer

Where are you looking to recognize the disks? if it is in my computer in Windows it would most likely be because the Roxio software was what was recognizing the disks. generally Windows does not do a very good job of recognizing blank disks. I would look at the disk information in your current CD burning software and see what that says.
