Question about Lite On Televison & Video

9 Answers

I just bought an external 20x Lightscribe SuperAllWrite DVD recorder. It writes DVD's all the way sometimes and most of the time it writes the DVD part way then gets an error. Writing the lightscribe label works part way sometimes and most of the time not at all. The Nero 7 essentials won't install. I'm using a netbook Acer Aspire One.

    I've never seen the power save suggestion until now. It makes a lot a sense. I will try it and let you know.

  • SnowDog98 Dec 03, 2008

    I shut down all the power save modes in everything I could find and it still doesn't work. It will go part way thru and shut down when writing disks and lightscribe burning. That's why the power save mode made sense. It was like the hard disk was shutting down before it could finish the operation. Can you give me any other suggestions or are we done.

  • SnowDog98 Dec 03, 2008

    I've tried everything suggested. Nothing worked.

  • SnowDog98 Dec 03, 2008

    I nvever got Nero-7 installed; never used it. Wouldn't burn dvd. Wouldn't label with LightScribe. Burns both part way then stops.

  • SnowDog98 Dec 04, 2008

    None of your suggestions have worked so far. Any more suggestions? The internal dvd drive in the desktop pc burns fine and burns the lightscribe image fine every time I use it. Hardware is useless if you can't depend on it everytime. The external liteon drive reads fine both doesn't finish writing a dvd or burning a lightscribe image on my netbook. The extenal drive also didn't work when I tried it on the above mentioned desktop Pc.

 The DVD stops writing halfway....
did you try writting on the DVD small file and see if they are written properly... If they are then there is no problem with your installation and also  no problem with the software you are using.
the only problem with the external drive might be the interfacing  unit as someone mentioned  the unit is either getting heated up. vary quickly or the interface is not secure enough to manage the motion of the  DVD (it is spinning inside at a fast rate and so the unit is vibrating)
so eitherway you will hae to open up your unit and see inside.
pls post back  about the first part (small files are being written or not)

Since you say you are using dvd-r dvd's, try use dvd-rw dvd's and try burning to see if it works because you might need a re-write-able dvd instead of a recordable dvd to work with the burner.
Since you say that the lightscribe labeler on works sometimes, try un-installing any software and re-installing it and see if it works then.

Hi,

The problem is with your Nero-7, please uninstall it and go back to Nero-6, your problems will be solved.
With version 6 you can burn dvds and play and have a Firefox open with a few tabs. I could never do that with version 7.

Good luck

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The favorable action would be seek warranty replacement being new. If for some reason, warranty would not be availed, then it would be suggested that the traverse guide pin where the lens carriage move along be cleaned and re-lubricated. It would not be a lens read error. But of course, this would mean that the unit has to be opened up.

As to the Nero installation, try re-installing with the anitvirus and anti-malware temporarily disabled.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

You have more than one problem in there.
Test the DVD on a different computer, one with a good Windows OS installation. IF the unit works fine, as I think, it means that the only troubles are with Windows.

You can try a system restore or using software like the norton, if you have norton utilities, but to fix this kind of problems is often necessary to reinstall windows.

    If the DVD is new, it read correctly, and does not write, this is because of the unit limitations and for the type of media used.

    If this is the Lite -on , the unit supports the following formats (or is supposed to ):

    20x DVD±R Burn, 16x DVD±R Read, 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW, 8x DVD±R DL, 12x DVD-RAM, 48x24x CD-R/RW, Black, SATA

    This DVD is supposed to read both +R and -R, however, being a DVD -R -RW, and not a real double layer , it will always have trouble with DVD +, particularly if they are not good brand ones.

    Try using DVD-R if you want to keep this unit.

    If the unit is not new, use a Dvd Lens Cleaner , this will increase reading /writing capabilities by cleaning the lens.

    If this does not help you may consider to get a replacement with a different model.

    This unit is not faulty, and the problems in writing DVD are caused by:

    Unit limitation/Support used.

    Windows and the PC used is slow and has problem (if it did not install Nero, Windows is bad).

    Solutions:

    To fix Windows you can only reinstall it.

    On the DVDs used, Get good brand -R DVD s and try .

    If I was in your shoues I would return the unit and buy a double layer model, like this ones (chose ones with dual layer).

Is the recorder a + or - drive or is it a combo +/- drive? Be sure your media matches and I find that even in combo drives that + media seems to work better

    Make sure that the laptop(s) are not going into power saving mode, even if plugged in. Possibly change the power features to desktop and set all saving features (even screen) saver to none and see what happens then.

    Did I misunderstand but did you say @ one point you had it work on a computer?

    Try setting the recording speed to the slowest it will allow.

My dvd not writing but read


There can be several reasons for that. Try to use Nero software if you are using LG SUITE. Also the DVD write speed and format has to match that of your writer. Ate you copying another DVD or writing data or edited media such as movie video or music files? Check compliance format.

Im having trouble with my drives it wont read the cd or burn the cd or dvd


Hello there,

If your LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe does not read disc, burn cds or dvd, then it means there is a problem with the lens of the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe.

You will have to replace the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe or have the lens replaced.

Be sure not to use the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe to watch movies as that weakens the lens easily.

Hope this helped.
Goodluck

You will need Nero burning software. It will after the normal burn show you a screen where you place the image you want to burn for lightscribe. Another failing with lightscribe is that you must have lightscribe discs!
