Question about Lite On LDW-451S DVD±RW Burner
Hello there, i am currently using the LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-451S, i have tried everything from uninstalling the drive to resetting the BIOS. The only problem i am having with this drive is that it will not read DVD's or DVD data discs, however it will read CD's as well as burn them. I have indeed run out of any ideas on how to fix this thing, if anyone is able to lend a hand it would be much appreciated. :)
I installed Roxio 6 AND IT WIPED OUT MY LITE SCRIBE- I WENT TO THEIR WEBSITE AND DL THE MANUAL AND THE FILE http://www.liteonit.com/global/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogsection&id=9&Itemid=69 MAKE SURE YOU READ THE DIRECTIONS BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO OPEN THE NERO (IE) TO INSTALL THE ASSOCIATIONS---
I AM CONFIDENT IT WILL WORK BUT I CANNOT GET RID OF THE NEW PARTITIONS OR THE NEW DRIVE ASSOCIATIONS- "D" IS NOW "I", ETC...MESSED UP MY NETWORK SHARING BECAUSE OF IT-

You should try a firmware upgrade for your DVD machine. http://cd-rom.free-driver-download.com/LiteOn%20Technology/13693/LiteOn-LDW-451S-DVD-Dual-Firmware-GSB7.html or check the lite-on site to see if they have a newer one. Good Luck, Tim
