Will not read DVD's!!!

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. :)

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

Lite on DVDRW LDW-451S will not burn or recognise any dvd /cd media? Windows XP says device is working well. Any Ideas


Hi,

Here are some steps that can help you isolate the issue.

To check the functionality of your Drive try to boot outside windows, like booting to Windows Operating system, if this works then your Optical drive is working, if not then you have to replace it.
If it is booting up, try deleting the upper and lower filters, click on start, run, type regedit then ok. click on the [+] HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class then click on {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}, then delete the upper and lower filter. then restart your computer. Also you can try different CD as sometimes optical drive are sensitive to the disc.

I hope this will be able to help you.

Thank you for choosing Fixya.

LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW 1633S ceased working correctly


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

Lite-on dvd+rw ldw-401s


The lite dvd+rw ldw-401s has the very same problem most of the time.

You will need to check the master slave properties through bios.
IF your dvd drive is properly configured, then it will auto detect it.

Is your sys on which you have have your windows is fat or ntfs?

Please reply then i'll advise you further if your system still doesn't recognize r drive
