My recent recorded dvd's are freezing. Not the complete movie, sometimes I watched for a half hour and the rest of the movie starts freezing. Could this be the light scribe dvd super multi drive/CD...


Hi, The problem that you might be getting is with your DVD burner on the computer. Usually there is a time that a mechanical problem occurs especially when you're using it all the time. Have you tried the movies on other players just to check if the copy is good or not? If in case the movie also freezes on other players. It could be the DVD that is malfunctioning already. It may be a substandard DVD that is why it is already freezing up. IF is it ok. you might need to have the DVD burner checked for any mechanical issues like the motor that spins the DVD or the lens that reads the DVD.
Thank you for using Fixya, your recommendation is highly appreciated for the free support.

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.

Replacement DVD-Rom has video but no audio


You should be able to get sound thru the IDE cable (this is the same type of cable also referred to as a ribbon cable, your hard drive connects in the same way) that is connecting your drive to the motherboard. turn the pc off and unplug power and reseat this cable on both ends be careful as the pins are fragile and will break

if this doesn't fix your problem let me know and we will try anotherr solution

Lite-on DDW-813s


Open the drive (dont break it). Eject the tray, under the tray you should see a small belt drive. Replace the belt with a rubberband of approximatly the same size (a little smaller wont hurt). Re-assemble the drive and it should eject fine. Lite-On drives seem to go through these belts pretty quick, I have fixed hundreds this way. Never had one I fixed come back for the same problem.
