    This is not a desk top item. It is an Liteon HDD/DVD recorder/player.

    Yes the drive has worked for 2 and a half years. I have had the equipment for just under 3 years.
    Thanks

Hi there
It certainly sounds like the DVD/RW has gone down, you can pick a new one up from a reputable company like amazon.com. check this out.

There is a mechanical eject hole on the optical drive. Simply insert the tip of a
pen or paperclip into the hole and push to eject the tray. (If your computer's
optical drive is a slot-load model, it will not have an eject hole.)
 
as also try to upgrade the latest drivers for your dvd drive.also check out with another company dvd discks and also remove and reinsert the connections and check out again.

What OS are you running?

Has the drive ever worked?

How long have you had the drive?

If you want replacement, FixYa is not who you need to be talking to. Either return to the store you bought it, or contact the manufacturer.

Dvd player on lite on not working


Try to buy a Head-cleaning disk and follow the instructions that comes with it on how to clean the player. Or ask a guide to use the CD lens cleaner.
After cleaning try using the drive... If not repeat cleaning process 3x
If it fails then the drive needs total replacement.

Good luck...

Lost recording software kit


If you lost the software, you can try contacting LiteOn for a replacement, but you'll probably have to go to your local tech store and buy more software. I recommend Nero or Easy CD/DVD Creator, or get the opinion of someone that works there. Make sure you do NOT open it until you get home and check online that it has the features you need, as you will be unable to return it if you open it.
