Question about Lite On SOHW-1633S DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Reading discs Hello, I have the LITE-ON DVD-RW SOHW-1633S built-in for my Advent MC3040. It worked fine for about 18/19 months then I tried to put a CD-ROM in, but all i got was the sound of it trying to load then a sudden beep, i tried the same with an audio cd the same thing happened, Then I tried with a dvd that loaded and worked fine. Is there anything that perhaps I could do. The beep happens with dvd-r/rws and cd-r/rws. Thanks.

Unless your pc is old, it's a bit drastic buying a new one when you can replace the dvd drive itself fo about 25 quid

Can read dvd's but can't read cd's


I would suggest upgrading the firmware for this particular model. There have been multiple errors with the Lite On drives not reading correctly until the firmware has been updated. This firmware can be obtained from Lite On.

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

Your CDROM is out. You can get a new one fairly cheap and they are easy to install. The laser goes out fast on the Lite-on's. can be caused by dust or just extreme usage.

I have a lite-on dvdrw sohw-1633s that windows xp will not detect the driver. it shows cdrom.sys driver how do i fix this? I have burned dvd's befor and don't know how or why the driver changed.


Windows xp does not have a native driver for DVD writers. It always detects them as cdrom.sys. You need to use either the writing software supplied with the drive or Nero or equivalent
