Question about Lite On LiteOn DVD-ROM 16X Internal IDE, Bulk Package DVD Drive

Unable to burn from Z:\ Drive

I have a DVD Burner from LITEON that I'm currently using on a Windows XP Platform. If I repath my DVD burner to work from the drive letter "Z:\", system users (with no admin privileges) are unable to burn DVDs in common apps like NERO. However, system (local and domain) administrators are able to burn to the drive. The problem is that users cannot recognize the burner from NERO's burning wizard. Typically (like for the administrators), the drive is selected from a drop-down menu. This is not the case for system users. Anybody have any clues as to what permissions get knocked out that prevent the user from being able to burn to the drive in common applications? Thank you so much for your help!

    Logged on locally... It appears from everything I've read that I need to allow SPTI to work for non-Admin users since XP isn't supplied with ASPI out-of-box. I appear to have Win32 ASPI though, so shouldn't that bypass the SCSI alltogether?

LITEON LVW 5001 doesnt recognize DVD's

Laser either dirty or starting to go.Try cleaning laser with commerical disc cleaner,put a drop of rubbing alcohol on brushing.Laser can be cleaned manually with a Q tip dipped in rubbing alcohol but this requires opening burner.If you do this MAKE CERTAIN ELECTRICAL PLUG IS PULLED,lasers cause nasty burns.
Some times the problem is just the brand of disc,some brands don''t work in Liteon's.
If laser is going the burner can be replaced.Most of the Liteon 5001's used Liteon 401s burners,411s or 451s dvd burners all will work.The dvd burners mount from the bottom PC burners mount from the side so they would have to be adapted,many PC burners won't work in these older liteons some freeze up the second you hit fast forward.

Unable to burn using a LG GSA H58N DVD burner

With the built in drivers for windows XP it can identify and use DVD-RW facilities of DVD burner. However depending on your bios your machine can fail to burn DVDs if your bios can not recognise that output.

While loading the CD that comes with the DVD-RW did you get an error message if yes then it means you BIOS is failing to recognise your DVD-RW as an output method try to update the BIOS. But before you do that if you can try adding the drive on a modern (after 2002) machine with xp and see if it can burn DVDs there without adding any drivers.

if it fails on that other machine then you can be sure its not your BIOS but a problem with drive (which I suspect most actually). But if it works then then you need to update your machine bios.

HP DVD 740e wont burn Dual Layers anymore!

Try re-installing the software associated with the burner, so it installs the necessary drivers and files needed for the burner to work according to your needs.

Also check the connections and cables... sometimes moving it around causes the cables to loose some contacts.

Hope this helps...

Hey there dhruvr, your problem is minor. Even though your DVD drive has max speed of 16X, the software you use to burn can vary this according to their default setting. ranging from 4-16 times. You can change these by opening the extra option boxes, when you are burning, or going into the settings for each of your burning programs. You should only have to do this once. It will remember your last setting. Good Luck!
