Question about Lite On LH-20A1H DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Lite On LH-20A1H DVD RW burner refuses to recognize DL disks?

So I'm trying to burn a Double Layer DVD using my Lite On DVD drive, which has so far been perfectly capable of doing everything else I've asked it to do. Except now I've discovered that it refuses to recognize double layer disks. Now, I was under the impression this drive was fully capable of burning double-layer disks. Am I wrong, or is my DVD drive broken?

    Ditto here. It won't even recognize Verbatim 8x DVD+R DL. I did a firmware upgrade that didn't fix it.

    There is something wrong with this new DL media from Verbatim, it's happening to a lot of Lite-On users including myself. Check out CDfreaks.com as they try to figure this out.

I have an LH-20A1S, & I am using Roxio Easy CD
Creator 6; Yes, I know there are newer versions, but they all ****! Anyway, it USED to work just fine in recognizing DL DVD's W/the updates from Roxio's site. & now there is no option there for this size (8.5)w/in the actual Creator prog. Is it the drive? This JUST started happening recently. Any clue if it IS the drive? & if so, any idea what caused this? I've always used Lite-On's & have NEVER had this sort of prob before! & of course it is out of warranty, & a discontinued model to boot! standar DVD drives are real cheap inprice these days, but STILL I do't wanna have to buy an new one if I can 'fix' it. BTW, I have updated the latest firmware for this drive from Lite-On's site too, & it didn't resolve this issue either!

I put in a dvd/rw disc and it will not read it. in My Computer it comes up as a blank disc (cd)


Make sure the discs you are using are compatible with your drive. Some drives will burn dvd - r discs but not dvd + r discs. Hope this helps.

It seems Lite-on Has a lot of Probs.In fact I had the same model on an SATA system.It would not burn dvd's or cd's.You can try updating your burning software,and reinstalling the drive through device manager.I actually ended up buying an LG burner....lo-and behold...it works without any problems.Good luck
