Now I LIKE Liteon very much. THey never give me any trouble and as long as you keep the lense clean, they burn for years upon years to come. Okay, so it CAN write, but can't read? Very odd indeed. I would strongly suggest first buying a CD Lense Cleaner disc. Don't be cheap. Get Memorex or Scotch 3M. I would Suggest Memorex because the brushes on THAT disc are SPECIALLY-designed to clean the lense, but NOT to damage it. Next, try installing Nero Ultra Edition and do a Burn-in or a Read/Write test with a CLEAN CD or DVD and see if it will tell you the Read/write data rate. If the lense is just a BIT dirty, it WILL give you those kind of problems.
It may be the laser cradle rail is dirty or requires a little oil. Inside dvds the laser sits on a little rail which it drives along as it reads the dvd, this can become dry causing this problem. The cure, try a tiny smear of light oil but dont get any oil anywhere else, unplug from mains first, also clean laser, you can get laser cleaning discs cheap. petr
Mine did the same thing. I unplugged power, took off bottom ( seven screws on mine), took bar off covering lens ( two screws) cleaned rod that the door slides on with q-tip damp with rubbing alcohol. dabbed the rod afterwards with machine oil put everything back and now it works!
When you get no disk error, that is because of a problem with the
optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start
operating on certain disks better than others. Often the problem get
worse in time.
Try first using a DVD lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does
not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens
directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.
