Works fine, except won't recognise DVDs

    i have the software that came included with it. it just continues to read as if searching..

    I have the same drive and same problem. Lite on recommended updating to the latest firmware but I have been unable to find it on their website. Mine is a LTC-48161H KQHC. The last 4 letters apparently have something to do with the model differences as the link Lite on sent me would not work with mine.

    F*CK LITE ON LTC 4816, CANT READ BLANK DVDS...YET CAN PLAY DVD MOVIES FILES

    same here: writes and reads CDs, but when a DVD is inserted, makes some sounds (for a minute or a couple of minutes) and then becomes quiet. When I try to open the drive in Windows Exlorer, it says "Please insert disc" (on Windows 2000). Reading DVDs does not work on openSuse 11.0 either. I updated the firmware to the latest version from Lite-ON homepage (firmware version CO48KH0R).

My DVD drive not working properly.when insert the dvd it coms empty.


i would try running a cd/dvd cleaning cd in it first. (availabe at most retail electronic stores)
then i would try downloading the latest firmware (software that programs the drive for cd/dvd formats) from your cd/dvd manufacturers website and installing it, making sure it is correct for your model cd/dvd hardware.
if it doesn't read ANY discs then it may need replacing and you can order it online for 40 bucks or less.
Regards

How can i use ltc-48161h dvd-rom without PC? i have cabels


You need to purchase a 5.25" external enclosure with the same connection type as your drive (which is IDE). You install your drive into that enclosure and then use the drive via USB. The enclosure will have all the cables you'll need. I recommend this one = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817145050

My Lite-On combo sohc-5236v does not read CD but it reads DVD.


The reason for this is most likely Copyright protection. If this is the case, it will read DVDs as it is only a DVD-ROM, but what happens in the case of CDs, is that they recognise the drive as a Burner, and the Copyright that is embedded into the CD wont let the drive read it. This also happens with DVDs in some DVD burners.

The way to test this, is by getting a CD-RW disc that has music or files on it, put it in the drive, and see if it reads it. If it doesn't, then you may have a fault with the drive, but if it does read the CD-RW, then the only way round it that I know of, is to buy a CD-ROM drive and use both drives.
