Do you have another CD drive. If so, insert the driver cd into the drive, then plug in this drive. When it says it found new hardware, tell it to look in the CD for the drivers.

If you go to control panel/system/hardware/device manager. You can roll back to your previous driver. Unless of course it wasn't working then either. In that case disregard this solution : )

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.

Not recognized


Go into your BIOS and see if you can get it to autodetect the drive. You should be able to this but I can't tell you how to because all BIOS setups are different.

Then save your BIOS and reboot.

The drive should then be recognised as the right thing.

Hope this helps
