Write error message with liteon dvd writer..

I had the same issue with a liteon DVD drive I had. It worked fine and then one day it couldn't write to a DVD if I paid it to. I troubleshooted it for a few days, installed all the latest updates and patches and still nothing. From what I could tell, it baiscally died. So fortunately Liteons are relatively cheap so I just went out and got another LiteOn and it worked just fine. I would consider purchasing a new Drive.

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.

Can't get reliable recording discs

There actually is a recommended list on Lite-on website but I have used bulk-paq, ridisk and phillips without problems until it stopped reading any alltogether. I recently cleaned it with a DVD cleaner disk and its working properly again. Also on the website is a download for updated firmware which may help in your case.
