do you have a burning software installed? you can download nero express @ majorgeeks.com
you mention that your friend gave it to you? was it working fine before? its easy to set up your new dvd writer whenever you have already installed a burning software like nero. well, you can also try clone dvd. it works very well too.
and also check for firmware upgrades for your dvd writer...you can find it here...
If you lost the software, you can try contacting LiteOn for a replacement, but you'll probably have to go to your local tech store and buy more software. I recommend Nero or Easy CD/DVD Creator, or get the opinion of someone that works there. Make sure you do NOT open it until you get home and check online that it has the features you need, as you will be unable to return it if you open it.
Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for DVD/CDROM Drives, click it and your DVD drive will appear.
Right click on it and delete.
Restart PC and windows will find your DVD drive again and install it.
Try a dvd again and see if it is working, if not it's time to buy a new one i'm afraid, but they are very cheap to replace.
