Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

if you physically unplug your cd/dvd restart your computer the plug it back in the found new hardware wizard should activate

if you dont have motherboard disk you will need to download the drivers
Adaptec's UDF Reader enables MultiRead CD-ROM drives to read UDF-formatted CD-R and CD-RW discs (such as those written with DirectCD) under Windows 95/98/98SE/NT 4.0/2000.

hope this helps

Need the correct drivers

Dvd/Cd Rom/Writers don't need a specific driver, their necessary drivers come with all the operating systems available. The only thing you can do is, update the windows or repair the Windows.

If you need further help, let me know with more details.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My light on dvdrw lh20 a1p will not read and durnt cd

I was having a problem getting my dvd (Lite-On LH-20A1P) to read my cds. I found a very simple solution that worked for me. I hope the following procedure works for others.

I have windows xp (I believe this solution may work for other window versions)

Go to "My Computer" on desktop (or in Start) and right click on it.

Click "Properties"
On the tabs at the top, click on "Hardware"
Click on "Device Manager"
Click the plus sign beside "DVD/CD ROM drives"
Double-click on Lite-On
On the tabs at the top, click on "Properties"
At the bottom, there is a box that is most likely checked that reads...
"Enabled digital CD audio for this CD-Rom device"

Uncheck it.

Do the same for all DVD/CD Rom devices you may have.

This simple solution worked for me. Now both my DVD and CD Roms are reading all of my cds.

I would suggest trying this simple step first before downloading any drivers or buying any 'Driver Update' programs - which may cause you even more problems than you are already having.

hi there,
I will try to help you with the best of my capability.
First, tell me how old is your writer?
Second, switch off your PC, open it up and unplug the writer and replug it again. Maybe the connection was a bit loose. When you restart your PC, make sure that your PC recognises the connection of the Writer. let me know if it works out for you.

    My dvd writer became dvd rom only, now I am unable to wirte the cd and dvd by using my dvd wirter which I bough 3 months back

    in these case your dvd writer became dvd rom due to optical lens problem. some other case dvd can read only cd or became cd rom also due to optical lens problem. change the optical lens or adjust trimmer for laser.
