I have a Pioneer DVD RW DVR 107D I cannot get it to burn CD's I am looking for any fixes that may help me. It acts like it is burning and then after 1 track it finalizes and kicks out the recorde

Trying cleaning the lense with a DVD cleaning kit ,if that does not solve it then it will have to be replaced as this is a problem with the laser.
Some failing drives read but cannot burn others only read CDs and not DVDs and also burn to CD but no longer can burn to DVD and vice versa this is a common drive failure.

How can i make my Lite-on-SOHR-5238s CD-RW burner read and burn stuff on a DVD+R/DVD-R? Cause when i put it in my computer doesnt recognize it.

Hi Justin If it's a CD-RW burner then you can't burn any DVDs in it. You need to get a DVD burner instead - they are very cheap now.

I am experiencing problms when trying to record onto DVD, the msg says "driver error", is there any software problem which can be rectified?

it would seem that from your descrition the os system burning software may be corrupt. to prve that to be true and it not be a hardware issue or media issue, i suggest you download nero lite via the link provided below. the software is completely free. if this does not resolve your issue , then you have either a bad dvd rom or the improper media. all dvd burning media comes as + or -. the burner may only be able to read and burn from one type, unless its a multi read +/- burner.

Is the Lite-On Combo SOHC-5236k a DVD burner?

technically, this is only a DVD combo, meaning you can read but not burn DVD's with it. only CD-RW CD-R (or any blank cd's can be burn into this).

Lite-on DVD R/W combo LH-20A1L BLO5 Blank discs not recognized

Have you checked device manager to see if you have a yellow checkmark on your DVD./CD drives? if ok, sounds to me like the maker of the LH-20A1l BLO5 either needs to fix your problem or replace it. The Nero 7 should enable it to work correctly.
