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.

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.

My LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1H thinks its a cd burner???

It seems Lite-on Has a lot of Probs.In fact I had the same model on an SATA system.It would not burn dvd's or cd's.You can try updating your burning software,and reinstalling the drive through device manager.I actually ended up buying an LG burner....lo-and works without any problems.Good luck

Burning Problems

load the firmware AS DIRECTED for your drive- they are specific to open the software and then install the firmware- it works in the LOGICAL order only- took me hours to follow directions and fix it

Burning dvd data

its telling you that the dvd are not being closed, do you wait until the computer tells you its finished before you eject the disk, most lite on dvd's will eject themselves when done.
