LG vs Lite On

I am confused. I would like to know the difference between the LG LRA 850 dvd recorder and the Lite On LVW 5005 dvd recorder. I want the DVD recorder to record vhs tapes from my vcr and Hi8 camera tapes from my camcorder. Is there anyone who can do a comparison of the 2 sets for me.
thank you. Please send reply to

Re: LG vs Lite On

Both are just the same features just to write file from your hard drive. Maybe your point is you want the video from your VHS tapes will transfer to your hard drive. The only way to copy the video from your VHS is you need an external VHS player at the same time it will record the running video to a soft copy.

Please check this maybe this will be helpful

Please rate me solve if you like my solution.

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd burner then plug them back in this should activate the found new hardware wizard or you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click you will have options to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

Take a paper clip, bend it, and insert it into the small pin hole on the front of the player. It should be next to the eject button. This will open the tray up manually.

Format a DVD +R DL onto a LG Burner

LG makes many different models. DL disks are dual layer, which are used for video DVDs. They do not not need to be formateed. Write once media like DVD+R, DVD-R, etc are not usually formatted unless you want to use them like a write once floppy. If you are trying to make a data DVD (for use with a computer only), then I don't think you want to use dual layer media.

in window under my computer is your DVD writer shown as DVD-RAM drive, if not then re-instal the drivers for your DVD.

If its installed as DVD-RAM then right click the DVD-RAM icon in the my computer and choose properties, under the recording tab select enable recording, try burning a cd using the windows xp based roxio by sending your files to the DVD-ROM.
If it burn a CD this way then all you neec to do is use a different CD burning application software.
