Try a cleaning disk, if that doesn't help, goto the manufacturers site and check for a firmware update in the support and drivers section

My dvd drive has started acting up. It no longer recognizes -dvd.


Hello,

It has been my experience with Lite-On to be a great optical drive replacement. In the 10 years I've been in business, Lite-On has been my top choice for pcs. If you continue to have problems try a different BRAND of blank DVD media.

Good Luck

No Disc


I had this identical problem just after a year and a half of use. I tried cleaning the lens... that didn't change anything. I tried using movie discs that I knew had worked before.... same problem. I took the unit apart and found the problem. There 5 or 6 (I forgot exactly) capacitors on the power board that are black cylinder types with silver tops. If the tops look like they are bulging, then It requires changing capacitors on the power board. I ordered them through the internet, removed the old and installed the new capacitors. Now everything works great.


The capacitors are: 10v 2200uf 105-Degree Capacitors. They cost about 20 cents a piece.

Good luck.

LG LS50 DVD/CD-RW DRIVE won't recognize blank dvd-r


Yes does not read DVD-R because if your LS50 Labeled like this (DVD/CD-RW) means that can read only all DVD Disc and cannot write on DVD blank only CD blank.


You can burn only on the blank CD-RW or any blank CD.

Doesn't recognize disks anymore


This is a common problem with the Lite-on LVW range of DVD recorders due to changes in the construction of more recent DVD R media. It can be solved with a relatively simple firmware upgrade.

You'll need to have a blank CD and a CD/DVD writer in the PC you use to download the file.

Follow the instructions on the website to upgrade your firmware, this should then allow you to write to DVD's once again.

Won't read DVDs


Hi, Ive just repaired several liteon's ( incidently they are identical inside to some philips models ). In most cases the non writing or non reading problem is caused by dust on the laser glass. You have to open the unit then remove the dvd drive then remove its covers and just give a wipe of the laser with a clean non fluffy cloth. If theres lots of dust in other parts of the drive then this will need to be removed also as it could easily get onto the laser when in use. Even almost new liteons can suffer the problem , it only needs a little bit of dust to top the laser shining onto the dvd , instead the dust just reflects the light back. Hope this helps.
