Re: Lite-on LTR-52246s

As a first step try running this and then reboot the computer. Sometimes windows loses track of CD drivers. I see one or two computers a week at work with this problem. If they doesn't work it could be a few other things, let me know if it works.

Good Luck,

Hi, The DVD/CD Rom Icon has dissapeared on My Computer. When I go to control panel - device manager and click on the dvd/cd rom drive icon I get the following message in the genaral...

You will need to re-install the driver. Right click the device in device manager and select properties. Navigate to the driver section and uninstall all existing drivers. (It may *not* give you the option to do that, depending on how corrupted the driver is, but it should.)
Reboot the PC.
Upon reboot, Windows should find the new device and install generic drivers. It will probably ask you to reboot a second time.

Seen by windows as cd rom drive only

Check your device manager and look for flags or exculmation marks under the drive.
If none found, go to lite-on and download most recent drivers for the drive.

Depending on your opearating system CD-WRITER LITE-ON LTR - 52327S and any other cd writer lite- on are plug and play devices which does not need an installer.

All you need to do is properly connect your CD writer on your pc while your machine is off, when you turn on your computer it should be displayed under my computer.

If its not shown under my computer window then its either.
1. Your device is not properly connected
2. Your device have a power fauilure problem
3. Your cabling is faulty

If your device is connected but does not function properly you can
1. update your driver

Computer doesn't recognise CD drive at all

This may not help, But worth trying. First make sure the eide braid is connected firmly on both end and the power cord is pushed in all the way. if all that is okay do a Google search for lite on they have a website with lots of drivers and firmware upgades. Just need to find yours in the list. Good luck
