Question about Lite On (SOHC5236V) CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive

1 Answer

My computer opens Lite On 5236 (drive E:) yet sees nothing?

PowerDvd displays the error: "a disk with unsupported format on drive E:"
Drive E: is the correct drive letter for the Lite On 5236 combo drive.
powerDvd (and all other media programs) work(s) fine for all AV stored on HD.
5236 drive plays, AND autoplays, CD and data CD's fine; and burns fine Audio only of course).
These types of files also show up as "files currently on the CD" when viewed under "my computer." (XPpro/pentium/etc w/NO Other conflicts or issues).
The other drive (cd-rom) works fine for all media/data.
BUT a DVD shows no files at all...is this definitely a prob w/ the drive or could it be with the registry or...? I used autorun fix from MS and arrived at the following:

What do i do if my hard drive is only saying unsupported format on the screen ?


Did you format this drive using Mac computer? The only time when the computer will display "Invalid or Unsupported format" is when Windows do not recognize the file format that you are using on the external drive. If this is the case you may need to format the drive, but backup your files first before doing that.

FREEZES UP AND STOPS.SCREEN SAYS CANNOT READ DISC OR UNSUPPORTED FORMAT


Check the disk for scratches, and attempt to play it on another DVD player or your computer, if it has a DVD drive installed. The drive will have DVD written on the front. If the disk isn't a commercial DVD but playable on the computer then the problem is a unsupported format. To make sure your DVD player is working correctly put a known good DVD the player to ensure it still works.

DVD plays in DVD player is not seen at all by Windows XP


Hi,it's obvious from your problem that the particular disc that cannot be viewed on your computer is of a formatt not supported by the windows XP.some DVDs are of low quality which can be viewed practically on any DVD player but as a result of their low quality and the sensitivity of the Windows they are not recognized by your computer. In as much as other DVDS play on your computer,it means there's no problem with your computer,but an unsupported disc formatt is been trying to be viewed and there's nothing you can do to view a DVD formatt not supported by your computer.please don't be bothered.
Thanks and take care
