Lite on DVDRW LDW-451S will not burn or recognise any dvd /cd media? Windows XP says device is working well. Any Ideas


Here are some steps that can help you isolate the issue.

To check the functionality of your Drive try to boot outside windows, like booting to Windows Operating system, if this works then your Optical drive is working, if not then you have to replace it.
If it is booting up, try deleting the upper and lower filters, click on start, run, type regedit then ok. click on the [+] HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class then click on {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}, then delete the upper and lower filter. then restart your computer. Also you can try different CD as sometimes optical drive are sensitive to the disc.

I hope this will be able to help you.

Thank you for choosing Fixya.

Lite On LSC 24081 CD-RW/DVD-ROM Burner can read cd-rw but he can't read any dvd .i try the firmware Firmware Lite-On LSC-24081MX 3M3K but it said this utilite is only for Lite-On LSC-24081MFR

Hi and welcome to FixYa

There are two parts to a drive like that. I suspect the DVD part has failed.

In rare cases you might get it to work by trying installing new drive firmware. You'd have to see if on the manufacturer website they have new drivers for your drive unit, also you might want to try to boot from bios with a DVD to see if the drives reads it, maybe a windows 7 installation DVD or a ubuntu distribution DVD, or just any DVD to boot from bios, in any case that would tell you if any amount of drivers may help. If it boots to a DVD disk then we can assume it is OK. If you can't get it to boot then the drive is dead for DVD's.

Hope this information was helpful

    I just installed a slim DVD burner, model DS-8A1P-18C, on my Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop, but my computer doesn't recognise it. Now what???

    Sometimes the system will take care of finding drivers in the background and not let you know. (You can sometimes see balloons/small windows at the bottom right of the screen giving you progress.) That's probably what it did.

    You need to check the bios on start up. You should have your CD/DVD drive as the first boot device.
