Lite-On LTN486S issues

I am not sure what the problem is but i have an Error Code 31 with my Lite-On LTN486S internal cd-rom drive. I can see it in device manager but my pc does not recognize it in my computer. It opens/closes drive tray but that is it. I have a Dell Optiplex GX400 running Windows 2000 Pro. Service Pack 4. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh and i can't reinstall windows, I do not have Windows Disk.

    I had the same problem and HAD uninstalled Easy CD Creator! Thanks to MTSPACE for doing the detective work there! I couldn't rollback the driver like micrsoft suggested, but Roxio.com has a patch available in their FAQ section that restored my CD-R

Error code 31 CD ROM driver not available how to install this driver


  1. Restart your computer if you haven't done so already.

    There is always the remote possibility that the Code 31 error you're seeing was caused by some temporary issue with Device Manager. If so, a simple reboot might fix the Code 31.
  2. Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before the Code 31 error appeared? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 31 error.

    Undo the change if you can, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 31 error.

    Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:
  3. Delete the UpperFilters and LowerFilters registry values. A common cause of Code 31 errors is the corruption of two registry values in the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class registry key.

    Note: Deleting similar values in the Windows Registry could also be the solution to a Code 31 error that appears on a device other than a DVD or CD drive. The UpperFilters/LowerFilters tutorial linked above will show you exactly what you need to do.
  4. Update the drivers for the device. Installing the latest manufacturer supplied drivers for a device with the Code 31 error is a likely fix for this problem.
  5. Replace the hardware. As a last resort, you might need to replace the hardware that has the Code 31 error.

    It's also possible that the device is not compatible with this version of Windows. You can check the Windows HCL to be sure.

    Note: If you're convinced that hardware isn't the cause of this particular Code 31 error, you could try a repair install of Windows. If that doesn't work, try a clean install of Windows. I don't recommend doing either of those before you try replacing the hardware, but you may have to give them a shot if you're out of other options.

Applies To

The Code 31 error could apply to any hardware device in Device Manager but most Code 31 errors appear on optical drives like CD and DVD drives.
Any of Microsoft's operating systems could experience a Code 31 Device Manager error including Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and more.

Whe i what to install software if i rech sating step it will stop what are the problem ?


im note sure if i understand the problem
Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

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

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

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.


hope this helps

Can lite-on-ltn4865 48x play dvd movies


If your Drive is a CD-Rome drive, surely it cant, for the drive cant read dvd disc. Replace the drive of yours with DVD-Rom or DVD-RW in order to play dvd disc, DVD-RW simply has the added capablity to burn on DVD discs

Error 39 canot load the driver


Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)


Uninstall and reinstall the driver

Uninstall the driver from Device Manager, and then scan for new hardware to install the driver again.

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the last time that you set up the device. However, sometimes, it will open the New Hardware Wizard which may ask for the driver. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor’s Web site.
  1. On the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Uninstall. Follow the instructions.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. Open Device Manager, click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes. Follow the instructions.

Wattage


It should say on the label, but if not, you can multiply volts times amps to get the wattage.The power supply for these puts out 2 voltages (12V and 5V), so use 12 V to get a more accurate figure.See if your label has volts and amps listed, then multiply these to get wattage. Watt=Volt X Amp.
