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.

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







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.

    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.
