Re: dvd rw

External dvd/rw drive wont play on my hp pavillion chromebook

Make sure the USB port(s) are in working order. Check them by using Device Manager? Then check to see if the drive is visible in My Computer?

Lite on dvdrw lh 20a1l wont play cds

Hmmmm.... Most new DVD drives have the problem.
Clean the cd with water and shampoo if it is having too much scratch. Try after drying. Is that helping?

NO? Is that CD working in other drives?

YES? Then you better replace the drive if it is under warranty.

The drive door stays open on the dvd recorder drive after attempting to close it. the drive will not read the cds. it opens up without depressing the button.

try to read carefully the description of your dvd-r may only read dvd format and not cd. their are drive indecates to reads dvd-Rw and also cd-reader.

Write error message with liteon dvd writer..

I had the same issue with a liteon DVD drive I had. It worked fine and then one day it couldn't write to a DVD if I paid it to. I troubleshooted it for a few days, installed all the latest updates and patches and still nothing. From what I could tell, it baiscally died. So fortunately Liteons are relatively cheap so I just went out and got another LiteOn and it worked just fine. I would consider purchasing a new Drive.

No DVD sound LiteOn LH-20A1L

The audio lines from the DVD player should be hooked up to the sound card.  If the two audio wires are not connected, no audio will happen.

Not recognized

Go into your BIOS and see if you can get it to autodetect the drive. You should be able to this but I can't tell you how to because all BIOS setups are different.

Then save your BIOS and reboot.

The drive should then be recognised as the right thing.

Hope this helps
